OK. They weren’t baby back ribs, but they were delicious!

After the wedding we stayed over at Dallas’ aunt’s (conveniently vacationing in Hawaii!) house in Bartlett. The next morning Danny got up really early, went grocery shopping and started smoking the ribs. About 4 hours later we feasted like kings!

Maybe it was just me but the suburbs felt like they were about 10-15 degrees hotter than the city. Also, the heat from the grill.. sitting on the deck.. whew!

Re the hydrant and sign, I’d never seen hydrants marked like this before. Lori said it was for the winter so the plows don’t plow over the hydrants. If that’s so then why don’t hydrants everywhere have signs?

I imagine that there are a lot of things to stress about when planning a wedding, especially when planning an outdoor wedding at your parents’ house. Will the weather hold up? Will the caterer arrive on time? Will there be enough food? Have we got enough beer? Is there enough space to dance? Will people like the music? And on and on. One thing you probably don’t even think about is “What if I’m so physically sick that I can’t participate in the ceremonies?” And unfortch that’s what happened to both Jen and Matt on their wedding.

All of the time before dinner and at dinner Jen & Matt were both sick inside the house. Matt made it out to talk to guests a bit but Jen was too sick. The ceremony that followed dinner was postponed until they were able to do it. I think they started to feel better later on and at night even danced, but still. I felt so horrible for them! The stomach flu on your wedding day. That has to be one of the worst things ever!
