Shopping Day

Yesterday we went to Green Bay and did TONS of shopping for the wedding. The guys got fitted for their tuxes. Look who came up for the day along with Joe's brother Ken...!!!!!!!!!!!!! So good to see Brooke, haven't seen her in something like 5 weeks.

Then we stopped over at Ray and Bonnie's house for a quick dip. It was a very hot and muggy day - today is too!!

After cooling off we all headed over to Taco Burrito!!

It's a great place - lots of good food.

Ken and Brooke made it back to Shepherd's safely last night - Joe & Peter are still here and will head home this evening. Still a lot to get done, but we're working on it. Lots of fun!!!

An update, of sorts...

I feel like I should update, or say something...but, what? There is not too much profound to say. Basically we are plugging along, getting small things done for the wedding. I feel like we are at the point where we really can't do much, but will be overloaded in a week or two. I have made some food, stashed it in the freezer, made a trial cake, worked on altering the dresses, done yard work...all that stuff.

Bethany is working a lot of hours at two jobs. Brooke is working away at Shepherds - maybe having too much fun and Brennan is in Canada for the week and it seems like he has been gone forever. So anyway, here are a few pics of what's been happening.

It takes a backyard rehearsal dinner to finally do what you've always wanted to do!!
This is a CAKE, not a hat!!!
We have managed to sneak in some fun!!

A tornado touched down last night about 5 miles south of our house on Hwy. 32. There was quite a bit of damage. The fire station in Riverview was heavily damaged, as well as many homes and acres of pine tree plantations. The tornado left a path about a quarter of a mile wide or more for over 20 miles.
We received only heavy winds and a bit of hail. The first two pictures
are of the Riverview Fire Department.
This is the house of the lady who cuts my hair - also her shop. Lots of trees
down and some roof damage, but everyone is OK.

What's left of a storage unit facility
Traffic was pretty backed up - lots of people out looking.

Our electricity was out from around 5 p.m. last night until 1:30 this afternoon. Fortunately, we were able to go up to Scott's mom's cabin in Townsend and spend the night. Scott is heading down to Riverview with his chainsaw and is planning to help some friends whose home was damaged. The pictures don't show how bad it really looked down there. I've never seen anything like it in my life. There were no fatalities and only one serious injury that
I have heard of.

Bridal Shower

We had a great time at the shower last night. There was a nice turn out and Bethany received many wonderful gifts.
Kim made the cute cupcakes and Tammy made chicken salad.
The "candy bar" was pretty well cleaned out by the end of the night!!
Pam did a wonderful job with the devotional.
Thank you to everyone!!!
Here's a picture of two of Jeff & Crystal's girls - Beth (on the left) & Anna. They have since had Melody & Lydia (about 2 weeks). (Just thought some of you former extension students might like seeing this one!!)
