Okay, so I finally got my act together and managed to re-write this post. I am going to keep the babble to a minimum and just let you enjoy some of the weekend pictures.
We kicked things off with the traditional family BBQ. Little man decided to serenade my sister with his version of the Hot Dog song (basically he just kept singing ‘HOT DOOOOG’ in various voices. LOL!).
As you can see, I then took a stab at being a nature photographer….my mom has such a green thumb that these plants were so pretty I just had to take a picture or two…or four.
We pretty much inhaled dinner so I didn’t get to take any pictures of that but I did snag some of a very special moment that happened afterward.
Yup, I am engaged!
LOL – okay, my little sister is engaged. I just can’t believe it. We got the entire thing on video and it was so sweet. Her fiance not only asked my mom for permission, but got her to participate in the entire thing.
I pretended to vlog with my little sister (which we are definitely going to do in the future) and when we walked into the room, he got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes and then my mom got the gun…well the pellet gun to be precise. The look on my little sister’s face was priceless. Don’t worry, that was part of the plan and they hugged it out afterwards.
Then came a toast, hugs, kisses, and many, many well wishes.
Little man took a much-needed rest and missed most of the engagement festivities but got up just in time for the bonfire and fireworks.
I don’t think that these pictures really depict just how big those marshmallows were; they were easily the size of my palm and OH SO DELISH!
It was a wonderful weekend and I know my father was looking down at those beautiful fireworks and his ever growing family with a huge smile on his face.
