We had a fabulous weekend in Gainesville!!!

We hung out with lots of great family, friends and family of family. My parents, Ryan and I stayed at the Sweetwater Inn (where we had our wedding reception).

Roger & Beth threw a great BBQ on Friday for Kristen & Ben.
At dusk, Ryan, Jess, Evelyn, Dan & I went to watch the bats come out of the bat house at UF. There are over 60,000 of them living in this bat house.
Saturday morning we planned to go to the Butterfly Gardens, but didn’t want to brave the rain, so we went to the Natural History Museum instead. My favorite part was the gigantic shark jaws – some of which were found (or at least the teeth) in the St. John’s River.

Evelyn’s favorite part was the mirror in the bathroom.

Ben & Kristen’s wedding ceremony was just perfect. They had audience participation, a realistic and beautiful ceremony which dissussed not only love, but the challenges people will no doubt face in their marriage, and how a wonderful marriage comes from being a partner with your best friend. It was very personal and the music was so beautiful.

The reception was a lot of fun. The cake was wonderful, and the grooms cake (cookies and milk)was my favorite!
The ya-ya’s hosted a delicious Sunday brunch. The newlyweds are off to Jamaica. I’m wishing our honeymoon never ended, but we’re already hoping/planning to take a trip for our first anniversary!

Congrats to the Newlyweds!!!
