Gavin and Rachel
Gavin and Rachel's Wedding is just two weeks away. Everyone is getting excited. There will be family there from Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. There have been lots of preparations but everything is in order. We are leaving this afternoon for Keene, Texas to take Gavin and Rachel a washer and dryer. We purchased the set for them when some dear friends of ours were moving to Oregon.
Last fall Gina and I took Gavin and Rachel's engagement photos. We went to Janssen Park here in Mena and tried our hand at being professional photographers. Gina would work with them on posing and placement and then we would both take photos. The two camera system worked great. With slightly different angles and more photos to choose from I think that we got better pictures than if just one of us was photographing.
The old police car is a 1939 Dodge that the city bought from my Dad in the 80's and outfitted as a police car to use in parades, and as an attraction. The car, affectionately known as "Flossie" by the local cops, was used in the movie "The Pardon" that chronicles the story of Toni Jo Henry; the first woman to be executed in the state of Louisana.
We had a great time taking the photos, and I think that the photos show that the kids enjoyed themselves.
