but I got some pictures.

Since I last disappeared after asking about things to do in Orlando I have gotten hitched and been honeymooning and then the business of getting back to life.

We ended up doing Sea World, felt like I was a little kid watching the dolphins. Ripley's. Universal studios, which was closing early the day we went, plus Twister was blacked off and closed for a private event.

Also, you ever notice those signs warning of heart trouble and the such before getting on rides? Well there is one on the sign for the Mummy that says certain body proportioned people may not fit.... Yeah, they could have my picture on the sign.

I'm the first one in and I sit down and the bar clicks several times and I'm pretty snugly in place and the girl running the ride is checking and asks if I can get the bar in any more and I pull and it clicks again and she looks and says, "how about one more?" I grab my belly and try to place it over the bar to get it in a little more while my new wife is saying not to hurt myself.

Ultimately I couldn't get it in any further and they had to reset the car and open all the gates and everyone got to watch as I walked back past everyone still waiting in line.

Four years ago this would have horrified me, but thanks to a lot of the people here helping me to see who I am and appreciate myself I am able to laugh about it and share this little misfortune with you all.

Other than that, it was a great day.

Got to see Blue Man group and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more! Laughed until my sides hurt.

There were really only two disappointments, the first was Wonderworks, it just didn't have enough stuff to justify the price IMO, at least not for adults.

Then there was this little strip mall down the street from where we stayed and as we drive by we see the name of one of the stores.

CHOCOLATE MUSEUM AND CAFE!!!!!!

See chocolate is our thing.

But after looking around we find that the place is supposed to be having its grand opening next week.

But other than that, it was a great time.

Oh yeah, I did mention pictures didn't I.


The cake


Grooms cake from the rehearsal dinner


We had the kids help us during the candle ceremony then we prayed together.


First moments as husband and wife as we head back up the aisle to the theme song from peanuts, good ole Lucy and Linus.


She was laughing because I had trouble getting on and off of those moving walkways.


Me and my beautiful bride


Fun with mirrors


How we delt with pre wedding jitters


I have put on a few pounds.


Yes, I was still joking with the pastor at this point.


What do chocolate lovers have at their reception, why chocolate of course.


We're a couple of nuts, perfect for each other.

Looking forward to a lifetime of happiness together. Oh and I was ordained this past Monday night as well.

Thank you all so much. I know I wouldn't be where I am without so many from this wonderful place.

Did you not tell us so you didn't have to invite us all?

I did think about livestreaming it.
