Busy, Busy, Busy!!

A couple of weeks before the wedding, a midst packing, and unwrapping, and planting, and excavating, we were also trying to pull the closing of our house together. We had a visit home from Dan's cousin's for a baby shower, and graduations galore.

Wallace made a few new friends

Jennifer has also wanted some kind of arbor for her reception area. We were planning on making the reception hall into a backyard. Our idea was an outside reception inside. All the homey, fun elements of an outdoor reception without the threat of rain and NO bugs! She had been talking to Grant and Dan about this for sometime so one Sunday afternoon we went down to the property and gathered up some nice branches, and smaller trees from some of what we had to take down. Dan, Jen and Grant then put the thing together at home in the garage. They worked on it for a couple of hours and then asked me to come out and look at it. I wish I had taken a picture of the arbor then. But I snuck by and grabbed a few of it now. I will post more of it at the wedding soon.


I should have mentioned in an earlier post that we celebrated my Grandpa Shore's birthday in early April. He was 102. Although a little frail, he was still so sharp and quick witted. A week or two before the wedding he suffered a minor heart attack that landed him in the hospital for a little while. When he was released we were told that he would need to go to the nursing home side indefinitely, so they moved him from assisted living into the nursing home.
