JJ and Brandy's Wedding Celebration

JJ & Brandy's Wedding
September 5th, 2009

JJ and Brandy were married September 5th (also Andy & Emily's and Tony & Karen's Anniversary). They had a beautiful wedding at the Galivan Center. As always my Mom did a wonderful job decorating and make the place look spectacular. It was a fun celebration and I am so happy for both of them.

FiSh LaKe

A few weekends ago my Dad's side of the family all met up in Fish Lake for a mini family reunion. It was fun to see all my cousins, second cousins, aunts and uncles and Great Aunt and Uncles.

My Dad's Uncle Wayne and Aunt Verl joined us for an afternoon. A little history about them. They are in their 90's and are going strong. Uncle Wayne had just turned 94 and we celebrated with birthday cake. Also that day they were celebrating their wedding anniversary so it was a good day. My Great Aunt and Uncles Bud and Zonnie, and Wayne and Verl have property up in fish lake and used to spend a lot of time up there. Growing up we all have had great memories of being there and so it was fun to go back as a family and spend some time with them. It was cold... snow cold, but we had a lot of fun. We had games, and four wheelers and camp fires and wonderful meals cooked by each family.

Kennedy has had this bond with Uncle Wayne since our last fish lake trip. She sat on his lap for hours. This time she jumped up on his lap and chatted his ear off. It was so funny. She opened her Spree's candy and shared them with him and he wasn't too impressed with the hardness of it.

I love this picture of Kennedy looking at the pumpkin

As we were hanging out and all socializing I looked over to see Kennedy just sitting on her four wheeler. She loves the "bikes".

Aunt Verl had on this steller jump suit outfit... All the girls up there were commenting on how hip she looked in her 90's.

part of the gang socializing

As we were leaving on Sunday I was helping Andy load up all the four wheelers and bikes on the trailer and a snow/hail storm rolled in. It was a bitter sweet. I loved seeing snow fall, but it was so darn windy and cold getting those tie downs on. All in all the weekend was so fun and full of so many great memories.
