Friday was spent setting up for the Rehearsal Dinner and welcoming family as they arrived for the wedding! On Thursday my sister Robin was flying into Charlotte on standby but got bumped in Atlanta. Both of her future opportunities to get out were not looking good at all. Wally encouraged her to rent a car and drive the three hours to us and she did. Kenny and Wes rode the motorcycles out to meet Robin and escort her through the back roads…at 1:30 in the morning! Much later in the morning, Wally went with Robin to the Charlotte airport and collected her luggage while the boys helped me set up. Ben and Andrea hit town about 12:3o and we all met up at the Chickfil-a. Wally’s Mom and Uncle Harold and Aunt Lucy also rolled into Chickfil-a. It was quite a family reunion!
The dinner was delicious…catered by Mr. Dallas, who also heads up the school cafeteria at Ambassador. We had tri-tip steak with raspberry BBQ sauce…Mr. Dallas’ specialty! We also had crème brulee' cheesecake for dessert. Another specialty!!
