July was spent watching some of the 7 year old World Series in Ringgold Georgia and then Celebrating Candace and Bradley's Big day!!
First the World Series.. We had so. much. fun.!!!! I know to most this doesn't make since, Brett and I don't have any children so why would we want to spend our only time off in the summer watching some other children play ball in the hot summer heat.. Because we love it!!! We've been lucky enough to get to know several of these families , and Brett has even coached some of these boys on a basketball team last winter. These kids, and their parents are so much fun! Luckily the Boykins don't mind us following them around! We love watching Andrew play ball, and have been doing it for several years now, and it seems as every year passes we get more and more in to it!! The time that we were there was spent going to the ball park and spending time at the hotel. It was like a great big tail gate while we were there, and if you know Brett and I, you know that is right up our alley!! Thank you to the Boykins for including us as your family on this trip.
Candace and Bradley's wedding... Was fabulous!! The whole weekend was great, the Bridesmaid luncheon was at the University Club and the Rehearsal dinner was at the Southern House and Garden near Fosters. It was such a fun day filled with good friends and family. The Wedding day was great as well!! The wedding was at Northport Baptist, with the reception at our church, University Church of Christ. Candace was absolutely.GORGEOUS!!! Just stunning!! There are no other words!!!! Brett and I both were honored to be in the wedding to share such a fun and special day. The wedding was just beautiful, Julie, (Candace's mom, Brett's Aunt) did an amazing job decorating both churches, major props to her!! We were so happy and excited to see Candace and Bradley get married, Candace- although Brett's cousin, became such a great friend to me!!! She was a friend put in my life when I needed one the most, and she helped me get through some of my toughest times.. We both learned alot from each other and grew so much!!! Brett and Bradley had many of their engineering classes together and spent many nights with late night studying!! Now Brett and I are crossing our fingers and toes, and praying that Bradley can get a great job here in town so they can stay in Tuscaloosa ;););)
-- Congratulations Candace and Bradley, we love y'all!!!!
