Who would have thought? Mike getting married? It's not easy to imagine
high school friends growing up and starting families, but I guess that's
the way it goes. Since the wedding was in Madison I finally got to visit,
after failed past attempts.

The day before the big day, after tubing on lake Delton. Tubing was a
success since we accomplished our goal of not getting Mike hurt. And what
a fun way to not hurt Mike it was.

I have a new-found respect for alumni associations. When fixing up my
contact information on the Rice alumni page, I found that Julie, of the
'96-'97 Baker Tower, appeared to be living in Wisconsin. Sure enough, she
was not only in Wisconsin, but right down the street from where Mike was
getting married. What are the chances of that?

Waiting for Mike to get to Essen Haus for one last celebration as a single
man, with Julie and Spaten Optimator. E-I-E-I-E-I-O!

Madison is the state capitol of Wisconsin. Pretty neat, eh?

Wedding day.

It won't be long now...

Oh, the tension...

and it's done.

Time to get out of here.

The first dance.

Mike and the groomsmen and bridesmaids.
