Oh no He Didn't!

Oh yes he did!

Tom Rand, formerly a bachelor til the rapture, tied the knot this past weekend. He married Ms. Andrea Thompson of Littleton, CO.

Luke was an usher and we were both ecstatic to be attending a wedding in the town in which we live. The last time that happened was 2002 at our wedding! Since then we've been in 15 weddings (combined) that have plastered themselves across many of these great united states!

The wedding was held at the chapel at Cherry Hills Community Church (picture Six Flags Over Jesus). Absolutely beautiful venue with stained glass and a big center aisle, stone and brick. Very nice.

The reception was at The Cielo at Castle Pines (very schmuckity-schmuck). Such a great place with a huge water fall in the background and great views of the Rockies.

Highlights of the blessed event: 1. seeing old college friends Grant Edwards and Craig DeBell (whom I joked I could never marry, because then I'd be Michele DeBell). I forgot how stinkin hilarious those guys are! I laughed almost the entire reception. 2. We roasted S'mores at the reception, S'MORES PEOPLE! Awesome. 3. Seeing Tommy Tye kiss and dance in public with unabashed abandonment. It was something to behold.

So as requested by my lovely college roommies, here are some pictures of the happy event. Enjoy!

Peace Out,

We spent the 4th of July in the great state of Ohio. It was so great to see all of my extended family, some of which hadn't met Sam yet.

I learned a few things whilst on our trip:

1. NEVER fly United. Unless you are desperate...NEVER.

2. A good idea for one-year-olds on the plane who won't watch videos STILL, and who will not sleep: a medium ziploc and random crap (ie- 1/2 plastic easter eggs, foam letters from the bath toys, tongue depressors, mini hairbrush, etc.) Sam LOVED putting stuff in/taking stuff out. 20 minutes, kid you not, on a 3 hour flight. It was worth it.

3. Creaking floorboards wake any child up. Fireworks being shot off a mile down the road-not so much.

All in all, it was such a great trip. Sam got to play with his cousins and so did I!

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Peace Out,
