A Family Wedding

Sunday morning Petey, my sister, Lisa, and I drove up north to Crystal Mountain Resort for a family wedding.  My cousin, Scott McDonald's, son, Tavis married a beautiful young woman named, Maureen.
Absolutely everything about the time up there was fantastic.
The resort itself was great.  Our accommodations were very comfortable.
We didn't have a lot of time after we'd checked in before we had to hurry off to the chair lift.  Yes, that's right - we had to take a chair lift TO THE TOP OF THE SKI SLOPE for the ceremony!  Petey and I have never been on one.
It was thrilling but not terrifying.  We were proud of ourselves for not squealing like little girls.
Once we arrived safely on top we entertained ourselves by watching others get off the lift.  Especially the girls in 5 inches heels - and, of course, the bride.
The reception afterward was great.  The food was very tasty and the carrot wedding cake was a surprise and yummy.
The absolute best part of the entire time was hanging with our cousins.  We see, Scott, on the right, once a year when he brings my mom's brother and sister-in-law to meet us for lunch but we haven't seen our cousin, Richard, on the left for many, many years.  We did a lot of hugging - and laughing.
That's my sister, Lisa, next to me.  She looks like that because she had just snorted she was laughing so hard.  We didn't have another opportunity for a second picture.  Oh, well.
Reconnecting with family meant a lot to all of us.  I sure hope I don't have to wait another 50 years.
