Ray and Val got married
Ray and Val got married, here they are with their first dance as married folks. I was pretty sure this day would come for a couple of years now, but its nice to see it finally happen. A new chapter. We also got to see the Cheungs and the Chus. This was the first wedding I've been to in a while, but I think it will be hard to top. Since it was at Val's house I only had to drive like a minute. Most convenient wedding ceremony ever, the pastor got things going quick too which was good since we were out int he garden. I was doing the video camera so I was standing too. I hope the video came out ok. So after the wedding we had some time to kill before the banquet so Daniel, Miloni, Alex, Bob and I went went to old town Pasadena. So for the next 4 hours or so we went to some bars and drank in moderation while watching the SC-Irish game. Too bad the Irish lost. It was a little odd since it was the middle of the day and we were in stuffy ties drinking and being loud. Miloni gets a pat on the back for taking a lap around old town with us in her high heel sandals.
So after a little technical difficulties we escaped from the Parsons' public parking lot in Pasadena and got to NBC seafood in Monterey Park. I hope no one noticed my red face and shades. The food was great, everything I liked was on the menu and of course there was more vino. After eating there was dancing, Ray's dad can boogie man, he's got some flair. He certainly danced circles around me, (sorry Liz for stepping on your toes).
After the banquet, Liz took us to a Boba place she knows on Main and Garfield, we met more of my sister's friends there and played some cards and an intense game of Jenga. I don't really like Jenga, but its pretty funny playing Jenga with caffeine hands. After boba Steve Wong let those of us who still had fuel left into his place and played fooshball and ping pong. about 3:30 I said goobye to everybody and Daniel dropped me off at home. Suprisingly I got up early enough to go to mass today.
So tomorrow Ray and Val take off to Mexico for their honeymoon. Can you beleive it?
