L-R: Me, Emily, Bri, Callie, Chelsea, Elizabeth, Delaney, Eric, Fraser, Grace. Just missing the two youngest Hannah and Hunter!
In March we headed out to Arizona for my Cousin's wedding. It was a lovely affair and even though I hate weddings (I'll save all my reasons for a post much longer and further down the road), I bawled like a baby. There were some incredibly sweet and beautiful moments, including my 90-something year old great-grandmother being "danced" in her wheel chair. Her smile was just the best thing ever.
At some point we can-caned. I know not why.
I don't even know.
Our dancing skillz were obvi the best there.

Have you ever tried to get 12 people to all have their eyes open/smiling at the same time? Good Lord!
Papa's dance moves rivaled Gracie's.
Emily looked beautiful and I lost it when her new husband started bawling as she came down the aisle. It was such a wonderfully sweet moment. Love is really wonderful isn't it? Congrats Emily and Cody! I wish you both all the joy and love and happiness in the world!
For some reason I started sharpening a coffee stirrer with a steak knife...
I think this might have been after my third cranberry vodka. (they were tiny!)
Emily's dad performed the ceremony. I love it when family is so involved in weddings!
The pretty and yummy cake!
The next day we found a breakfast place in Phoenix, while I was grumpy and cranky about the heat (seriously guys, I'm the biggest baby. It was like 75 and I literally pouted the whole morning), and got a phone call from Sarah to tell me she and her Cody are Engaged! Yayyayyayyay! I am so happy for her! Yay Love!
The road was primitive.
This seemed legit.
Ah yes, the scenery...
And I got excited about taking a picture with a cactus.
P.S. here is a picture of Sarah's ring. Ain't it a beaut!
