Ben was super excited to get going.
Madgie and Patch (Jr.) were waiting for us at the airport.
Ben likes to meet other bald men. It makes him feel better about himself.
Ben was constantly amazed by the hubbub at the airport.

In all seriousness it was a fantastic day. Many thanks to Katrina run for the great gifts and the great food. Pictures to come once I can spend longer than 15 minutes out of bed.....

Apparently a sculptor shipped his creation and its display stand to a museum in seperate crates. However, the museum decided to display only the stand.
The relevant quote from the article.
"Given their separate submission, the two parts were judged independently," it said in a
statement. "The head was rejected. The base was thought to have merit and accepted."

At the reception everyone wanted to hold Ben, and we were more then willing to oblige.
Here you can see Ben is really enjoying his time with Aunt Cindy.
She was either fascinated or terrified by Uncle Kevin :)Here is a beautiful shot of the green/brown gang.
Ben needed a break from all the noise.
While he was napping I gave my camera to Mr Geography and asked him to take some shots for me. This is what I got.
The next morning Ben and Caroline said goodbye. We didn't get a shot of it but Ben had grabbed her hand and was sucking on her fingers. She wasn't real happy about it.
Then I showed my family my old school and church. Its a shame they don't try anything too architecturally different today for churches. My church was not particualry beautiful, but I thought it did a fanstastic job of being awe inspiring while still feeling inclusive.
Others have had different opions. (It was once featured in the book Ugly As Sin)
I always loved the statue of Saint Richard on the bridge into the church.
The walkway from the church to the school wasn't quite as cool as I remembered, but it made a nice snapshot. I went to kindergarten in that door on the left, but it was all torn up inside now.
Finally we drove out to madison to see the Deveraux house. We lived here from when I was 12 till about 15.
It was a great house. The woman who lives there now actually invitited us inside! She has imbued the house with even more southern charm, especially where she has created a wonderful courtyard in the back.
Then it was off to the lake for sun and talk until it was time to go to the wedding.
We went to the Rehersal Dinner in downtown Jackson. I thought it was going to be at the same place as the infamous Borat Wine Tasting (If you don't know please don't ask) but alas it was at the other downtown club.
Ben got to meet his Great-Gandy which was enjoyed by all.
Most of the cousins were available for a group shot. Apologies to Sarah for the demonic look, for some reason red-eye reduction wasn't working on her...
I believe I was the tallest cousin at the wedding, but the rumor is that Cousin Cason is several inches taller...:(

We were first thinking that we could just pack him up, but as you can see we ran out of room in the suitcase.
Here is a cute shot of him at 30,000 feet.
He seems to like Florida, although it is really hot!
