Weekend Whirlwind

Ever had a weekend where you feel like you need another just to recover? That was me this past weekend. I had so much fun and spent some great time with family and friends, but it all caught up with me with a springtime cold. I won't dwell on my stuffy & runny nose, cough, and lack of two senses, though....

Friday started the weekend festivities with an open house for relatives and friends in celebration of my cousin's wedding. So fun! We brought yard games, had great food, and met the bride's family, who were really friendly and great.

Saturday was the big day... after seven years of dating, my cousin married his high school sweetheart, Dana. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception. And I'm pretty sure I cried way more at their wedding than at my own. That night, we yeehawed our way to Southern Junction to have a huge steak and baked potato dinner. It was quite the experience; you pay for the dinner, go pick out your cut of meat, and then cook it over hot coals (or pay $2 more to have someone cook it for you... but what fun is that?!). It was delicious, if I do say so myself. Then, we had some drinks and an impromptu pool tournament. And who was the star player of the night?? None other than my dad! Two words: pool shark.

Sunday was Easter... so more family time at my grandparents' house. We had a mighty battle of washers, a yard game that we brought from Illinois. And fun was had by all.... but geez louise. I'm getting too old to have so many activities in a weekend. I like my lazy days with sleeping in and pajamas until 10am. But enough gabbing... here are some of the wedding pics I took....
