first a huge family wedding... my mom's bff's daughter got married (by the way- the bride's mom, is "my" Teri- a second mother to me! and she looked HOT at the wedding- hi Teri!). She is basically another sister, another daughter to my parents, raised by her mom and my parents. So, it was a weekend full of festivities! The bride and groom had a fabulous time and felt the love, which made it perfect :).

I cannot explain how amazing this weekend was!!! I absolutely loved having ALL my cousins in NC with us... what a blast! We missed my brother terribly (who is deployed) but took lots of pics to show him. Family came in from San Fran, Long Beach CA, Miami, Denver, Providence, Bostin, Blacksburg, and right here from across NC. There was good food, toasts, poems, and great celebration! When you make it to 90 in great shape, you celebrate- right Mimi and PopPop?? :)
Here are some pictures!
