Thursday, June 7 was rehearsal day.  First order of business was to get everyone to the park where the wedding was to be held in Pawnee OK, rehearse, then head 40 minutes west to Perry OK and do some preparation at the reception hall.

First, thanks to Karmen for the photos.  Hoping others would share their photos with us, I never took my camera out of the car.  Microphone in hand, Kalynn and Kyle are all smiles BEFORE the start of rehearsal.  Afterward, you ask?  Well, we'll see about that!

 Brenda and others watch the proceedings. The venue was really nice which is more evident in the wedding photos I'll post later.

See, rehearsal is over, the sun has set and indeed, still smiling!

The project I was involved with at the reception hall was hanging a parachute from the ceiling. Kyle spent a good amount of the evening on a ladder stringing support rope. 

Kalynn hangs on to her Dad (Dan) as he holds the parachute up to take out slack as the ropes are tightened.  Just why a parachute is needed at a wedding reception will be revealed in a future episode.

Wedding, Reception, Wedding

A busy few weeks since my last blog post.  Several posts would be required to catch up and I don't have time for that right now so here is a brief (very brief) update.  It also will get Kyle's bloody finger off the front page and I know of at least one person who is ready to look at something else.  :)

Brenda went to S Carolina twice during May to see Kamela.  Then we traveled to Oklahoma for the June 9 wedding of Kyle & Kalynn.  They came to Eureka for a reception on June 23.  Karmen joined Brenda & I for a trip to Pennsylvania for Ashley's wedding on June 30.  Everything went exceptionally well and nobody melted due to the temperature extremes during June.

More photos and updates to follow but for now this photo of our and Kalynn's family will do.
