My son, Mark, got married this past weekend, so I flew back to Washington DC for the wedding, and to go see my father in Pennsylvania. My daughter and her family also flew in, so be prepared for some shamelessly-cheesy-grandkid-pictures.
The rehearsal dinner on Saturday was a hit with Mara. She loves pasta - must take after her grandma...
On Sunday I brought my father down to my niece's house so he could spend some time with his great grandkids before the wedding.
Arriving at the wedding - Mara was a flower girl, and Jonathan wore his tux. In the background are my great-nephews, Adam, Anthony, and Andrew.
The wedding took place on the Spirit of Washington, a boat on the Potomac River. It was supposed to take place on the deck, but since the temperature was about 45 degrees, it was moved indoors.
After the ceremony, Mark and Carisa braved the cold to get some pictures on the deck with the wedding party.

The reception and dinner were back indoors.
The cutting of the cake went well, up until this point, when the smushing occurred.
Then there was the "carrying over the threshhold" part. No, he didn't drop her...
Bailey and Mara made adorable flower girls. Since Mara is an old hand at it, she showed Bailey the ropes.
After dinner, there was time for pictures. Since I hardly ever see my two kids, Mark and Corrie, together, I had to have one of them.
And one of the 4 generations. (You'd think that since my father is a photographer, he would learn how to smile...)
The music was not really my kind of dance music, but it was perfect for Jonathan to show off his breakdancing.
