The Wedding

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for your patience while we have been missing in action this past week, but we had a very special event in our lives. Our only son Matthew married his soul mate Stephanie.


















We have also had a lot of close family members staying with us from interstate so it has really been a wonderful week.
