Congratulations, Mark and Kate!
Mark has been a good friend of ours for many years now. He played darts with Michael for a few years (back before Tucker)and they have stayed friends through the years. He's a really great guy but one of those people that you just never think will settle down! Well, that was until Kate came along! Two years later they bought a house and he proposed in December!
Yesterday was the wedding in Chicopee, MA. We dropped Tucker off at my mom's and picked up Jeff on our way! We arrived at the hotel around 3 (the wedding was at 4) so we changed and went to Denny's (figuring we wouldn't be eating until later.) While we were eating, a guy in a power wheelchair went by which was somewhat amusing considering we're talking a four-lane highway, with strip malls, hotels, etc on both sides. Well about 15 minutes later, one of us glanced out and saw him again with a plant this time! We could not stop laughing and had to take this picture when we drove by him (there wasn't any traffic so I could slow down for Michael to take the picture)
Once we calmed down enough to keep going, we did make it to the ceremony. However, Kate was about to go down the aisle as we pulled in. Needless to say, we didn't make it; she got to the altar just as we came in. It was a beautiful ceremony though. From there we headed over to the reception and actually stayed until 11:45 pm. We're usually in bed around 9:30, 10 at the latest! We had a great time dancing! I hope this doesn't make me sound like a bad mom but it was so much fun to just be the two of us and have fun and laugh! Maybe we need to get out more together!
