Once again we had a lazy week with a fully jam-packed weekend. My cousin was getting married, so we packed up the car for an overnight trip to New Braunfels. Thus began a 24-hour period with cousins, crawfish, dancing, nice clothes, waterfowl, and electronics.
We began by checking into what turned out to be a palatial room accidentally rented by my father through some series of odd misunderstandings. We set our things out and unsuccessfully tried to get the boys to take a nap before abandoning the place to seek out some cousins.
The kids hung around and showed off their electronics for a while before we noticed that it was time to start getting everyone dressed.
The bus arrived to take us to the event venue (my aunt’s house on the river) shortly thereafter. The boys were surprised and quite happy to discover that we’d be riding on a school bus.
Food was passed around, drinks were had, and at some point the band started to play music. This gave the boys an opportunity to make up for having to be quiet and stand still through the entire wedding ceremony.
Photos don’t really do it justice. Unfortunately I was standing far too close to the band when I shot this video so all the audio got completely blown out. I have replaced it with a nice clear version of the song that was playing at the time.
Christy eventually stepped out onto the dance floor to get in on the fun.
The entire wedding was great, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Eventually we had to turn in, but we had an after-party to attend in the morning before we headed out of town.
We found out there was a kids room upstairs, so I decided to let them enjoy what was a tradition in my childhood for quite some time.
We spent some time visiting and eating before hopping back into the car to make the trek back home. It was a good weekend for the kids, for sure.

Owen has quite the personality these days.
See you next time!
