July 30, 2016 - Laura's Wedding

My sister, Nancy, has three kids. The older two have been married for a while; it was time for the youngest to enter the bonds of matrimony. Laura and her intended, Graham, attended Penn State University, so the ceremony was planned to be in State College, PA. Patty and I were invited, so we planned a road trip to central PA for the weekend activities. After an overnight stop near Charlotte, NC, we followed the mountains north to PA and arrived Friday evening for the Saturday ceremony.

The movie below shows the ceremony and some of the party afterwards.

On our return trip, we spent a day at Valley Forge, and then another day at Gettysburg, before moving on to Washington, DC. We scheduled two days to visit museums, and we did get to the Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History, the Museum of American History, the Postal Museum, and the National Air and Space Museum. Two more days of driving and we were home after being away for more than a week.
