Vows in the park

It's official.

Older son Andrew exchanged vows with Josie today in Madison, Wis. The setting was Olin-Turville Park, on the Lake Monona shoreline. They met four years ago, when they were students at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Legend has it the occasion was an Ultimate Frisbee event of some sort -- but parents are rarely filled in on those details.

We are thrilled to have Josie as an official member of our family -- we have considered her such for some time -- and, as best we can tell, Josie's relatives feel the same about Andy.

Several folks said to me at the reception, "Two down, two to go." Yes, the oldest two of our four children are now married. And we're pleased with -- and proud of -- their choices for their life partners.

Can a parent ask for anything more?
