Countdown To A Wedding

We're leaving tomorrow morning for Columbia, Missouri.  Son Brian's wedding is late afternoon Saturday, on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River.  Needless to say, I'm incredibly excited.  The next few days will be a flurry of activities leading up to the main event.

I'm making a pile of things to take to make sure I don't forget anything.  In addition to all the normal things you bring for a trip out of town, there's:
  • The Dress
  • Undergarments
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry and a selection of possible hair accessories
  • An outfit for the rehearsal and dinner afterwards
  • The gift
The rehearsal and dinner are tomorrow night.  While the women are primping on Saturday, the men will be hanging out, then getting spiffed up themselves. We'll rendezvous in time for the ceremony.  The reception will be held at the same location, so there won't be a lot of driving involved.  After a good night's sleep on Saturday, we'll get back on the road Sunday to come home.

Whew!  It will be quite a weekend.
