They're Married!

Today I was privileged to be there when my nephew Eric Walker married his sweetheart, Jacquie Tagg in the Cardston Alberta temple. The sealing was performed by my dad, Reed Erickson, and it was beautiful. I have always had mixed emotions about my own kids' sealings -- both grandpas (Mason and Erickson) were sealers and neither of my kids felt they could choose, so they didn't and just had one of the regular temple sealers do their weddings. But my dad did a really beautiful job and it was so lovely to be there in the sealing room with my older brother, my sister, my nephew Ian, Jacquie's family and many friends of both families.

The reception and dinner were both beautiful -- all in all, a lovely day! I took a lot of pictures and will post them once I get home -- stay tuned!
