I’ve touched on the Arends family before – they are becoming a large one of different branches, thanks to several kids in each.

Raylene was the daughter of Ray Arends and Penny Lillard, Penny having died shortly after giving birth.  Ray always resisted the urge to call his daughter Penny, so much did she look like his deceased first wife.

Well, Raylene went to university, then headed back to Veronaville where she advertised for a flatmate.  The flatmate turned out to be one fairly handsome townie by the name of Alvin Bear.  Raylene and he got on very well, so, as you can guess, they fell in love and Alvin proposed.  They held the wedding party in the back yard of the apartment.

A pretty informal affair as you can tell by Raylene’s dress.

Guests included some of the family.

Alvin did wonder where his new wife had disappeared to.

She was urgently called to the toilet.

She ended up having twin girls, Lizzie and Paula (Bear).
