Our CP group went apple picking this past Saturday at skytop orchard. Sadly its nearly impossible to keep such a large group together while doing something like apple picking but we had a lot of fun hanging out with the Hills when everyone else went behind a line of trees and disappeared. Our two favorite kinds of apples were technically not picking but when we passed by those trees, they had so many apples that they were dropping a third of their apples to the ground already. Will and I picked a bushel of apples. We are looking forward to making our favorite pioneer woman recipes!
We lost the rest of the group....but we still had a blast!
Look at all the apples on this tree! I have no idea why it was closed because the apples where already passing being ripe and were dropping to the ground right and left.
We finally caught up with the rest of the group and they had a successful day as well. I'm glad that we got to spend time with everyone!
Wedding season part two has begun with three friends weddings in a row. I didn't get to go to Jimbo's wedding last weekend so no pictures...(though if you would like a funny story, ask my husband about how he ran into Jimbo on his honeymoon when my husband was heading back home).
This past weekend, Will and I got to go see two of our friends get married. Patrick and Lauren were in our singles cp group for several years with us and I'm so excited we finally got to see them get hitched. I don't think I'll tire of seeing a godly man and woman cut a covenant with God in marriage.
I didn't have a great seat at the wedding, so fast forward to the reception.
Our old cp group + Jason and Cayce
Congrats to David and Sarah who got hitched on Saturday. They were a couple who joined our church shortly after getting engaged and joined our newlywed cp group to learn from newlyweds before getting married, graduating, and moving on to jobs and their next stage of life. We enjoyed getting to know them this past semester and I look forward to seeing them grow as a couple the next few months before they move away. Here are some of the highlights of their wedding...
Its hard to tell but we managed to grab our own cp group block seating at the wedding
Funny story...so we were are coctail hour of the reception, hanging out waiting for the party to show up and Laura looked over and this burlap square had caught on fire by one of the chafing dishes...Kelly's maternal instincts suddenly kicked in and she started running to the fire and started fanning it (which kind of made the fire grow more). Luckily its hard to miss a pregnant lady running across the room and then stopping to wave her arms, so she grabbed Ben's attention who rushed over and poured his beer on it and put it out. My husband then retrieved the burlap square and wrapped it as a gift so we could give a group gift to the lucky couple
Its a little weird that I have friends my age that have a one year old son already, but nevertheless it was great to be able to come to Henry's first birthday. He's got the funniest expressions, so watching him eat his first cupcake was hilarious!
Not everyone from our CP group was able to come but we finally got a picture of those who were able to make it...I love that we naturally arranged ourselves by height
We are the Rogers. We have been married since August and are loving it! Will recently graduated with his PhD in Civil Engineering and I am currently an IT assistant by day and a photographer by night.
