I’ve spent the last two days up in Dunkirk, New York for my friend Ethan’s wedding, which took place earlier this afternoon. Ethan was actually the best man at my older brother Jason’s wedding, for those of you who don’t know, and he’s a really great guy. Jason’s family and Courtney and I drove up yesterday from Roanoke and got to spend some time with Ethan’s family, help get a couple of things ready, and take part in the rehearsal as well (Jason is one of Ethan’s groomsmen). Aside from a couple of very short visits from one or two family members, I haven’t been able to see Ethan and his whole family since some time in the early 1990s, so it was great to catch up. They’ve (EDIT: Ethan’s parents—thanks Jason) had a couple more kids since that time, and the one who was a three-year-old is now taller than I am. I guess that’s what that many years will do.
The weekend has been really, really busy, and now we’ve got another 10-hour drive ahead of us starting early in the morning tomorrow, so I’m not going to be able to finish the blog post I’d hoped to get to. I’ve been working on a long one on and off all week, and I’m just not quite happy with it yet. I may post it next week, or if I finish it first, maybe in the middle of this week.
So, as a parting gift, I present to you what is undoubtedly the best action shot I got all day today. Ethan and Ashley narrowly escaping the church with their lives, him so valiantly protecting her and both of them running like mad. I just happened to be tracking them right on so it was in focus.
Congratulations, Ethan and Ashley!
