I'm not sure how Molly's mom and dad pulled it off, but the day after the wedding, they hosted an open house for family and friends. Because all of us have pretty big families, we could only invite so many to the wedding, so it was a good way for others to celebrate -- and it gave us some time to be together in a less formal situation.
Molly's family live in the country and it was a wonderful setting -- peaceful, laid back and lovely. A good place to just hang out!
Kevin and Molly opened their gifts and we enjoyed talking with each other and catching up.
There were also games like croquet, volleyball and beanbag toss for anyone who wanted to give it a go.
The kids were invited to this one, which gave it a magic all its own.
And the bigger kids even did pull-ups on one of the big, old trees.
After we took off from there, the rest of Rick's family still in town came over for a BBQ and more talk.
Yup -- Rick caught some Zzz's! Meanwhile I caught up with Rick's aunts and mom and met the new rival for Rick's affections.
I regret to report that he has fallen for a younger woman. I knew the day would come! I just didn't think the competition wouldn't quite yet be two!
This sweet miss has personality plus!
But then, I should have figured it out, because so do her mom and dad!
So, we're slowly getting back to normal. Spinning and the gym, getting the house in order, looking forward to the lake.
And yes, catching up on our rest after all the fun and merriment!
