Last weekend was hectic (and a blast) to say the least. We had the privilege of being invited to a few very important events in our friends lives. I kicked off the weekend by attending Halley's bachelorette party in Washington, D.C. Thursday.
On Friday morning we drove to The Bellevue in Philadelphia, PA to attend The Marine Corps Sholarship Foundation Ball. Our evening included many speakers (one of whom was General Zinni), performances by the Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, dinner and dancing. James' lifelong friend and mentor, Bobby, was the chairmen of the event. He did an excellent job! We were honored to be involved in helping him support such a great cause and thankful to get to spend time with him and his family. A few pictures from the event can be found here.
The next morning we woke up early to make the six hour drive from Philadelphia, PA to Lexington, VA to attend Alex and Halley's wedding at House Mountain Inn. The venue was absolutely perfect! The (relocated) ceremony took place in front of a fireplace under a pavilion in the pouring rain. Halley made a stunning bride and we could not be happier for the two of them.
Due to the craziness of last weekend, we decided to make this weekend a lot more low-key. We had one of James' best friends from high school, Sam, visiting and we spent the weekend cooking out with friends and doing some much needed gardening work in our backyard.
