Celebrating Kelli and Derek's Marriage

Derek and Kelli
My (Rob) niece  and god-daughter Kelli and husband Derek  married last week in Arizona and returned to Maryland this week for a local reception/cookout this weekend. It was a perfect weather day!
  Kelli's parents went way overboard with food and everything was
L to R: Allen, Sterling (seated), Sean, Kenny, Rob, Tom

 perfect.  Kelli and Derek make such a beautiful couple. Here are a couple of pictures from the cookout.

 It's always great to hang out with family and friends, and we enjoyed lots of laughs with friends Sterling, Sean, Allen and Kenny amidst the food and fun.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
