Well, September was quite busy.  Randy and I went to Springfield, Missouri for the Mother of All Reunions.  The reunion covers the decade of the 60’s and all 6 high schools.  We have gone before and enjoyed it this time as well.  We went to the Route 66 Car Museum, which opened in June of this year.  The cars are absolutely beautiful!

The GREEN one!

We also saw great friends and family:

Then we had visitors from Kansas City and Tulsa for the annual Bikes, Blues and BBQ.  I am pretty sure everyone had a great time!

But the big event was a trip to Tulsa for James’ friend’s wedding!  The night before the wedding, they hosted a barbeque at their ranch.  The ranch was beautiful, the weather delightful and everyone was ready to fete the bride and groom.

There were horses:

And of course, every ranch has a TANK!  No seriously, this tank was awesome and you could drive it.  We all posed for photos:

There were plenty of other things to do at the party.  There was a mechanical bull, a cart for kids that was pulled by the most adorable mini horses and of course, great music, great food and great drink.  Patrick captioned the following photo for me:

On Saturday, we got James out the door early for wedding photos.  The wedding was at Gilcrease Museum, in the garden, and the reception was held in the VISTA room.  Gilcrease is one of my favorites and makes a great wedding venue.

It was definitely a wedding we will remember.  Hard to believe that James has friends that are old enough to marry!  Best wishes to Tom and Riley.  Thank you so much for having us at the celebrations.

Let me know what is going on in your world.

    It’s kinda a big deal I mean I was just imagining you going to your closet to find a dress- was there one already in there? Hahaha

    You all look fabulous!! I love polka dots and your dress is just perfect, Cathy. James looks so handsome in a suit and so does Randy. Randy has that “I’m happy with the world because I’m retired” look. What a lovely wedding. I really like the bride’s dress. Simple, but so beautiful.
