Party On!

June is flying by and it doesn't give a hoot that I'm running at full speed to keep up! Work has been up and down and getting the yard and garden ready is also a full time job! But somehow Jack and I manage to "get'r done!"  To add to the hustle and bustle we took time to celebrate with my oldest son, Jack, and his lovely bride Evelyn,  at an outdoor reception.  You can tell it wasn't hosted by us because the weather was perfect! Even though the temps were in the 80's the place was on a small lake and the breeze and shade made it so comfortable.  The folks that own the property are friends of Jack and Evelyn and the wife works with them at the hospital.  They tap trees for maple syrup and it's just a beautiful place!
This was the area with a tent and outdoor games.  Very relaxed and fun time for everyone, even little kiddos.
The lake was gorgeous!
I think Cameron would have loved to jump in!

I was so happy my Mom and my sister made it from Chicago. Mom did really great!
She was so pleased to see Phil and Jordan.
Hugs for the happy couple.
Now this is a motley crew!
The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious but there was another cake...
Evelyn's birthday was yesterday too and this was her cake!
The table decorations were so cute and these little jars of jam had a little note on the top that said "Spread the love"...inspired by a 94 yr old gentleman who retired from Smucker's.  He gave Jackie the idea. Jackie takes out his garbage every week and Evelyn cleans his home for him. He couldn't make it yesterday but I sure loved his idea! Just as a side note, Smuckers is made in Orrville, Ohio, not too far from  here!
This was the entrance to the pretty!
We wish you a very "Happily Ever After"

Congrats you two! Love you!

Looked like fun! Your mom is amazing! She is like the Energizer Bunny; she takes a licking, but she keeps no ticking. I hope she ticks for many more years!!

Again wishing your son and his bride so many wonderful years together!

I love your header. My asiatic lilies still haven't bloomed yet but they are all budded.

Take care and stay cool.
