Here we are in all our caravaning glory -- my parents' motor home with Ellie tagging along behind. Riding in a motor home is definitely better than being strapped down in a car. Sophie sure thought so, at least. The rumbling and shaking lulled her to sleep if she was lying down for more than 10 minutes. This mode of travel does have its drawbacks, though. Trying to take a shower while barreling down the freeway at 65 mph is an interesting experience. Luckily I came away unscathed, but I did get carsick while blow drying my hair.
The reception was nice, and a little different than we expected. At the open house in Idaho, we had a steady stream of people come and go for two hours. At this reception, everyone was there by 7:30 and stayed the whole time. I think the wedding line was only assembled for about 10 minutes before it fell apart. People would come in the door and see Devin and Andrea across the room and wonder, "What are they doing clear over there? Oh look, there's food," then wander over to a table and sit down.
Here's a pictures of Steve, Sophie, my mom and my sister, Hillie. Andrea's mom made all of the bridesmaid dresses and my sister didn't even try hers on until the day before the wedding. It fit her like a glove as you can see -- with no alterations needed. We try not to be jealous of her stick-like figure, but it's awfully hard sometimes.
And here's the clip I mentioned yesterday. It cracks me up how intense she was working, trying to throw tootsie rolls everywhere. It reminded me a lot of Hoppy (my family's pet rabbit) when he was trying to get carrots out of his bowl.
