Scenes From the Weekend - and Today

We had the pleasure of attending the wedding of the daughter of our friends this past weekend.  The new Mr. & Mrs. L are an adorable couple!  The wedding and reception were both touching and elegant. The mother of the bride knows how to organize a beautiful event.   Some of us think she should begin a new career as a wedding planner!

On a completely different note - we ventured out to an area flea market on Sunday.  To be honest, flea markets aren't really my "thing".  My father-in-law is visiting this week and helping us out on a few little projects so we were happy to give him a break and explore "The Most Awesome Flea Market in the World"!
I tried to take a few photos of some of the more interesting junk booths, but some of the vendors were looking at me strangely, so these are all I got. 
This booth had quite a collection of well loved Tonka trucks and tractors.

There were more vendors inside than out. At least it was a nice breezy fall day for wandering around the grounds but we actually came away without purchasing anything.  But I think the guys enjoying poking around the booths and doing a little reminiscing.

One of the projects my FIL is working on is the (faux) rock on the bar front in the basement.  I'll post a photo when it's complete.  Today he had help from a little great grandson! Just carrying on the family tradition of being another talented craftsman!

That last picture is adorable! Looks like you've had a good weekend. I enjoy poking around at flea markets, but really -- who needs more junk? I have enough of my own LOL!

I've gotten strange looks sometimes too when I'm taking pictures and it intimidates me and I stop. Then later I wonder why I stopped and didn't just think what the heck and continue in spite of the looks.
