My Handsome Son
Ewan did his first wedding performance as a ring bearer this morning. It started off rocky but he did a great job. For whatever reason he had an aversion to the tuxedo and DID NOT want to put it on. This was about 30 minutes before the wedding started. We were a bit worried that he wouldn't have a change in his attitude. We wrestled the little gator and got the suit on and then all was well. Go figure. He walked down the aisle just like he was supposed to and sat (mostly) still and was quiet during the ceremony. We were very proud. He even went to bed late and still managed to do everything with smiles (minus the putting the suit on tactic). The wedding was at Northwest Bible Church and the reception was at the Dallas Museum of Art. David and Linh were in a happy bliss to be finally tying the knot. It was a very nice service. Congratulations to David and Linh (who are heading off to Paris--very romantic!)!
As Ewan walked down the aisle I got the biggest tears in my eyes because all I could think about was how one day this little boy would be walking down an aisle to get married so some beautiful girl. Sigh.
This was taken at the reception and Jon and Ewan were doing "Cheers". Ewan looked so cultured standing there in his tuxedo, drinking his special cranberry lemonade, and eating hors' d'ouvres. It was a special moment!
It isn't the best picture of Ewan from the day but Jon and I look pretty good! Thanks Kim for letting me borrow the shirt.
We had a lot of fun today--Mimi watched Isaac because we quickly figured out at the rehearsal dinner that having Isaac at the wedding was NOT going to be easy and was going to be very stressful. Thank you Mimi!
We got to catch up with our friend Tony who recently moved back to Texas. We were really hoping Tony and his girlfriend, Judy, would move back to Dallas but landed jobs in Houston. They are both doctors and two of the sweetest and kindest people we know. It was nice to see him again. Sadly, Judy was on call but hopefully we will see them again soon.
