Then the rest of our Texas contingent arrived and we went for lunch at Buzzard Billy's--in keeping with the zoo theme, they said. A quick trip back to the campground to shower and change (no naps for these old bones) and back through rush hour traffic to the zoo for rehearsal.
It is a lovely setting, especially if the weather holds. One of the best moments was when the bride was brought in, the bridesmaids had all donned mustaches. Butch and I performed our parts (being escorted in by Nick) flawlessly. We finished the evening with the rehearsal dinner and enjoyed spending time with Jill's parents, the Ellers.
This morning, a break from the whirlwind and building anticipation. My coffee pot is full and there's a nice apple bread waiting for breakfast.
