It has taken me awhile to try and find the words to express how I feel about Steve and Courtney's wedding. It was so beautiful. It was quite emotional for me. Steve has always had such a tender heart. When he was three years old he was backed over by a car when we were at our Easter picnic. His leg was pushed out of the socket by the weight of the car. We spent 5 days in the hospital. I was so thankful that he was all right. It didn't take him long to figure out how to get around and within a week after being released from the hospital, he was running around again. I'm so grateful for him and the joy he has brought to our family. His sense of humor; that grin. And now he has found such a sweetheart to spend his life with. They compliment each other so well. The look on both of their faces as they said their vows. It was so awesome!
While the newlyweds were honeymooning, the rest of us spent the day at a new park by Cody's house. It was so much fun! We ate, played sand volleyball, flew kites, played in the water, and Kenna and I played McDonald's on the playground equipment. There are pipes with little speakers on each end. They are quite aways away from each other. Kenna would say, "Welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order please?" I would tell her what I wanted. Another little girl was watching and listening to us, and then she said, "I'd like some nuggets with honey, ok?" It was so funny. They had the water fountains there, and Aaron and Kenna wanted so badly to play in it, but it was a little cool to be playing in the water.
That night we went to Cody and Chris' house. They cooked us meatball subs, they were SO good! We played a really fun game, and I wish we had had more time to play. It was great to see Chris' mom. She is so much fun!
Thanks to all of you who traveled so far to be with us for Steve and Courtney's special day. It mean the world to us!
