Birthdays and Weddings

On Sunday we traveled down to Williamsburg for a wedding. The Groom is the son of good friends of ours. We (the parents) all started work as interns around the same time. We've played on softball teams together (well the guys anyway) and we've had season tickets to University of Maryland football for over 20 years. The Groom, in recent years, has been coming to more of the games then his Mom. I'm not sure that will continue now that he is married, but we'll see. Here is a picture of our friends, parents of the Groom.

The Bride and Groom. She's a teacher and he an architect. They both attended the University of Virginia. She is his roommate's sister. I would have loved to ask them if that was a bit awkward at first.

It was a lovely ceremony and we had fun at the reception. I've never seen a bride so excited to be married. She reminded me of a little kid about ready to open her presents on Christmas Day. We were fortunate to be seated at the same table as our friends (parents of the groom) since as it turned out, we didn't know anyone else there. Ann and I are not the best minglers, but the other people there were nice and made us feel welcome. Plus there was an open bar! We spent the night in Williamsburg so we didn't have to worry about partying and then having to drive home. Speaking of driving, the trip to and from was much easier than expected. It took us only two hours each way.

Yesterday was also the twins birthday. Daughter#2 and The Son turned 26. They are getting old. LoL. Anyway Happy Birthday Twins! Here is a picture of the birthday duo from our Shirlington to Purcellville bike ride last September.
