And it Comes Back to Us: We Dance with our Parents

Since the food was eaten and the cake was cut, the next thing on our reception itinerary was the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance.  Mr. L and I had decided for awhile to combine these two dances.  Neither of us are big on dancing, so after reading a few posts over on Weddingbee about the different ways we could go about this, we decided to combine the two dances.  We ended up choosing Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World".  Little did we know at the time that it would become an "homage" of sorts to our next home =)




My dad and I danced to the "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" part of the song...




And Mr. L and his mother danced to the "What a Wonderful World" part.




They were so adorable dancing together.  Mr. L couldn't even say anything to her without making her cry, while my dad was busy doling out advice during our dance =)

Towards the end of the song, when it goes back to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", Mr. L escorted his mother off the dance floor and took me out to finish the song.


If I recall correctly, the last part was Mr. L's idea, and I believe it was a wonderful way to symbolize the start of our new journey together as our own family unit.  =)
