My Nephew's Wedding

Blogger has changed the way you create new posts and upload photos and my aging brain is struggling with it all.  I can't figure out how to move photos around in the order I want them.  It's probably easy, but I don't have time to ponder it right now so here is a nonchronological selection of photos from my nephew Russell's wedding to lovely Megan.  They were married in the Columbia River Temple (Tri-Cities, Washington) last Saturday.  Joe, Emma and I drove up, semi-caravaning with my sister Barb, her husband Dennis, and my folks.  Oh, it was fun.

Sisters Barbie-Denny-Julie.  Yumping for Yoy.   We were copying the groom and his posse, who had just yumped for yoy a few minutes before.  I think we did pretty well! (but didn't get as much air as Chris)

And again, the bride and groom.  They're a great couple.  We're really happy for them!

McLain Andrew!

Yesterday was an all-banner day with the arrival of our first grandchild! He kept his parents up all night, but it was worth it. We visited last evening and took a few photos.

They wouldn't allow Emma in because of her age, but they allowed Andy to roll Mac out by the doors, and she was allowed to get a closer look.
Here is the proud papa after a 36 hour marathon. We are so blessed to have everybody save and healthy.  Congratulations Kat and Andy.
