My niece's wedding

I went to my niece Madigan's wedding back on September 22nd in Des Moines, Iowa and had a wonderful time with my family, including my father who was Skyped in from his home in Florida for the reception after the ceremony.  I didn't have any formal part to play, although I did pitch in to help after I checked in at the hotel downtown.

First, I headed straight to the reception venue, which was the Triple-A baseball park just south of downtown.  My sisters Andrea (mother of the bride), April and my niece Jamie were busy doing flower arrangements and got me to help even though I had no experience with it.  Which I did o.k., I was told.
