Many of you know that my sister got married at the beginning of Oct. I will just leave it at the "beginning of Oct" because according to me she got married the 7th but to her and the rest of my family it was the 6th :)
She was nice enough to have an evening wedding so that I could attend in the morning and not in middle of the night-I got up at 5:40am and biked to my friend Gina's house, so that I could watch the wedding with someone! We hooked up my computer to her TV and sat back on beanbags to watch the wedding! I bet none of you have ever sat on a beanbag during a wedding...
Unfortunately they couldn't hear me too well (actually they might have thought that was a good thing), but I could see and hear them just fine! I also could hear my family in MN. The wedding took place in Guatemala, so they had two computers- one to skype with Thailand and one to skype with Minnesota.
3 time zones,
(even though I was in Thailand I spoke English to them).

|Ok so this isn't "my view" but here we are with the|
bride and groom on the other side of the world!
|My sister and I...while waiting for the pastor....|
|The TV, computer and me :)|
|They missed the memo to look at the camera!|
|Praying- Thai style|
|See us in the corner?!?!|
Some of my favorite parts were listening to my dad pray for Fernando and Erica and my nephews singing "Here comes the Bride" at the top of their lungs. To think that they were in MN and I was skyping with someone in Guatemala is pretty cool. Oh technology :)
