This has to go down as one of our busiest weekends on record.
Last month, my Mom turned eighty years
Thursday night and all day Friday were spent preparing for the big event. When Saturday morning rolled around, we were blessed with a gorgeous day. We held the luncheon at the Pheasant Run Farm Bed & Breakfast, and it was catered by my friend Sue...
Sue worked in the food service industry for many years, and is now a high school social studies teacher. She put in a full week of teaching, and on top of that, spent a lot of time on top of that making a delicious luncheon menu for us!
Mom thoroughly enjoyed herself! Here is a picture of Mom and the "milkmaids"...
...but only one of us is still a milkmaid! :)
After the luncheon was over...and after the evening milking was finished...the whole family gathered at my parents' house for the evening. There was a lot of laughter...
This is classic Mom, Aunt Alice and Uncle Dave...
I just love when they all get together. They have so much fun!
So...we got home around 11:00...lost an hour of sleep due to the time change...got up and milked...and were out the door for a friends wedding by 8:30 am. The wedding was 1 1/2 hours away, but the Sunday morning traffic was light, and we made good time.
Our friend Dawn married Bryan during the Sunday morning Church service where she is a pastor.
Congratulations Bryan and Dawn!
One more picture of "the girls". We've done this at every wedding, and this is the last one!
One of the girls wasn't able to be there, and we're missing another very special member of the group...our friend Glenda, who passed away in September. It's at times like this especially, that we think of her and miss her so much!
We pulled in the driveway around 7:00 pm, and I was ready to crawl up the steps to bed. What a wonderful whirlwind of a weekend. If we oversleep tomorrow, and you hear the cows bawling to be milked...you'll know why!
