Middle: Ryan and Mary Kate
Bottom: Harry and Evan dancing with the little cousins - Will, Emily, Case, and EK.
We headed back to the house for a catered breakfast - delish and a fun time to meet the new family:) We got to hang out at the house with them until the afternoon reception, which was held downtown Fernandina in a swanky bar. There was dancing and more yummy food, and dancing, and dancing! I had to sit out because of my broken toe:( But, the kids has a BLAST! They boogied for most of the 3 hour reception! And sweet Ryan had his first dance with a girl other than his momma. Theresa's precious niece Mary Kate was kind enough to dance with this little boy who had developed a HUGE crush on her that day. She heads off to college this fall with a 4 year old's heart in her hands:)
We ended the night back at the house, Karen and family, our family, and the Caulers. While the whole day was rather surreal in so many ways, it was a joy to get to be a part of such a special day for my Dad and Theresa. They are making changes to the house, and I know that it will look significantly different when we return next, but that too is good for me. A new life deserves some fresh pages, and I'm excited for Dad and T and their future together!
