A Fantastic Family Weekend

With no pictures taken, well there was this one picture taken but it’s not really something I am going to place up here. I didn’t get a picture of my cousin in her wedding dress at the wedding reception we went to Saturday but let me just tell you she was gorgeous! You see my cousin got married in Las Vegas on August 3rd of this year and held a wedding reception for family and friends at our family farm where my father lives on Saturday evening.

I was unable to get my daughter to attend with us as she had plans with her father and it was his weekend with her but Justin had the night off from work and was able to go with the boys and me. I was excited and nervous about going because after all my Dad’s side of the family is absolutely HUGE and I barely know most of them, but it turned out to be an amazing night. The bride and groom looked so cute as newly weds and I hope they have a wonderfully long lasting marriage together full of happiness and strength to make it through all of life’s challenges!

I was able to mingle with so many adults and my sons were able to play with the next generation of cousins that I am sure will spend lots of time seeing each other on the farm and playing! Mostly boys, which was sort of scary think about. There was one little girl there but the rest were boys and they all got along really well running around, bashing balloons, playing tag, swinging and sliding! Baby K fell off of the monkey bar ladder and went backwards which totally scared me but he was okay. It was amazing that with myself, Justin and my father right there none of us were able to catch him in time.

As the event started going further into the evening hours I had my sister make me a few drinks, which I later regretted because let’s just say I am not used to drinking liquor.

I was happy to see family in the light I like to see a family, the ups and downs, the smiles, the laughter and the hugs and kisses! That is why I love attending events on my father’s side of the family because no matter what you do, say or how unique you are no one judges you or looks down upon you. It’s like no matter whether you are blood related or best friends of the family you are welcomed there with open arms and that is my kind of family!

Congrats cuz I wish you and your new beau a wonderful life together and hope to see you guys again soon!

  3. Sounds like fun. Our family too is loaded with boys. Out of all the cousins there are 10 boys and 2 girls who are babies so playtime gets very interesting and rough.
