Before Luke and I depart on our European Adventure, I wanted to give a brief recap of the wonderful time I had this past weekend in Wisconsin.
I arrived in Appleton very late on Friday evening, despite the fact that my flight was supposed to arrive at 1p. Factor in a few tornado warnings, flash floods, and cancelled flights, and you have my journey home. My dad came to my rescue (how appropriate for Father's Day) by driving all the way to Chicago to pick me up, and we made it home safely.
Unfortunately, my luggage did not make it, so Saturday morning came very early, as I had to do some quick shopping before my brother's fiance, Nelle's bridal shower. We had a lovely day! Lots of yummy food and good conversation.
On Sunday, we celebrated two occasions: Father's Day and my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary! It was such a joyous day!! I couldn't have asked for better company: my entire family on my mom's side was able to attend. We got some great pics, thanks to my uncle Gil.

Congrats to the happy couple! My grandparents celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary :)
