A Beautiful Wedding

On Saturday April 26th our Oldest daughter and last child was married to her best friend!!! We are still in Hawaii.
Here are four of the five flower girls---all of our sweet grand daughters.
I was so happy to be able to make their dresses and think they turned out very well! Ryan and Sarah!!

Mom and Dad with the Bride!!
The day was cloudy and there is a lot of "VOG" which is smog from the active volcano's eruption of gases. The locals say this hasn't happened since the early 20's. But all the sunshine was on the beach anyway!

The ceremony was beautiful and very special. Ryan's family all made it from Alaska and all of our children and spouses and girls were here as well as my Mom and my sister in law.

We keep saying "all our children are married" Each and every one of them have all married such amazing partners. They all complement each other so well. . We are so very blessed. Then you add in the grand daughters and we can't say enough about how much we love them.

We spent the entire first week all together in a big house across from the beach.
I will post more on our family week together and preparation for the wedding.
In the meantime we are enjoying the last few days of our vacation and are relaxing and enjoying each other's company.

Looks like it was a wonderful wedding. You all look so happy and relaxed. I love how you talk about your kids spouses as if they are your very own. (Which they are!)
