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.
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 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.
Reconnecting with family meant a lot to all of us. I sure hope I don't have to wait another 50 years.
