We were so excited to see the family after our long trip and there was no better place to meet up with everyone than South Bend Indiana for Tony’s baby sister Vicki’s wedding. We are so happy and excited for Vicki and Brett who actually met at Notre Dame during school! Everyone looked amazing, Joan, Tony’s mom looked fantastic as the mother of the bride. The wedding was held at the gorgeous chapel at Notre Dame. The ceremony was traditional Catholic and beautiful. All the Froude kids were absolutely adorable, especially Tony’s nieces and nephews--Samantha, Annika, Jimmy, and Gabe and we got quite a few good pictures of them.
Afterwards we all got down at the wedding reception! Let’s just say a lot of dancing ensued. Tony’s dad Jeff danced with Vicki to “Scotch and Soda” and Uncle Ed and Leann did some crazy disco moves! Ruby had fun catching up on all our adventures with the cousins Kara, Katie, Hilary and Kristin. We were so excited to see Aunt Pat, Jackie and Lillian too! Kira and Randi were pretty busy wrangling the kids! Luckily Kira had some help since her mom Joan was there too! Tony was in love with the groom’s cake that Brett picked out—it was in the form of a sub sandwich! Later on we had an after party at our hotel room where everyone got to catch up some more and we were so excited to finally empty our “toddler” and give everyone their “around the world” presents.
The next morning we all got together over brunch and popped open a bottle of Dom Perignon which Tony’s brother Jeffy and his wife Kira brought from France to celebrate the occasion! That was our first time tasting the stuff. . .no wonder it’s so expensive! We had to say our sad goodbyes to a bunch of the relatives who had to get back to their respective states and/or countries! CA, VA, NC TX, OK, France etc . . . . we wish we could have had more time with everyone but it was great while it lasted. We look forward to seeing everyone again around the holidays.
