A Family Affair

Brent's cousin Mindy was getting married at his Aunt Susie's house in Galveston, Texas, and the entire family was going to be there.  And I mean Every. Single. Solitary. Person. spanning four generations, from one great-grandmother down to her nine great-grandchildren, all together, for the very first time ever.  There was just no way were weren't going, regardless of this stupid cast.  I can't say that it was entirely easy to travel in my condition, but there were some silly perks along the way.

Joseph could not possibly have been more excited to see his cousins Leyton and Ashton, as well as Uncle Glenn, Aunt Suthern, Mimi and Poppy.  Brent has the most amazingly close family and I'm so thrilled that I get to be part of it.  Joseph sees his cousins maybe once a year or so but they just adore each other!

Susie and Gary's house is quite literally right on the water at the bay in Galveston, and it was a beautiful setting for Mindy and Jake's wedding on Saturday.  Her brother Derek (Brent's godson) walked her down the aisle, and her Uncle Gary officiated the ceremony.  It was truly "all in the family."

The ceremony itself may not have been entertaining enough for Joseph and the other kids, but there was plenty of dancing and running amok soon afterwards.  The kids were just desperate to dig into Jake's groom's cake, which was decorated like an LSU football field.

It was such a sweet event and so fantastic to have the whole family all there to celebrate the occasion.  I can't wait to see how the big family photos  turned out!  Congratulations Mindy and Jake!
