Kayla and Caleb 6.11.16

My youngest cousin, Kayla, got married this past weekend, and we had so much fun celebrating! 8 of the 12 grandkids came, mine and Patty's kids acted like wild animals {reminds me of my childhood at weddings}, and everything was so perfect.

To say I've always loved this girl is an understatement!

I don't have a good picture on my laptop of Kayla in our wedding.
But here she is in 2004 at 14 as a junior bridesmaid.
{Also pictured: my good friend, Angela. Hi Angela!}

Unfortunately, it isn't really fashionable to ask your 35 year old cousin to be a bridesmaid, but Kayla did ask me to read during the ceremony, so I definitely felt special. {grin} Blair was the flower girl and was especially cute!

I didn't get any pictures during the ceremony but stole this one from Facebook.

Now let the party begin! The reception was decorated very shabby chic, and I thought everything turned out great.

We spent quite a bit of time hitting up the candy bar!

I can guess what my dad is thinking: I'm so glad I didn't have to pay for this one!'
Or: ''

It's totally normal to lay on a dirty hall floor and have your cousins sit on you.

Even the pretty flower girl joined in the shenanigans!

First dance!

Our original foursome {Brent refused to take pictures with me ALL night!}


Poor Mayer just couldn't hang.

Oh wait! He found his second wind.

And with that, it was time to load these hooligans up and head home! I think Brent and I have the only 2 children in the world who DON'T typically fall asleep in the car when it's past their bedtime. No, our 2 talked the whole way home {even thought it was 10:30 at night} and took a while to settle down! This pregnant lady felt terrible on Sunday - and we get to do this all over again on July 2 for Kayla's brother's wedding - can't wait to celebrate Ryan and Kristen, too!
