Jimmy & Julia's wedding in Florida

We took a roadtrip with Bindu to Tampa for Jimmy and Julia's wedding. (Jimmy Smurf, as he is affectionately referred to, and Roby have known each other since kindergarten.) It was an interesting 7-hour drive with antsy Owen in the back. We stopped more than we normally would have, but it all went pretty smoothly. The only meltdowns O had were when we were close to our destinations, which is when we resorted to letting him attempt to destroy Roby's cell phone. We spent one night in Tampa and enjoyed a delicious dinner at a local restaurant overlooking the water. Filet Mignon with gorgonzola cheese anyone?

The wedding, held in a beautiful church, was lovely, and the bride and groom radiant. The reception was also quite an awesome event. We chatted with our table mates, while watching the slideshow Jimmy made and Julia's cousins performing Indian dances. Roby and Bindu enjoyed seeing some philly friends from back in the day.

After the reception, we headed to Orlando to visit Judy, my friend and former co-worker at The JESUS Film Project (and also Shannon's mother). We had fun talking into the night and hanging out in the morning before we had to take off. It definitely was too short of a visit, but we welcomed the opportunity to see her while we were nearby. I was happy that Judes got to meet Owen while he is still a wee she had some good practice with Owen as she eagerly awaits becoming a first-time grandmother in a few short months! (Her daughter Suzanne is preggo!)

Now that we know it is possible, we will have to make another trip to Orlando when Owen is a little bit older. Disney World is within his reach!
