The kids & friends with the groom before the ceremony.
James and Liz, cutting the cake with his fire ax. (He is a fireman!) He said the guys at the firehouse polished it for over an hour, so it was clean enough to eat off of!
Some of the Maryland friends, together again!
The reception was at a club overlooking the city, which was hopping because of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, as well as those (including President Clinton) who were coming to pay their respects to former Governor Ann Richards who was lying in state in the capitol building. (I'm sure ole Bill stopped to listen to a few of the bands before he left the city...Maybe he even brought his sax!)
Before we left Austin, we went to the Texas History Museum (since we're studying Texas History this year, and what kind of homeschooler would I be???) and we went to watch the bats under the Congress Ave. bridge .
We made it home just in time for another fun week of Awana, and it's been a busy two days of school so far!
