Amy and Eric’s Reception

A couple weekends ago my parents graciously offered to watch all three kids while Andy I drove up to North Olmstead, OH to celebrate with Amy and Eric, who married in Vail, CO the week before. It was such a fun evening with friends, food, drinks and dancing. And we accomplished so much so quickly—for example, getting in and out of the car. I had forgotten how fast one can do that without three children.

Congratulations, Amy and Eric! Thank you, for a most fun evening, and here’s to many years of love and happiness.

We did, however, miss the annual Pork Festival for the event. Katy and Tom, however, did not, and were a great help to my parents with Sophie, Owen and James. (Thanks for the pictures, Katy! And thanks for the night out, Mom and Dad!)
