lazy day updates

 It's the 4th of July today - Happy Independence Day! This year we're just playing it lazy. It's raining and it looks as though it's going to keep raining. It's a good day to do inside things like watch some tv, nap, quilt, and update my blog!

No this isn't our dog. This is Maggie my brother-in-laws dog. She obviously isn't a morning dog. I took this pic (when we were in Wisconsin for my nephews wedding) and it was about 7:00 am. She is usually quite peppy but this was as active as she was going to get at 7:00am.

This is a pic of me, my BIL and my nephews on my DH's side. You can see Maggie is awake now.

Here is my nephew that got married (my late brothers son) and his bride to be before the wedding...

 They are such an adorable couple and I'm sure they will have a lifetime of happiness together. My brother would be very happy with Logan's choice, she is a sweetie.
Here's a pic of the wedding. It was raining right before the ceremony and then it stopped, and then it started up again right after, and then pretty much rained the rest of the day and evening. However- it didn't put a damper on the day. The wedding was lovely and the reception was wonderful. It was held at a hall/restaurant that is well known for receptions and they have a huge old brass bell above the staircase that they ring for the bride and groom.

This is a pic of my niece dancing against her will LOL. She doesn't like to dance but she had to when the bridal party had their dance.  The bride and groom danced almost every single dance :)
Unfortunately the flash on my camera stopped working - oh-oh low battery.
Here are the newlyweds when they made a stop at our place on their way to Key West for their honeymoon.

Well, if I am going to get that nap in I better get going......
A new giveaway is in the works for everyone and I hope to get it up and going within the week.....If everything pans out it promises to be one you don't want to miss.
Enjoy the holiday!

OMG, He looks exactly like his Dad! I am sure your family misses him a lot. It looks like it was a lovely wedding! We were just in Wisc the end of June for my niece's wedding. Nothing like those Wisc weddings! Take Care, Sue
