I am linking with Beverly for Pink Saturday at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
They all flew in and attended my youngest daughter, Tina's wedding. This is part of my Pink Sat. contribution. Tina's wedding colors were champagne, brown and dusty rose so my gown had pink beads on the top. Elsie's wearing a pink shawl too.
I am sharing the very first one with you. This was the most memorable in my opinion. I am sure most of them will agree. We rented a beach house in Destin but we all met at my daughter's home in the Tampa Bay area. I rented a mini van that can sit 8 people but trying to fit all the luggage for 8 people was the real challenge. We had to buy a canvas luggage carrier to put above the van to carry the excess baggage. Gatchie who is the most energetic and now an Internal Medicine doctor, is the one organizing the stuff on top of the van.
The ride did not seem long because we had so much fun and all you could hear inside the van was laughter and music.
Below is the beach house. It is a duplex and we occupied the right side. It had a bedroom with a queen size bed and a loft with 2 full size beds and a sofa bed in the living room. The nice thing about it was it was right on the beach. You go down from the stairs and step right into sand. We could hear the waves of the water from the house and it was so relaxing especially when it was time to go to bed.
We took early morning walks on the beach.
and enjoyed the breathtaking view from the balcony!
I was the organizer and I had activities lined up every minute of the day. Of course that included relaxation, shopping and bonding time too. We played Guesstures and Scrabble.
Shown below is Nel doing the Limbo rock while Emilie, who studied to be a Pathologist and is working as a Cytologist now, held the stick. Emilie is someone who is very loving, very motherly and is an excellent homemaker. She cooks for us and is always cleaning and straightening up the house.
Jazmine taught us how to hula and belly dance and it was so hilarious. I couldn't take still photos cause I was dancing with them but we have videos.
And Tess, the facial expert shown here with Lyla, the Anaesthesiologist, gave free facials. Tess also is our joke teller. All she has to do is open her mouth and she can keep us laughing in stitches.
We ate at Fuddpuckers. See the colorful building? It has a lot of pink so more pink contribution here.
And at night before we would turn into our own beds, we would just all stay together and bond. Oh what fun times! I love you guys and I miss you! When is our next reunion?
