If I'm being honest I thought this was a great idea ahead of time but the week of I thought it was a terrible idea because of the amount of work that was having to go into it and the amount of stress that my mom (and, in turn, my dad) were under to make sure everything was done. We were absolutely exhausted from the week of prep and the previous two days festivities. Luckily it wasn't scheduled until noon on Saturday and as it got under way I am so glad that we ended up doing it. I was able to sit and talk with people I hadn't had a chance to visit with at the reception and it was so relaxed and nice.
About 60 people or so came by at some point in the afternoon to eat sandwiches and have some beer (as if we hadn't had enough to eat and drink the night before!) By the end of the afternoon we broke out the champagne that was supposed to be used for the champagne toast at the reception but was forgotten, and those left sat in a big circle and just hung out. It was a lot of fun.
Olivia wasn't quite sure about Simon
Little Eddie joined in the party too
Amanda doesn't drink so of course I thought this would be a funny shot
I can only imagine what he is telling her here.
We had Ryan make painkillers. They are awesome!
This is going to be the final part in the wedding posts series - unless I feel like doing a honeymoon post - but Erin broke their camera on the second day of the trip and they haven't developed their disposable cameras yet. You never can tell though!
