Thursday, November 10
Now that I’ve given you a sampling of wedding pictures, (and we are home in Pennsylvania) I will go back to the day of our arrival in Maine.
It was early (5 am) on Thursday when we stopped to pick up Elizabeth’s brother Josiah who lives about 45 minutes from our place – and on our route to Maine.
We stopped for fuel and breakfast, then at the chapel in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, where Cerwin replaced the thermostat.
Sunset at Mark and Diane’s house
We checked into our hotel in Auburn, then went to Mark and Diane’s house – where Josiah will be staying. We chose to stay at the hotel where the wedding was going to be held since Mark and Diane’s house was full with their out-of-state children.
Then eight of us (ladies) went to Elizabeth Nails in Brunswick where we got manicures and pedicures.
Our favorite part – when our hands and feet are in warm paraffin.
Lydia’s friend Mary Ellen and our daughter Diane – mother of the bride.
Elizabeth’s sisters – Hannah and Abigail
Elizabeth’s sister Lydia
Elizabeth and Cora – the bride and her bridesmaid.
Several got French tips on their toes.
Drying the polish
Showing the ladies a picture of her wedding dress.
Watching a game. I think it was soccer
Back at the Myers, I gave Elizabeth and Nsimba a card from my friend Inge.
Nsimba read Inge’s note to them that was written in Portuguese.
While we were at the nail salon, Nathaniel (Abby’s husband) set up the train and tracks for Anthony.
Tomorrow night – Wedding Preparations
