I guess it's time to bring this busy weekend to a close. My post will mostly be of pictures of our weekend.
Saturday we went down to Bloomington to attend the wedding of Michael Palen and Samantha Carber, who is now Samantha Palen!! :) Congratulations to the newlyweds!! The wedding was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous, and it was a lot of fun!

Yummy cake! It was red velvet and delicious!
It didn't take long for my flip flops to come on
Probably because I was wearing my pointy toe heals. Sorry they are a bit dirty... :)
