Lesson learned--double check everything

My fingerprints for USCIS expire at the end of Sept. I followed the instructions on my 1-171H and send in the request for an appointment for re-fingerprinting with a $70.00 fee. I guess I should have checked their website because the fee has changed to $80.00 and I received my letter back with instructions to send the correct payment amount. One more trip to the bank for a cashier's check and a new request is back in the mail. Hopefully this one will bring a quick appointment and this will all get done in time.

Congratulations Dawn and Kevin

My brother Kevin found the beautiful Love of his Life when he moved to Seattle and last weekend he made his dreams come true by marrying her. I got to go to another destination wedding (at least for me).
Seattle was boasting the hottest temps on record ever and the whole wedding/reception was held in their backyard but depite that, we had a wonderful time and the wedding was beautiful and fun.
The bride and groom with the "groom's" cake. It was pretty cool.

Kevin and Dawn both came into this relationship with two children and now have this amazing family.

The bride and groom before the wedding--she had a vintage gown

Dawn and Kevin have worked on their yard and flower gardens all summer and it really shows.
The backyard was set up for the reception and the wedding took place in the front of their house.

They said their vows and then the party began. We had awesome food and made many toasts to the new couple and dancing went on well into the night. It was great fun.-

The two mothers--my mom in peach and Dawn's mom in purple

Me and my sisters--Kathy(Kevin's twin sister), Teresa, and me.

All of the McNab's that were able to make it

The day after the wedding, we went to Mercer Island and watched the Blue Angels air show. A perfect place to be on a hot afternoon.

Another beautiful wedding and great weekend.
I am so lucky to have gained two fabulous sisters this summer--My brother's sure know how to pick em!
