Kansas Use To Be An Ocean

My wife and I had a busy weekend. We spent Friday night in the Bar-N. My brother-in-law built an 8 foot bar in his basement complete with a drunk tank. We affectionately call it the Bar-N for various reasons. It was a bit of an odd evening, but the theme defiantly revolved around a truck full of bowling balls. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you're better for it.

Saturday we rolled out of bed, washed the hangover out of our eyes, jumped into the car with our dog and a friend, and headed for Wichita. A fabulous Wedding was occurring in the bustling town of Benton.

An outdoor wedding seems like a risky maneuver, but it paid off this time. Not a cloud in the sky and just a bit on the warmer side of comfortable. We did our part to distract the flower girl and generally disrupt the proceedings. However, the best man speech was the real show. Since the groom had given an infamous speech at his best man's wedding, there was a bit of a build up for this speech. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. Why do you keep your mouth shut while holding a baby over your head, Dena?

Sunday was a lazy day. We left my sisters around noon, and planned nothing for the rest of the day. On the return trip I notice that the turnpike from Emporia to Topeka had been dedicated to the US Submarine Veterans. 500 miles from the nearest submarine you would think they could find a more appropriate highway to serve as a memorial.

I'm soooooo sad I missed the speech. Did you sing along to the song?

yes the best man's speech was a great speech. Although I lost hours of sleep the night before scared of what was going to be said, in the end it turned out okay. Let me inform you, that holding a baby over your head with your mouth open is dangerous because baby spit-up is just about one of the most grossest tastes ever... and it lingers. Anyway, I learned my lesson. I still think that Matt's Matrix gynastics was better though. Weren't you with us when he did that?
I am very happy that the wedding went well outdoors. We did plan a short ceremony because of the heat though and we had the reception site as back up in case Mother Nature didn't cooperate with us, but low and behold, everything turned out just as I hoped it would. Thanks again for making the long trip to come to my wedding.

Also, I absolutely love the story of the Bar-N.

We were happy to come. It was good times.

I missed the Matrix gymnastics, so I'm in the dark on that particular embarrassing moment.

I had not seen the end of Napoleon Dynamite. Tom filled me in, and I pulled it from YouTube.
