May 28, 2010 marks the beginning of our stormchase this year. It doesn't look like much will be happening the first few days that we are out. We begin the vacation by attending a wedding of some friends down at the Wichita Wildlife Refuge near Medicine Park, OK.
Gene Rhoden and Heather Tracy are getting married at 11:30 am today. We received the invitation in the form of a DVD with pictures of the two of them describing their life since finding one another. The wedding was billed as a casual affair and promised to be a lot of fun. Unfortunately life had other plans for Chuck and I that morning and we didn't make it to the wedding on time but did make it in time to celebrate with them the beginning of their new life together. I am going to try and 'steal' a picture to post here so you can share with us.
This is a picture of Heather and Gene's families.
This one is one of the actual wedding. I wish we could have been there! Life! What a beautiful site to be married at! What a awesome couple getting married! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Rhoden!!!!
After the wedding we headed north to Dodge City KS where we were staying over night the first night. Chuck had booked a room at the Super 8 there for us the night before. It is one of the better franchises. We made it into Dodge about 8pm and went out to eat supper with Carolyn and Jim Johnson at a nifty place called The Bad Habit Bar and Grill. Very nice steak and a great place to go to just sit around and visit for awhile.
We went to bed early so we could be up early to head out for NE in hopes we would be seeing some kind of severe weather tomorrow.
