family weekend2

last weekend we met up with a bunch of the waldie clan for a wacky waldie wedding weekend. my cousin, alex, whom i'd not seen since my own wedding 8 years ago, was getting married in north carolina. it's not usual for that side of the family to get together, so we took advantage of the opportunity. and, man, we had a great time! we danced like crazy and laughed uproariously. i definitely vote that we do that more often!

we used cocktail hour to practice our dance moves! some of us couldn't WAIT to get on the dance floor.

don't we dress up nice?

we all wore black when everyone else was wearing flowers and bright colors. guess we didn't get the memo...
all the northerners all wore black

the next morning we were fortunate to be able to meet up with everyone for brunch.

apparently the night before was a little wild because the groom lost his shoes and my niece woke up with tattooed legs.

is 9 years old too young to have tattooed legs?
