Texas Wedding

Here are a few photos from the Moberly/Collins wedding, October 15, 2011. We were lucky to be able to witness this lovely ceremony. We really appreciated the short service so the kids were able to behave and not cause a rukus. It was sunny and warm, and we were in the shade of the golf course near the club house. Amy looked stunning and as we discussed the kids' favorite parts of our trip Dru said she liked Amy's sparkly dress the best. As for me, I said I loved seeing how truly happy Amy was and is. It makes me tear up just thinking about it. Congrats to you, Amy & Jeff!

Trinity Park Train

We traveled together to Texas in mid October for my cousin Amy's wedding. We had some free time to do some things with the kids. We convinced Grandma Sue, Grandma Lois, Heather and Reed to go to Trinity Park in Ft. Worth with us. There we took a ride on the Forest Park Miniature Train. The train was driven by a small locomotive and had open seating. The ride took us along the Trinity River, over and under bridges and took about 40 minutes. It was a beautiful day and was a great way to see some more of Ft. Worth and the kids really enjoyed it.

Millner Heritage Vineyard & Winery

My parents, sister, brother-in-law, Julie and I have started a tradition of doing things for Christmas instead of giving things. On a sunny fall Sunday Heather and Jason surprised us by taking all of us to the Millner Heritage Vineyard & Winery. There was wine tastings, food, dancing, grape stomping, wood workers, vendors and more. My parents talked the owner, Jon Millner, and discussed their heritage for awhile. It was a fun time and if you're ever out in central MN you should stop in!
