Regan's Wedding (11/7/92)

Regan, our daughter, got married on November 7, 1992 to a neighbor, Don Henry.   It was a union that didn't last, but she had a wonderful wedding reception that was held at the Arizona Country Club.   A client of Libby's sponsored the event there.

It wasn't a lavish affair for such a place, but we were able to invite many friends.   Below are some photos:

Our Activities

For the most part, we haven't done a lot of activities during our marriage.   We have, of course, worked careers, raised a family, and lived in a number of homes.  


Travel

We haven't traveled much, for several reasons.   Mike's reluctance to travel and experience new things (food, language, customs, etc.) is our primary barrier to leaving home.   In years past, cost of flying and/or time to do so were reasons we didn't.

We've had a few travel experiences, though: several cruises; 2 anniversary trips to Hawaii; and trips to Chicago, NYC and Washington, D.C.
