The wedding of Marshall Boyd and Emily Flynn

The wedding took place in Grandville, Michigan and was attended by lots of relatives from all over the US, and one friend of Emily's came in from Germany! I think it was the Priest who said that shows how special Marsh and Emily are.
My sister Anne and her husband came from Naples, Fl, and her daughters flew in from Houston, Tx., Tampa, Fl, and Delray Beach, Fl. Mick's family came from S. Sioux City, Ne, and Minneapolis, Minn. One cousin, also from Minn, drove in on their motor home with their four children. Unfortunately Marsh's Grandma Boyd was recouperating from surgery and couldn't come and an Aunt who stayed back with her and her family. We also missed Mike, Vicky and our grandsons, Nadan and Connor from California who were unable to be there.
We're so grateful for all who could come and celebrate with us and miss all the family who couldn't be there. I hope they enjoy the photos that Mick took! I know I do!

Emily's three sisters, Sara, Beth, and Stephanie, the brunettes, and Marsh's sis, Mandy, the blonde going a little crazy. It was a wild and fun wedding!

Mom and sister Betsy at the new apt.

This has been a busy summer with helping my Mom move into an independent living apartment. Everything has worked out well with the move, now we hope the house will sell. It was a big decision but was her idea. The apt is on the ground floor with a nice walkout patio door to a wrap-around patio, lots of windows let the sun in. My two sisters and I were there getting things ready for the big garage sale and it was nice for all of us to gather as that doesn't happen too often.
