My oldest boy got married to the most wonderful girl! I was SO happy for them both. It was very emotional to see him so grown up - a man. I was overwhelmed with happiness, nostalgia, sorrow for whats over, and excitement of what is ahead. It was a lot to process, but yet so so good.

After a tornado warning that sent us into the inner-rooms of the venue, we got a few more dances all in for the brave who dared to stay.
Last dance before they left!

Their last dance
At the end of the night, we all ran out into the down-pouring rain and sent them on their way while waving sparklers. Aliah, already in her PJs, just stood at the door - she wasn't getting wet! (Notice she still has her flowers! too cute)
Heres several videos of the night. My favorite is of the mother/son dance. It still touches my heart. My Boy. (Video #5)
