Fortunat times

They say that life is full of peaks and valleys, highs and lows.  After this last month, I am a complete believer in that!

July 25th, my dad and I went up to Charlotte Queen Adventures to do a little salmon fishing around the Queen Charlotte Island in BC and enjoy a little time away from phones and work.  Bruce Plankington who owned the boat took us up there as an All the talk was the fishing was the best since they started the boat.

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to get married.  The goal was to make it a happy hour arrangement and had ordurves and a cash bar.  The ceremony was out on the patio of the clubhouse at the Breckenridge Golf Course.  It was funny because people that went to the course to have lunch turned out to be in the middle of a wedding.  My bride was gorgeous and I couldn’t take my eyes off her!  I just want to say sorry to the friends that we couldn’t invite.  It would have been easier to elope!  hahaha

We ended up leaving for the honeymoon on Tuesday.  we decided that it would be best to take the girls and go to Orlando and hit the amusement parks. Universal Studios and Universal Adventure Island was the deal and both did not disappoint.
