Joan and Bob Iwanowski graciously invited everyone at the wedding who would like to come to gather at their home today. Most of the Boyd family went down to David's older brother Roger's in Frederick Maryland but a number of us took them up on their offer.
Joan had breakfast pastries, coffee, bagels and mimosas along with made to order eggs for anyone who wanted them.
People came and went, chatted and ate. Those in the know were able to swim in the salt water pool and said it was a wonderful 80 degrees. I was in total relax mode and didn’t even bring my camera down to the pool so many thanks to Carrie’s friends Allegra Deucher and Emma Daisy for sending me these photographs.

Those of us from out of town hadn’t brought swimming suits so we lounged around the pool.

Matt provided lovely guitar music for us again today, lovely. You can see him with the ball cap in the background. He even brought an extra guitar so that Narhol, in front of Matt, could also play.
Are these the same two people who got married yesterday?
The little girl with the towel around her and the boy with a beer and a rubber pool toy?
David wasn’t feeling well and took a nap right after these pictures were taken. Not wanting a repeat of our problems in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, which many of you will remember, we headed out early.
We had thought we would stop by Roger’s on our way home to see the family but I didn't think David really was up to it so we unfortunately had to miss seeing more of Roger, Carol, Karissa, Olivia, Justin, Ashley, Brian and Aunt Bunny. We are really sorry to have missed time with them all.
Still it was a wonderful relaxing gathering thanks to Joan and Bob. I only wish I’d brought my suit or at least not cleaned out the back of Ruby to be able to put gifts and luggage on the rear seat. I keep a swimming suit there with the kayak gear at all times, Darn!
The newlyweds leave for their honeymoon in Jamaica in the morning so this was our last chance to visit with them, wish them every happiness and say good-bye. (IMYWYG)
David is still not feeling well and sleeps most of the day. I take the opportunity to go straight to the Hair Cuttery where they give me back the short cut I wish I’d had for the wedding so I would have looked less like Carrie’s Grandmother and more like her Mother. The 40’s Victory Roll hairstyle was really lovely, my hair is wonderful in that it will do about anything, but I thought it was quite aging with my gray hair. I like this better.
If you haven’t seen the wedding post which I was forced to do on straight Blogger you can find it here. This post was done in LiveWriter to Blogger with thanks to those who fixed the problems. I hope it’s a permanent fix. It sure was easier to do.
