Weekend of Tears - Good & Bad

Hi! How was your weekend? I know mine was busy! This weekend, I drove to Hill City, KS to see my best friend from college get married! She's just the sweetest and I'm so happy she's finally found her Mr. Right!! It took us 4+ hours to get there and it was hot! Her wedding was outside and it was over 90 degrees!! It was a wonderful ceremony and didn't seem to last very long. Afterwards, the reception was held at one of the fairgrounds building. There was great food, dancing and tons of fun! They even had their own firework show - how cool is that? I guess it's one of the benefits of living in a small town! Here's a great picture of Kari and I at the reception - of course, by this time my make up had all but melted away ...

One of Abby's favorite things to do is dance so when the music started playing we were right out there dancing away -

We didn't see her too much after this as she wanted to dance alone and play with her "new" friends, lol!

We were going to stay all night in Hill City and drive back today but I got some bad news about my grandmother. Unfortunately, I didn't make it back before she passed away. I'm very sad to see my grandmother go but she has dealt with Alzheimer's for almost 10 years and this last month has been very difficult. I'm thankful that I just saw her a little over a week ago and got some pictures and was able to talk with her. I know she is in a better place and grandpa is so happy to see her after 30 years - there is definitely a party going on in Heaven today!

I couldn't get in to leave you a comment the other day because my internet access was acting up. I am so sorry about your loss Michelle!! You are right though, there is no more suffering for her.
