A couple of wonderful things have happened since my last blog post:
My oldest daughter had a beautiful baby boy on March 27th named Leland. He is a very good baby and is only waking up once a night already! He’s very strong, and was able to hold his head up fairly well by the time he was 3 days old… A lot of people thought he was a month old already! I wish I could go down to N.C. every weekend to see him, but that’s just not possible.
Then, this past Saturday (April 18th) I got married to my sweetheart. We couldn’t have ordered a better day, it was absolutely beautiful. One of his seven sisters was able to come and his brother & brother’s children were able to come as well. It was a rather intimate wedding, only 30 people invited. In my opinion that is much better since we were able to spend time with all of our guests and really enjoy ourselves, rather than being rushed and not being able to talk to anyone for very long.
Sunday we went with his family to DC (first time they had been there) and we were very lucky… it was one of only four days a year that the South Lawn of the White House was open to the public for tours. (two days in Spring and two days in Fall). All in all it was a wonderful weekend.
We are hoping to go to Mexico for our one year anniversary and renew our vows in front of the rest of his family. I can hardly wait! Hopefully I will be able to speak Spanish fairly fluently by then.
