The day after Daniel's wedding, we spend some time as a family. First, we had a surprise shower in our hotel room for James' wife, Tammy, who is expecting a girl in March. I couldn't resist this little jeans outfit, since baby Audrey will have my genes(jeans).
Kara planned the food and games. Here my mom and I are head to head in a diaper changing contest. (It is a little harder blind-folded--good thing we don't use safety pins any more!)
Later we met over at Meg's parents house to see Daniel and Meg open some of their gifts. Here are 3 generations of women in our family--my mom, me, our four daughters and two daughter-in-laws.
Daniel and Meg had fun opening their gifts.
While Daniel and Meg had errands, the rest of us went to tour Dallas. Here's a great picture of us at Kennedy's memorial. Thanks to Craig for taking the picture. And thank you, Luke, (next to me in the sweatshirt) who kindly let his unprepared mother-in-law borrow his coat!

Thanks to my daughter, Kara, who took these pictures, and posted them on her blog. I am 'borrowing' them from her well-written account of the day.
AT THE TEMPLE
Here's the Dallas Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) where Daniel and Meg were married for eternity on a beautiful but windy January morning.
Here they first walk out the temple door as a married couple. You can see us waiting to greet them in the door's reflection.
