This last weekend, Ellie, Kohlton and I attended the Aubrey and Andreas Suter wedding. It took place in a fabulous rented private residence in Copper Mountain. It was a casual and fun wedding.
The house was amazing and huge. In the basement there were two bedroom, a game room complete with a pool table, a movie theater, bathrooms and a bunk bed room. The bunk bed room featured six queen size beds, each with its own cable & DVD player with headphones and a light. There were also several bathrooms. On the main floor there was an amazing kitchen, a great room, a study, a few bathrooms, a large pantry and a bedroom. There was also a porch and a hot tub. Upstairs there was a living room, a few bedrooms, a giant guest bedroom and an amazing bathroom. Since it is still mud season (the time when the snow has melted, but it is not really warm enough for summer, yet) they were able to rent the entire house for $500 a nice, three night minium. It looked like a relaxing and fun way to celebrate a marriage.
We decided to make a road trip of the affair. We brought Remmie along. We found that he is not fond of going more than 50 miles per hour in the car. At first he seemed happy to be included; he enjoyed sticking his head out of the car window, until we got going too fast. Then his joy turned to concern and he huddled in a ball in the back seat. At the hotel he was happy when we were all in the room together, but when the kids when out shopping (it is an outlet mall town), Remmie became worried. I was still fairly sick so Ellie drove. I was able to tuck myself away for a while during the reception for a nap and then I took a longer one at the hotel when the kids were out. The hotel room was a big disappointment, but we still enjoyed ourselves. I managed to sleep all of the way home since my girl opted to drive - a nice thing about her growing up and liking to drive.
