Finally, More Pictures

The Rehearsal Dinner
I can't even begin to describe how perfect Gina's uncle's house and land are. It was one of the most picturesque places ever. And a perfect place for a gathering. Wonderfully relaxing, food was good, atmosphere beautiful, people warm and welcoming. We didn't get a lot of pictures because we let the kids have the camera and they went wild playing photographer. It was part of our grand plan to keep them away from the river bordering the back yard where the party was. Beautiful, but a bit freaky for a mother with two very curious boys.
The happy couple
Mom and sister Leyni, (the boys call her Aunt Nini)
Oh joy another reminder of how I need to DIET

Backwards and upside down...what a ride!

We went to this sushi place in Belleview where they just have everything on different colored plates on a conveyor belt and you pick off what you want. At the end they count up your plates and each color plate is worth a different amount.

They even make gooeyduck sushi in Washington. Not for the faint of heart. It's so much greener there, amazing.

Awesome to see these pics of the Friday dinner and other parts of your trip! Yeah- what a happy, fun to be around couple!! It was exciting to meet the gracious, fun personalities of your family. Extremely patient, not to mention clearly experienced with dealing with jet lag!
Hey speaking of, "This is not about me": I was personally not expecting to feel as emotional during the celebration day as I did. I was prepared for my dad to be weepy, and not at all expecting to be so overwhelmed by the beauty/love myself! Leyni articulated her awe of the beauty of all the friends, etc outside the dance floor on Saturday, and I'm glad I got to hear that. A big happy sigh for Rites of passage :)
