I am so happy to announce the marriage of my brother Stuart to Ashley Bickmore on sunny July 12. They were sealed in the San Diego Temple and had a reception outside in El Cajon. We enjoyed real Mexican food, singing, dancing and lots of smiles. We were all happy that the wedding ceremony was pretty short, since we started late. That, however, did not take away from the sweetness of the moment. Smiles and happy tears all around. They started off their marriage enjoying Walt Disney World in Orlando. I can't wait to see all the photos...I'm such a girl.
This is random, but the centerpiece was a bowl with one goldfish (too many died so there was only enough for 1) and when they were set on the tables covered with plastic tablecloths, the sun was magnified through the bowl and burned a hole through the tablecloth and even made a mark on the table. It was cool. It was a nice warm July day so it was good the bridesmaids and groomsmen wore flip flops along with the newlyweds.
(So, this brings my family's total to 20, with 6 out of 8 children married.)
As for Robbie and me, we are enjoying our time together. I am onto my second summer school class and Robbie continues to work hard and study for the contractor's test. Our best friends just bought a hosue so we have been helping them move in, paint and set up. We are really happy we have friends with a house now, especially with a pool. Can you say, "Party!"
