Joyful Exhaustion

Saturday was a long, beautiful, exhausting, joyful, fun filled day.

Our day started at 7:00am. After packing and getting ready, we made a quick trip to the chiropractor and were off to Muskegon.

We arrived around 9:15 meeting up with Daniel and the boys while they finished breakfast. We went to the church and helped with some preparations and decorating. We went to the big blue house and ran a few last minute errands with Daniel.

Once the boys woke up, we got them dressed and brought them to the church. They were absolutely adorable. There was a lot going on, and the boys were getting antsy.

The ceremony started at six thirty and was the most beautiful ceremony I have ever attended. The lighting, the music, the decorations, all minimal but intimately special.

You could feel the love exuding from the bride and groom. This beautiful story has been in the making for a long time.

Then the reception. Two families joining and celebrating the new life.

As the majority of people left, we stayed to help clean up. We brought the boys back to the big blue house and got them in bed by ten. They were exhausted. They had so much fun and were ready for bed.

Tony and I were exhausted. Every muscle in my body was sore. But I was happy. It felt great to be able to share in our friends life. To help them as they start together.

In the morning we had breakfast with the boys and got them dressed for church. We went on an adventure to the pond to explore the backyard. Once we dropped them off for Sunday school, we packed up our stuff and headed to the lake.

It was a beautiful weekend.
