Winter Weather Wedding...
We braved the -4F degree weather in Minneapolis Minnesota to attend the wedding of our very best "son" and his fiancee. Brad and Amy were so happy and we could not be any happier for them both.
Brad and Mr. C get into lots of fun and "trouble" when they get together and do extreme outdoor sports. All of Amy's family is in Minnesota and knowing how Brad loves the snow and cold that is how the wedding came to be in Minneapolis in Winter. The daytime temperature was 8F degrees and I had not experienced that before and I am still shivering. Mostly I stayed indoors and when I explored I walked the skywalks they have that link buildings together.
This is the happy newly married couple having their first dance. Everyone had a wonderful time.
Lots of the wedding attendees went curling at the Frogtown Curling Club. I did not go as I was warned it was very cold.
Lots of fun to be had by the folks with strong backs. Mr. C went and had some good fun.
From Minneapolis we flew to Detroit and then on to Little Rock Arkansas. We visited Mr. C's sister and her husband. The day before we were to fly home Little Rock had Winter storm "Thor" who deluged snow and ice upon the land. We were stranded for a day. Our flight from Little Rock to Atlanta was quite the comedy of errors. Folks in Little Rock are NOT prepared to deal with snow and ice and had no idea how to function. No taxi to the airport, McDonalds closed and left us with no food, the TravelLodge had nothing to offer us. Thankfully I travel with some protein bars. By the Grace of God we finally got a ride from a man who worked at the airport property and he drove us to catch our flight. No rush as everything was delayed for hours. By the time we finally got back to San Francisco exhaustion and starvation was the only report. Delta didn't even have peanuts on board. We are definitely so thankful to be safely home even if it was a day late. Air travel is quite the trial.
While we were gone we had one good day of rain. Still no snow. The sun is shining and every plant is sprouting new green leaves and blossoms are abundant in gardens everywhere.
Now I must get busy with chores...unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping, housecleaning, lots of downstairs reno still to do and of course prepare for 2014 taxes. I would honestly enjoy being outdoors cleaning up the yard and weeding but not today and probably not tomorrow. And I do hope I can fit in some time for Creative Bliss. I shall also be squeezing in bits of time to catch up on your blogs and what you have been doing. I had no computer or access while gone so I have missed so much. Thank you for your comments which I read and enjoy. May those of you with too much cold and snow begin seeing signs of Spring. Blessings y'all...
