I'm glad you liked them. It was a beautiful day and went much smoother than the actual wedding day did!

That's great! I know if a CM came up to me and told me I had a phone call, I'd be, "Oh, carp. Who's in the hospital?"

I am not a foodie so I found this very gross! Dale loved it though!
Looks good to me, too.

The famed Le Cellier filet. He loved it and it was his favorite F&W item.
I can imagine!

mmmm.... filet.

Nice!

I do. I always tried to enjoy whatever age/stage Caitlin was at because I knew it wouldn't last too long.

Nice pic of the two of you, too.

Thank you

I'll have to try that next time

You're one up on me. I've never been anywhere inside China at all.



Yay, us!

Absolutely!

That's cool. Are they exact size reproductions?

I don't think so they are kind of short.

You said what?!?!? I read Mandarin and that's a terrible insult!


According to the internet that is "goodbye" in Chinese. Of course you can't trust everything you read on the internet...





Okay, I don't read (or speak) Mandarin and I have no idea what that says... but you were worried there for a second, weren't ya?



He sure looks happy!

Yea, it doesn't take much

That's great! I know if a CM came up to me and told me I had a phone call, I'd be, "Oh, carp. Who's in the hospital?"



Looks good to me, too.

Yuck!

Oh my goodness, Dawn! You food rebel, you!

We've been together 28 years so we're pretty honest

All caught up!

We were at Epcot on F&W preview day too! I was so excited to see the booths open, and made a decent dent in my quest to eat around the world. I agree that is was nice that is wasn't crowded, so much different than the rest of the week!

Congrats to your daughter on her wedding, she made a beautiful bride!
