Riley and Connor were asked by their daycare teacher to be the flower girl and ring bearer for her wedding. She is one of the kids' (and ours) favorite people so there was no way we could say no. It was a beautiful wedding and we were honored to celebrate with the happy couple
After the wedding, we continued our drive to Galway, where the kids got to ride the kayak, go fishing, visit a zoo, and eat way more pie and ice cream than they should.
We had so much time out there that we were even able to drive some more and visit Vermont, where the kids got to visit a farm that was very hands-on, which they just loved.
But the main purpose of this trip was to celebrate the life of Eric's grandpa-- Walter Nial. He was one of my favorite people I've ver been blessed enough to know. A lot of family and friends came out to share wonderful stories of him. We cooked out, had laughs, and it was exactly how he would have wanted his family to remember his life.
