Rebecca's Wedding

I finally got my hands on some pictures from Rebecca's wedding. Flash photography was not allowed in the church, and as I previously mentioned I didn't get to go to the reception, so.... I wanted to share pics of the beautiful bride and her new husband:

The reception was at the Old Post Office in downtown St. Louis - I've never been there, but it looks really cool in this picture!



We got lots of cool camping gear for wedding & shower gifts that we had yet to use - that is, until this past weekend. We went to Cuivre River State Park in Troy, MO and camped for the weekend. It was a lot of fun. The ladies took a 4-mile hike on Saturday, and it was Maggie's first hike ever - fun times! Turns out I didn't take many good pictures, so I have to borrow a few from Alyssa (thanks!!).

Weddings & Other Stuff

We had two weddings yesterday - Rebecca & Paul and Darrin & Chrissy. I went to Rebecca's ceremony in Clayton at 4:30 then rushed to St. Charles to try to make it to Darrin & Chrissy's wedding at 5:30, where Jason was a groomsman. I got there just as the ceremony was letting out, but was there just in time for the reception. One of the groomsmen's gifts was tuxedo t-shirts, so within about 45 minutes of the reception starting, they were all donning them. As I mentioned on my last post, we had some house guests last weekend. Jason's friend Leslie, who lives in Texas, and her husband Micah and son Drake came and stayed with us for the weekend. We had a great time hanging out with them and Drake is a doll! We used our patio and our fire pit for the first time - very exciting!!
In other news, Jason and I had our 2nd anniversary on September 23rd. We haven't gotten to celebrate yet - hopefully one of these days - but Jason did get me two dozen beautiful roses. If he keeps this trend up, our anniversaries are going to be expensive when we get into the 10s and 20s - that's a lot of roses. Also, I ordered a monogram a few months ago at Melissa's Uppercase Living party. I finally got it put on a canvas and hung on the wall. I like it a lot.
