It is also about descendants. Judy and I are very proud of our children and our grandchildren. My oldest grand daughter married a wonderful young man on Saturday.
Tananda and Nathan looked wonderful!
They are good people and should be happy together forever.
The sun started to shine and it warmed
up a bit for photos. Later, we rode to the North Stake Center for the
family dinner. This was a beautiful roast beef dinner,
complete with horse radish, which I really enjoy! We sat with Andrew's family, then with
Rachel sat at Blaine and Nina's table
too, doing an incredibly good job of blowing
bubbles using the party favors. I did my best blowing bubbles too,
but she was in a much higher league.
Even the teens and pre-teens had fun chumming with their cousins. My mother aged 95 was there, and saw her new great granddaughter Felicity for the first time. They were the oldest and youngest of my immediate family.
At the reception, Judy and I were among the
people asked to come up to the microphone, and Judy told the story of
Charlotte Eley's brooch. Since my ancestor Samuel Wright gave it to his bride Charlette Eley in 1880, Tananda is the 6th generation of
brides in our family to wear the brooch. I couldn't top that story, so I
said nothing ... not typical of me at all. I especially loved the family history connection that the brooch makes.
In every way it was a beautiful
wedding! Best wishes kids!
