Wedding!


So guess who got married over the summer???

Most of you know by now that my one and only favoritest daughter got married in Aug.!
This is how it all came about -

I knew that they were going to get engaged, I knew for a while. But the BF had actually called me and told me he was going to ask her and needed my help getting her to the place where it was suppose to happen - one of their fav. restaurants. I asked Ashley if she could meet me for dinner and if she beat me there to just go in and wait for me (knowing that I would never actually show up). So, she got there and walked up to the rest. in the rain and a man covered with an umbrella tapped her on the shoulder - it was Sean. He asked her to marry him right there in the rain, under an umbrella in front of their fav. restaurant.

About a year ago they had gone to NYC for vacation and had such a great time that they thought it would be great to get married in Central Park in NYC. So that's what they did!

On July 21st. I had a real nice shower for her at Americana Winery and had it catered. My friend April made beautiful cupcakes, I made all the decorations. It was perfect and beautiful and I couldn't have asked for it to be any better!

On Aug 1st. they went to New York City - and got married in Central Park on the evening of Aug 2nd. Then spent a couple days in the city.


Then on Aug. 18th we had a reception at Taughannock Park. I rented a small pavilion and a huge tent, lots of tables and chairs. It was a casual dish to pass event. Sean's mom decorated the tables and was my go-to person in time of need (she was also in charge of alcohol - very important job), his dad did an awesome sound system. My friend April make the cake and Glen, April, her husband and I did the lights. April and Dave own a Taxi co. in Ithaca and we decorated one of the taxis and he went to pick them up at their apt. I was very nervous how everything would go - but everything was perfect!

TN - Post #2


My mom and SD live in a beautiful "Lake and golfing community". The houses are gorgeous and all their friends are so nice!
We went on a boat ride with a couple of friends of theirs and docked up to eat lunch.
The weather was perfect!

Here is Mon, the SD, and Me on the boat -


 Here they are with their friends (the boat owners) they were wonderful people!

Here are some pictures of houses along the lake! Like Holy cow! Huge houses!





Then we went through this tunnel with all the swallow nests under it!

Here are just some random pictures around the lake -



Then there was this guy... nope, wouldn't want to be him!

And this is where we ate lunch -
It was a great day! See now I can do boats like these, just not the big ones like the Titanic!
