Ben and Jo's Wedding

After Deborah's wedding it was time for our vacation to Dunham. We left early July 10th and spent a whole day driving. We had so much fun driving the back roads through the states to get there.

We even drove through MEXICO....hehehe....Mexico Maine that is. Micah made me get out and take this picture of him!

We stopped half way along the ride for a nice picnic lunch by this beautiful lake. The weather was a bit warm for driving but we finally made it there that evening.

We had a wonderful week hanging out with family as we helped Ben and Jo prepare for their big day. Our days were filled with long "to do" lists as we all helped to prepare for the big day. At night we enjoyed having hot drinks in our hands, games and fellowship.

The wedding took place on July 14th. It was a beautiful day for an outside wedding. Guests began arriving early in the morning as most people were staying at the YWAM base for the night.

After the ceremony, the wedding party along with family went to take pictures on a beautiful hillside that was very special to both Ben and Jo.

The day was so much fun because we got to meet up with friends and family that we had not seen in a long time. The Peterson grandparents along with Joan arrived early in the week, Mike and Anna Cains drove from Toronto, Dave and Kate Turner came from Montreal and our dear friend Rob flew in from...well I don't really remember where he is now, but I know it is far away. The reception was a blast as we were entertained by Jamie and Marie-Helene Morell. The night ended with a very fun Quebec wedding dance!

The next morning all the guest enjoyed a delicious brunch, which was prepared by the brides maids. We had so much fun at the wedding that even baby Miah was tired out the next day.

That afternoon family and friends joined Ben and Jo as they opened many wonderful wedding gifts before heading off for more honeymooning!
