Gabe Rodriguez and Cristie Dertien Wedding July 14, 2012

Our middle son Gabe married Cristie Dertien in San Diego on July 1, 2012 at a beautiful ceremony overlooking Mission Bay complete with sunset and fireworks. They honeymooned in Kaui and Maui.





They traveled back to Michigan for another  family wedding reception where we joined them for a week in Grand Rapids. Today is Labor Day and the official end of our summer which was packed with wonderful family memories, lots of activity and excitement and filled with much gratitude for it all. Our grandson Evan is 9 months now and a real joy.  Just look at that smile! Does that look like Target?
