And many other pictures from our extended holiday!
edited at january 17th. 2005
We came five days earlier to California for a couple reasons.
The most important being to get to spend some extra time with Linda
and Jeff before everyone came. This proofed very nice and allowed
Thomas to get used to the time change- although I think he handled
it better than we did!
came in Mom, Al, Dad, Nancy and Chris of course with Lyndesy and
Kaelyn as well as friends and family from Jeff. We all met at Linda
and Jeff's by the beach and then headed for the desert in a possession
of rent a cars and SUV's!
wedding itself and the day before was just brilliant. It was a perfect
location, wine country in the hills of the desert. Coupled with
great organization, loads of family and I guess the happy hour at
the hotel did not harm anyone either! The outdoor wedding at a winery
was just perfect and very nice. A fitting, lovely way for my little
sister to tie the knot!
that we headed with many family members to see the sights of Southern
California. Perhaps seeing one too many theme parks along the way,
but once again we all enjoyed it. We find it very nice to see everyone
together, which of course is rare when all live literally all over
God's Grand Creation. Naturally it was also very nice to meet Jeffs
Bianca, Thomas sand I headed to Oma Carol's and Opa Al's to stay
in New Hampshire and enjoy them at their houses. Oma Carol even
threw a birthday party for the excited Thomas! Enjoy the pictures
and hope to hear from you all soon! Love, David, Bianca and Thomas.
Oma Anky and Opa Ger also flew over from Holland to see us all,
which made it yet another party!
closing- We wish Linda and Jeff all the best and pray that they
will live long and happily, with God's blessing.
