Another Rustic Wedding and A Little Exercise

This morning, Ron and I once again got up VERY early and headed to the park for the opening of this year's USA Fit program.  After a 6 month hiatus from running, we've both been slowly trying to get back into the habit.  This program is sure to do it!  This year, I am planning to focus on shorter distances, such as 10K's rather than a half-marathon, so I offered to be the person to stroll with Luke while his Mama and Daddy run the courses.
It was a beautiful morning and Luke seemed to enjoy our 2.5 mile stroll while we waited for the runners.
With six family members participating, the USA Fit organizer laughingly suggested that we come up with team name.  We decided "Team Luke" was perfect for us!  Now we just need to get him a little running suit . . .
I came home directly after running, showered and headed out to the Cottage Grove Plantation, working for Young Blooms, to set up flowers for my friend Cindy's daughter's wedding.  She chose to have a rustic, outdoor wedding at her aunt and uncle's family "farm" and it was just beautiful!!
Her colors were mint green and navy and she had collected lots of thrift store vases, bottles and cans which were painted and filled with flowers for the tables.
Of course, Louisiana in September means that we got pretty warm during the setup.  However, when Ron and I returned a few hours later for the wedding, some clouds had rolled in and a slight breeze kept the air moving.

Elizabeth did much of the planning herself and she and Colt filled the celebration with touches of their favorite things.   There were hand-lettered signs . . .
. . . a photo booth with all sorts of props that was set up on the back of a fence (which I think was hiding plumbing sruff). . .
. . . and even a place to play lawn games.
How cute are these bean bag toss boards that her big brother made?!?  And the monogrammed beanbags?
What a fun celebration for such a sweet couple!
