And now for the rest of the story. (All the really good pics in this post were taken by my sister Carolyn.)
1. The girls did so well with their cousins. There were only a few minor, childish snafus but those were expected and dealt with. It was so great to spend some time with the long-lost Canadian cousins too. Zeke even almost beat me in checkers.
2. All the cousins, plus a couple of Cora's cousins, were flower children. They carried signs made by my sister that said "Here Comes the Bride." And as far as I know they did quite well during the actual ceremony. I was sitting over on the side, waiting with suckers for when they finished the job. But I did get to watch all the faces of the wedding guests, and they all oohed and aahed as the kids walked down the aisle. They were pretty cute.
3. The day before the wedding we had a formal rehearsal lunch and a family fun BBQ dinner at Cora's family farm. They had a jousting match set up, which the kids all loved. We also managed to sneak in a few family pics. That was a fun day.
Welcome Labor Day Weekend!
