If your picture is not here, it's not because I don't love you enough. It's probably because you look better in person than in my pictures.
Wow, what a gorgeous cake!No, this picture just does not do my niece Carly justice, but she is always a good sport and was trying so hard to cooperate with me.
My niece Julie, and Clara.
Julie is even prettier than this picture shows but I so rarely get to see her since they live in Denver now. And this is the first time I've seen Clara in person. She's a little doll baby.
I guess I'm focusing on nieces because next comes Whitney with Bret. I worried about them last night since they drove all the way home to SF after the reception.
(btw, doesn't Bret look like Nate Berkus?)
Two of my sisters in law, Kim and Suzanne.
Oh, and I had to include this since I've never seen one of these at a wedding before. It was the "Children's Room." Set up just for them, complete with coloring books, crayons and stickers.. What a great idea!
I think one of the friends helping with the reception apparently had a hot flash because they opened the door just behind the cake. So this led to a brisk breeze going down the center of the room. I noticed that guests were beginning to vacate this area trying to avoid the cold.
So I stepped behind the cake, and went outside to close the door. While out there I heard all these little voices. Then I realized some of the children had escaped from the Children's Room. It was COLD and DARK outside plus there was a beautiful tempting pond and fountain.
I couldn't even see who was out there, or where they were exactly. I heard someone say, "Go tell Robin" but I didn't want to bother the mother of the bride. So I told Davey, Ashley's 14 year old brother.
He said, "I'll take care of it." but his voice was not Davey's voice. It was so much lower. When did that happen?? He spoke with such authority. He rounded up all the kids, got them inside and told them all to stay inside. With his new voice, I'm certain they listened to him.
Hooray for Davey!!
