Friday in the Hill Country

We left our house early on Friday morning to drive to a wedding weekend for our friends Korey and Jenn.  They have been dating for over 10 years.  We were honored to be a part of their wedding.

I loved every minute of the scenery...It was breathtakingly beautiful!

I love this picture of Gary and the kids.

It was a fun weekend celebrating two lives becoming one. 

But it was also a sad time for Gary.  One of his high school friends died in his sleep on Friday.  I can remember the two of them playing soccer together every Sunday morning when we first started dating.  I have lots of memories of all of us hanging out together.  It is so sad, this young man died.  It has really made Gary and I stop and appreciate what we have.

Layla and Hayden loved the little fountain and pond. 
Hayden could have stood there and watched the fish for hours.

I love these two munchkins.  Can you tell Hayden is saying cheeeeese?

The rehearsal dinner was held at a winery.  It was very pretty and there was plenty of space for the kids to run!  They had been cooped up in the car all day, so running was good for them.

I loved the huge open covered patio.  It was so quint and perfect for a rustic country rehearsal dinner.
The food was amazing, you know me...I love good food!

The kids stayed up WAY past their bedtimes.  It was so much fun, but they got so tired.  

We asked the kids their favorite part of the day and they both said they loved seeing the fish!

Gary and I had a great time visiting with tons of people we haven't seen in years. 
I will post more pictures soon.  Layla was such a pretty flower girl!

Happy Tuesday!

So sad about Gary's friend. What a shock that must have been. Is Gary doing OK?
The kids looked adorable (and you looked beautiful) and I am cracking up that the fish were the best part of their day.
