The Rehearsal Dinner and drive to the wedding!

The Bride & Groom meeting for the Rehearsal at the Alexander Mansion!

The wedding party heading in for our "practice runs".

Nikki and her mom, Angie at La Hacienda where the dinner was held.

Lindsey and Emily ( the flower girls) with their flower girls bears from Build a Bear.

The food was delicious and the rehearsal and dinner went very well! A great time with the wedding party the night before the "Big Day"!

So far, this is my only picture I have from the wedding. Kevin and Adam ( Nikki's brother) drove with Chris and I to the wedding. We had to keep Kevin and Nikki from seeing each other in the parking lot. The girls snuck Nikki in and the guys kept Kevin hidden while helping him get ready in the car. He was sooo nervous and such a handsome groom! Steve and Adam took good care of him :)

What do you do when it is 110 degrees outside????

Take the boat out for the first run of the year!! Tim put a hitch on his pathfinder to see if it could handle pulling the boat. It was no problem at all.

How many times do you drive over the bridge and see the boats on the lake and wish you were there instead of on 35?? We enjoyed our view of the bridge on Saturday :)

Jim always kept his wedding ring in this floating key chain when he would wake-board. Saturday was Kevin's first time out wearing a wedding ring, so guess where he keeps it?? :)

Tim getting ready to go out and do his famous 360's on the knee-board. I don't think he has beat his Mom's record yet :)

Matt's turn~ the beginning of the season is always filled with the best wipe outs. Matt is particularly good at them. You heard "OHHHH" come from our boat several times when it was his turn, as he is upside down and landing on his head. Oh, Matt!


Have a safe and fun summer everyone ~

June 10th ~Today Is Our 25th Anniversary!!

25 years with my best friend~ THEN & NOW :)
George Eliot
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

Our 25th Anniversary ( Part 2)
Chris and I spent our anniversary at Lantana Lodge. This was just 2 days before Kevin & Nikki's wedding and was a nice little "get away".

We had actually gone there on our 20th anniversary as well but the lodge was just opening at that time and they were not prepared for us arriving during the week for dinner. The menu consisted of about 1 choice which was fish ( I don't like fish). So, after we told them it was our 20th anniversary they asked us exactly what we wanted. One of the employees actually went to the store and bought all the food. They returned and cooked us up a wonderful meal complete with flowers, champagne and dessert. All "on the house"!
We were so impressed with how well they took care of us 5 years ago that we decided to go back. This time, a tornado blew in and as we were eating dinner the restaurant flooded! (Notice the green sky outside the window). Again, they were very nice, moved everyone to different tables and lite candles on each table as the power kept going out. Romantic in a weird sort of way.

We spent the night at the lodge this time and had a wonderful morning drinking our coffee on the gazebo that overlooks the lake.

Followed by a great breakfast in the now"dry" restaurant and then back home to discover the storm tore one of our trees in half and broke the fence :(

The week came in with a storm and ended just beautifully!

It's Time For a Wedding!

The time and place have been chosen, the bride and groom are anxious, excited and nervous all at the same time.
Moms & Dads are watching their children grow up and begin their lives together just as we did many years ago.
Brothers & sisters, Grandmothers & Grandfathers, family & friends all here to support them as they make a commitment to each other and to the Lord.
Kevin & Nikki ~
This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
I love you my son and my daughter~ Momma Minich

An angel watching over ~

Chris's brother Dave was in a serious car accident on Sunday. His truck went nose first into a concrete ditch after another driver stopped at a stop sign, looked and didn't see Dave.He ( other driver) then went and "Pow" "Bam" CRASH"!( Dave's description:) He was taken to the local hospital by ambulance and then air lifted to a hospital in Phoenix.
He ended up in ICU overnight with a fractured vertebrae in his neck. He is now home and probably has a long recovery ahead. Dave~ we are sooo glad you are ok, gave us all a good scare. Thanks to everyone that was/is praying for our brother Dave.
Here are some pictures from the accident;
This is Barb, Dave's wife in the ditch after the truck was removed
