|ready to roll... California here we come!|
A day and a half driving down,
2 full days there
and a day and half driving back home.
|picnic lunch in the car|
2 motel stays,
countless poddy stops,
3 nights in the vacation condo,
breakfast and lunches with family,
a little downtime lounging by the pool and enjoying the sunshine!
|forgot to pack a swimsuit but dangling my feet was almost as much fun.|
visit to the nail salon,
dinner with old friends,
and of course, one magnificent wedding and reception.
There was also a special component at breakfast one morning
that featured color enhanced cupcakes to reveal the gender
of a baby-on-the-way !
|it's gonna be a boy!!|
|mother of the bride and the bride getting pedi's|
|this is the unique and very fun program used for the wedding!|
|filling in the crossword puzzle using these clues, informed us about the bridal party!|
|all the guests got one along with cute little souvenir pencils. |
here my two niece-in-laws work their puzzles while waiting for the wedding to begin.
|HERE COMES THE BRIDE!|
followed by her supportive parents.
|mr and mrs newlywed!|
|Kimberly and Andy|
|my sister and her beautiful family|
|sunset along the freeway|
It was a whirlwind trip and the festivities were fun.
The wedding was lovely; the bride even lovelier.
Connecting with family, old friends and making new ones
was all part of the plan and
everyone came away full.
