One of life's greatest pleasure is watching your children grow up. Our family has grown by 2 in the last month. First Drew and now Joe this weekend when he married my oldest niece Sarah Beth. I will have to go through all 200 pics I took, to narrow them down to share with you -but I decided to get us started on our 4 days of celebrating the marriage - and we did celebrate in true Brown style!!!! On Thursday night before we added all the wedding party and friends we decided it would be great to gather as a family at one of our favorite places - Perinis Steak House - world renown steaks and true West Texas atmosphere. We had a great time visiting and getting caught up with each others lives and of course everyone got to meet - Drew the first of the grand cousins!
Uncle Ben meets Drew - love at first sight. Drew has a way of melting everyones heart
Drew meeting Great Aunt Roseann -
Erica and Drew -no steak for Drew yet!
Friday night was the rehearsal and dinner. Joe chose Casa Herrara - great fajitas and great visiting with Sarah and Joes special friends.
The cousins with cousin Sarah Stuteville the last night she would use that name. Smiles were all around thinking about the next BIG day -
Sarah has always loved aprons and she gave her bridesmaids all an apron and wrap to wear at the outdoor reception the following night. Anna shows off her French apron - maybe becoming a French Pastry Chef is in her future?
The cousins all - what are they up to now?
Sarah had the DJ play "We are Family" at the reception for us all to dance to - it was one of the fun highlights for us all - Because we are birds of the same feathers like the song says and one big crazy family!
Tomorrow stay tuned for Wedding day - part 1 decorating- You will love it!
