The first weekend in October found us on the road again- this time headed to Chicago for a very special event. Scott's only brother Tony, was getting married. We left Thursday morning- we set out on time :), picked up Elizabeth and headed to Omaha were we had reserved a rental car for the trip. This was probably one of the best ideas we have had. Besides getting a very good rental rate, we had a larger car, nicer car, and more fuel efficient. It was a real blessing. We had managed to secure Elizabeth's help on the trip by the idea that we could meet her good friend Ali (who lives about 2 hours from Chicago) and Elizabeth could spend the visit at the Klahns while we were in Chicago. It worked out great a was a huge blessing to have someone else to ride in the back seat with the boys. If I sat back there too long I started to go stir crazy! :)
Scott's grandparents had not seen Paul since he was 6 weeks old, and obviously not yet met Marcus, so it was wonderful to stay with them through the weekend. (Thank you so much!) Thursday night after we arrived we ate and headed out to go bowling with the family. Bowling is definitely an Anson talent and hobby. While I enjoy the sport, my wrist does not- so I chose to watch- a good call as there was some good bowlers competing and I would have been left in the dust! :) It was great to have some fun together before all the "wedding stuff".
Friday Scott took the boys and me "around town"- we stopped by the company were he used to work and ate lunch at the deli he bought his lunch at for years. It was a lot of fun to finally put a face to the people he has talked about. Of course everyone was so tickled to see him and meet me and the boys- that was a nice feeling.
Friday night was rehearsal and Saturday the wedding. It was a little hard on the boys as napping was really messed up- Paul was a wreck through the wedding, but we had a good time and were so honored to be included. Congratulations again to Tony and Lisa! It was wonderful to see all our "Illinois family" we miss you and love you!
We arrived home around 8pm Sunday night, tired and ready for home- but so glad we went. We can't wait to see family again at the holidays!
It must be an Anson thing... :)
I am not sure who is helping who..?
Scott's cousin Keith and girlfriend Laura
I think this was a discussion of how the Cubs were playing
There is a reason they call him the "Best Man" :) He is sooo handsome!
The whole wedding party
Lisa's son Jeremy- a very dashing ring bearer
