I began the day with a full breakfast buffet in the Tavern. I got up early so I could still order individual items off the menu but I was hungry so I decided to go for the whole enchilada. Well not really, they didn't serve Mexican food. But I did have a waffle and a bagel and some fruit and I took a box of fruit loops for later. Then I took a paper from the lobby that I think was complimentary and went and sat in the gazebo in the garden to read a bit. It was very nice out there and for some of it I had some music because they were checking the sound system for a wedding that was going to be out there.
Then I went back to the room and since the lady hadn't cleaned it yet, I decided it was best if I went out to do my work. So, I went to Barnes and Nobles
But yes I got a good amount of work done. Then I went to Target and picked up some necessities and snacks in case my family was famished when they arrived to see me. And then I got some Panera mac and cheese and went back to my hotel. Now I have been gone an additional 2 hours after the 1 hour I was away for breakfast. But my room was still not clean. So I sat there and watched that movie about the football player who finds out he has a daughter and kind of coded a bit. I also got my hair and face all ready for the events of the evening. Then I got to see the beginning of I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry which looked funny. This is when the lady finally came and begrudgingly cleaned the room. Then mom and dad called and I went to meet them at Panera where they had lunch and I had a little snack.
Now it was time to get in to full wedding preparation mode
The reception was very nice. It was beautiful and the food was delicious. I very much enjoyed seeing friends and other people I had not seen in a long time. The speeches of the families and friends of the couple were very touching. The band was very good, too. I was sad when I realized they were done and I didn't dance as much as I should have. I did dance once with one of my dad's student's, Aaron I believe his name is. I believe he enjoyed dancing with my mom more but she really gets in to it so I can understand if he did.
It was a beautiful night. I am so happy for Christine and Matt and wish them the best for their marriage! However, it was a late night so the details are slipping from my mind the longer I am awake.
Tomorrow, we will attend a brunch with the family. I am not sure if Christine and Matt will be there but it is possible. Personally I think that is a little awkward but some people do that so that's cool. The rest of the plans for tomorrow are yet to be decided but I assume I will be spending lots of time with my family. Oh yes, Becky's boyfriend Jake is flying in so we are hanging out with him. Isn't that a lovely father's day present? But I think it will be fun.
Oh yes, one more thing. I do have some pictures of this event but I will upload them later possibly tomorrow. I also should try to get some of mom's pictures because they are better and she actually went to the ceremony so I could pretend I was there too.
