The Bride and Groom


 Glyn and Jena and sweet, adorable, precious Haley....
Our First Grandchild.


 Owen, (son #2) Vicki, (Owen's #1 girl), Jena and Glyn


Barry, (my pastor husband,) the new family and me.

It was a fabulous weekend!  The wedding took place on a houseboat on Lake Powell, Arizona. The background is real, not painted. Perfect weather, perfect location, and perfect union of two families.  

Jokes and Jocularity abounded as we enjoyed the blending of the two families. 

(Sorry, I haven't posted photos of Jena's mom and dad as I forgot to ask permission from them). 

 The two families have so much in common and Vicki and Jena got on together like a house on fire. They have so much in common. Glyn and Owen have always been the best of friends. I think the laughter and fun from our houseboat must have echoed all around the canyon walls up and down the lake.
We spent two days on the lake, swimming and exploring. Who could have asked for anything more  -- or a happier weekend.

Thank you Lord, for making this event so happy, memorable and
JOYFUL !

I'm glad you explained that the scenery was real - it does look like a painted backdrop!

Glad all went well, they look very happy. Nice pictures, nice ‘J’, but who built those enormous sandcastles on the beach behind them?

Terra said...

Your entire family is beautiful and joyful and I like the idea of a houseboat wedding party. Incredible nature surrounding you.
