One of the drawbacks to having your kids grow up around a weekly DnD play session is that they grow up odd. When they where babies we would take elf breaks to feed, change, and play with them. When they got older Saturday morning my husband and I would awake to the sounds of scaling ladders (chairs) being drug across the kitchen floors as they raided the counters of what ever the players left behind the night before. That meant Dad and I could catch a small nap as they quickly took the booty back to Rachel's bed to split the ill gotten gains. The teen years meant much angst for Dad, shock-horror they played a game called Rifts!! I laughed at him and reminded him of our parents horror about DnD.

But time marches on and when raised right them come back to the basics. Our Son plays DDO with us as well as a Friday group at a table. This is him http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads976.jpg Our daughter is a table top snob and will not play on line. I know I have failed.

Friday our only little princess got married, by a Druid no less. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads990.jpg She chose to be married at Hidden Lake a place that she grew up taking family camping trips to. The groom who has no DnD background was a great sport and dressed up to just a few grumbles about looking like a Dork. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads999.jpg

My cake rolled a ONE. Epic fail http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads971.jpg So I hand made roses out of gum paste for over a week. First time ever, at the risk of being immodest they turned out not too very bad. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads958.jpg It took two days to bake and make filling for this huge cake, at mid point I decide that maybe it would be best to only assemble it only half way at home and finish it out at the lake, after all it is a long drive up a dirt mountain road. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads965.jpg At this point I was still working out placement of towers etc. We put it in Sons ford explorer with the please drive very slow on the dirt road. He did, but the dowels between the layers jiggled away and with out them the weight of the cake caused it to to collapse. OK, I wanted to cry. I wanted to pitch it into the lake and hide the fact that it ever was made. I had hungry folks to feed and had to swallow my pride and make due. The top was fine, albeit on a black cutting board so that was what we used. Sigh. The roses where very pretty and the cake tasted good. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads970.jpg Yeric was busy making the ribs and brisket as I failed at the cake. His turned out wonderful. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads963.jpg Bobby - AKA - Yeric with our daughter http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads984.jpg The druid with his lovely family, his daughter the pixie princess and his beautiful wife http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads986.jpg http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads987.jpg The bride and groom cutting the cake. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1006.jpg http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1007.jpg

As a proud DnD mom I must say that son - AKA - Virgel handles a sword far better then the two on ether side of him. http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1002.jpg http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1003.jpg http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1004.jpg Rachel did not have a Maid of honour, she had a Man of honour http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c83/t11queen/?action=view&current=Dads1000.jpg

And me? Are you kidding? Cameras will steal your soul. As mom it is fitting that I own them. OK, I was dressed as mother nature is a flowing green gown but someone had to be taking shots and holding all the different babies.

Congrats to your daughter on her wedding day and to you, the parent that saw her off! :P

While the cake looked a bit off, it still looked yummy and the ribs looked very good indeed. Again, cheers to you and yours on a very special day.

Thank you and bright blessing to you. Much joy was felt by all, in fact the earth could have split open and swallowed everyone and the bride and groom would never have noticed. :)

And about your signature, here in Alaska when it hits 50 below or better we do indeed say " at least it is a dry cold" :D lol.

Lol, so very few would even understand what was going on I am delighted to find those of my own kind to share with. I should have taken photos of the fishermen around the lake who where staring in disbelief at the wedding.
