Michael and Marie's Wedding

My brother Michael married his sweetheart Marie on July 12, 2008. They're already back from the honeymoon in California and moved in to their home in Charlottesville.

The complete Perry clan at the rehearsal dinner

Henry and Aunt Kelly shared a glass of wine.

"I'm pretty much adorable."

The Perry ladies at the reception--aren't we well-coordinated?
From left to right: me, Mom, Marie, Kelly

After all the festivities ended, Mom modeled her wedding dress for us.

It was a long and busy weekend.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Perry!

The Great American Balloon Race

On the Sunday of The Great American Brass Band Festival, (site here)
we attended the hot-air balloon race. 

We were really close to the balloons as they took off!

Henry was duly impressed.

He even brought his Bee-bo along for the fun.

Brusha brusha brusha

Don't be fooled, there's more chewing the toothbrush
than tooth-cleaning getting done.

We visited the Fort Harrod Beef Festival

No pictures from that, but we did hit the park afterwards. Henry did not like the swings, but he seemed to enjoy the mulch. 

"Seriously, Mom, it is hot out here!"

"I'm hitting the road!"

A Boy's First Haircut

Don't be fooled by the initial appearance of calm...

...it didn't last long.

Everyone survived! I felt bad for Mike the barber,
but he bravely hung in there the whole time!
