Last week I flew home for my cousin Joe's wedding. He married one of the sweetest, most beautiful girls, and I am so happy to have her in our family! The wedding could not have been more fun! My family (extended included) always ends up being the last ones on the dance floor. I guess we don't care about looking crazy and letting loose once the deal is done. :) Fortunately, our new family member is quite uninhibited when it comes to dancing, too!
Before the wedding, the family and I got to head over to the city and check out Fisherman's Warf, Ghirardelli Sqaure, and eat at Bubba Gumps. We didn't get to visit Alcatraz or ride a trolley car, but hopefully we'll get to that on a future trip!
On Saturday we headed up to Oakdale, CA, to have lunch and an ice cream social at Christy's family ranch. The the weather and scenery were so beautiful! We had fun exploring the ranch, checking out the cows and chicken dens, and enjoying our last day together.
Although the trip was amazing, it wasn't entirely complete without my hubby there. This handsome man had to stay back for quizzes both on Thursday and Friday. I was doing pretty well without him until the dj asked for a couples dance at the wedding, and I was left sitting alone wishing ( crying ) he was with me. I miss the days of undergrad when you could leave whenever you wanted to, and makeup quizzes and tests if you had a good enough reason. At least he's doing what he's always dreamed of though! So proud of him!
Overall, the weekend was amazing and I had the best time with my family. They really are the most fun people I know. I'm so glad we get chances like these to get together and just hang out and enjoy each other. Love them!!
