The reason ...
Dad and I get ready for the drive thru the Baraboo Hills to a gorgeous wedding!
Our granddaughter marries her best friend!
Camera - ready; proper clothing - ready; lots of tissues - more than ready!
Our son in law, Jim (regional salesman for Prairie farms), A/K/A Father of the bride; and our niece, Sheila Mast from Michigan. Her husband played the organ and Emmett Zimmerman sang.
DEREK - nephew (Jim's son)
Beautiful woodsy scenery all around the property!
My awesome of all awesomes - my great grandson Nolan! Isn't he a doll!
Mums and circus roses all around!

Wendy caught me taking photos! She has such a lovely profile! Bride Laurynda and she have been lifelong playpals and best of friends. Coming up the lane, is Shelly - my youngest and the best nurse in Milwaukee County!

DRAMA QUEEN! You bet - meet Aubrey, my sweetest darling and so far, my ONLY great granddaughter! She is her mom all over again! I bumped Verdon for my tissues - gotta use one!
