Other Noteworthy Wedding Events

Obviously my mother's wedding was the main event of our trip back home - but there were a few other moments that, to me, were blog-worthy.

1. Greg wore pants...TWICE. This is a big deal in my family. He is often referred to as, "The guy in the shorts and flip flops," mid February, so I had to document it.

My little sister, Sarah, belted out an amazing version of "At Last," by Etta James. People were quite shocked that such a little thing could sing something so huge.
We had dinner with my Dad at my favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory. {Seriously, how cute is little Evan?!}


My older brother, Dan, showed us that Mentos and Diet Coke don't mix, but the result really isn't "stand 100 yards back in raincoats" worthy.

Rob and I took this picture:
After seeing it, I said, "Rob! Why can't you ever really smile for any of our pictures?! I have a million pictures of this same face!" He looked at me and said, "Then why do you keep taking it?!" (I have secretly enjoyed that comment all week. I love this guy.)

I was able to spend some time with my friend of 14 years, Mary. We then took the worst picture of all time...so I've deemed it not-blog-worthy.

Oh, and I caught this video of Greg showing off his signature dance moves.


There is one more event that I am waiting for pictures of. I accidentally left my camera at my mom's house when we discovered that the front desk at our hotel would give out room keys to anyone. No I.D. necessary. All you had to say was, "I lost my room key." They'd then ask what room you were in, swipe a new key, and you were good to go. {Um, scary!} But for the first of many-to-come-family-travel pranks, it was awesome. I'll save that for my next post. By far, these were the best two days I've had in a long time!

You forgot to mention and airport lady and the police officer....I vote they are blog worthy. The trip was great. Can't wait for Mexico.

It must be a Wilson boy thing. They just can't smile for pictures. Looks like you had a blast. Yay for no kids.

Wilson Family said...

Glad you had fun! It's always nice to be around family. And that is so funny that you guys got eachother's room keys and pulled pranks! Makes you feel really safe in a hotel.

Your mom & David make a cute couple... Congratulations to them!

I'm so glad I married into Ryan's adopted family! Love the video of Greg. Really captures the moment. And it was a great moment. So good to see you guys again!

I love that face! It's his "I have a hiding place that no one can find me" in look...and he always does.

His question is a great example of male logic. It's outrageously on spot sometimes! (Shhhh...don't let that get out!)

Greg was HILARIOUS doing that dance. I laugh everytime I think of it. Funny how the quiet one cuts loose sometimes.
