Val’s dress was beautiful. At one point Natty in her flower girl dress threw herself stomach-down on the grass and started trying to swim and Samuel spat up all over his little bowtie. And because part of the hem of Auntie Joan’ dress ripped, we stapled it together during the pictures.
The Calla Lillies in the ballroom looked exceptionally exotic. We got Auntie Joan into dancing to rap music. Marcus danced with Sister Joanne as well as Phyllis, who would like it if we would come and do dance lessons with her sometime. Aaron’s grandfather, Marv almost broke my foot when we danced together.
No one was out-of-control drunk, but I would be the first to admit that we were definitely pushing the envelope.
