Rachelle and I are in Alabama with our son Logan after the Convention in New Orleans and a wedding last weekend in Destin, Florida. We were scheduled to hold the ceremony on the beach, but Tropical Storm Debby had other plans for us and we moved the ceremony indoors. Rachelle and I have four children, a daughter and three sons. Charis, our daughter, was married to Travis Downey this past Sunday and mom and dad are absolutely thrilled! Not only was the ceremony fun and celebratory, more importantly, the young man that has joined our family is a wonderful sports writer in Jackson, Mississippi, a man of faith, and a very gentle soul. It's been a hectic few days for us all, so our youngest son, Logan, and our oldest son Kade and his wife Anne, will be joining us in Alabama for a few days of vacation. Charis and Travis are on their honeymoon and our only regret is that our middle son Boe is unable to join us due to his work back in Enid. We are very appreciative of all those who traveled long distances for the wedding, and especially those who came to Destin from Enid. It was a wonderful weekend! I will be taking a few days off from blogging and will post upon my return to Enid next week! I hope all my faithful readers enjoyed the video reports from the Convention in New Orleans. Below is the bridal portrait of our daughter Charis. Thanks for all your well-wishes and support!
