A Wedding and a Birthday

Two important things happened today.  Ari turned one year old and then Aaron and Heather kicked off their week of wedding festivities by getting married on the back porch!  The judge came by to do the official business today but Joan will do the proper ceremony on Saturday when we all head down to a lodge in Hocking Hills for the weekend.

Surrounded by family, in kilt and in Cons....

...they say "For everything that has been, thank you! For all that will be, I do!"

Back inside, Teagan reads aloud from Old McDonald

What's this? Five cousins all sitting down at the same time!

The happy couple (and tired toddler) enjoy a meal of my best lasagna ever and a glass of mead

Heather made seriously awesome carrot cake and muffins

And Ari very much enjoyed one...

 ...and then another!

Heather and Aaron, you are loved and I'm so glad to have been present for the official beginning to your lifetime together.

Ari, my sweet boy, you bring joy to everyone you meet and I've been grateful for you every day of your life.  I'm so happy to be your mama.

What a beautiful evening surrounded by loving family.  Thanks to everyone for making it such a special day.
