Weekend Travels

Both of G's sweet Grandmas live in nursing homes and were unable to come to our wedding.  We had decided a few months ago that we would dress in our wedding finery and go visit them so they could still see us all dolled up. This past weekend was Grandma Boyce's turn so we headed up to North Bay Friday night and on Saturday we went over with Charlene and her cousin for a visit.  I think that Grandma really enjoyed seeing us dressed up and it was a bit hit for some of the other people in the home as well.

She noted "Garret you forgot to shave for your wedding". When he asked if she liked it she was very honest and said "yes....and no" We had a good chuckle with her about that.

On our way home we kept up our Walsh ritual of hitting up Weber's.  Honestly we could have just had breakfast and G will insist we stop!  We took a photo because I think this will be our last visit before they close for the season.  (Nerd Alert:  I think that I could make an entire scrapbook just of the Weber's photos we take every year...scary)

An additional highlight this weekend was while we were hanging out on Sunday night our wedding photographer sent us a few photos!  He is still processing and editing them, but he knew how excited I was so he emailed us a little preview.  I CANNOT wait to see the rest.  We were quite fortunate to have a lot of people taking photos that day so we get to have several different views on all the events.  Sigh....I can't believe it was nearly a month ago!

So all in all it was a lovely, busy, family and friend filled weekend!
