eventful weekend

For a change, we had a pretty eventful weekend.  And it wasn't even due to the fact that it was Father's Day yesterday.

Saturday we went to a friend's wedding.  It was fun because I got to see a lot of people that I used to work with back in the States.  It was nice catching up with all of them.  Plus, Emily got to see her friend, Ruben. 

He is the plant manager at Lovett Pallet.  That is where I worked for 8.5 years before I moved here.  Every time we visit Indy, we stop by Lovett Pallet so we can see everyone.  She has always been fond of Ruben.  I used him in order to make her wear a dress (remember she is my tomboy).  I told her if she wanted to see him she would have to put on a dress.

I don't have pictures (why didn't I take my camera!) but I do have some of her in a dress from yesterday.

Yesterday was another friend's little boy's baptism.  They went all out for the part and had it catered and plenty of drinks were available.  As well as a band.  You know the band was my favorite. ;)

Here is Emily cutting a rug with my sister in-law's cousin.  Emily danced with a few different people.


My husband is NOT OK with having his picture taken.  Here is proof.



But, I finally did get him to cooperate and have his picture taken with me.  And I will admit that I don't like my picture taken either.  So, this is a rare moment.


Here is a small video of the girls dancing.  Please note that Emily is NOT used to wearing dresses.

Oh man, Veda is going to LOVE that video of the girls dancing. And you'd never know Emily was such a stranger to dresses, the way she so effectively makes it sway back and forth!

Okay, so wait a minute...where was the wedding? Did you go back to the States? I'm confused, which is nothing new. Great photo of you and your husband! :)

Jackie,

The wedding and the baptism were both here in Jalos. A lot of the guys from the job I had in Indy are from Jalos. The plant manager, Ruben, it was his brother getting married. So, a bunch of guys that I know were visiting fromt the States for the wedding here in Jalos. I wasn't really clear so I can see how I confused you! :)

Okay, I got ya. That's interesting how they're from Jalos and ended up in Indy. What a nice opportunity to see them again.
