Windy and Jeff’s Wedding Weekend…SATURDAY
First order of the morning – Mani! Pedi! ok girls…
Cynthia, Betsy, Angela, Beth, Christa, Windy, Charis, Rome, Anya, Cali
We three sisters have in total five children and those five children have nine children and they were All Here(!), all five children and their families coming from five different states: Trevor-Hawaii; Darryl-California; Lucas-Washington; Cynthia-Minnesota; Travis-Texas. No wonder they don’t get together so often.
The Blushing Bride!
Rome, Anya, Charis, Cali – the Four Flower Girls.
Cynthia, Betsy, Angela
And Kelly. Kelly? I’m sitting at the other end of the row of chairs and I hear ‘Darryl’s mother, raise your hand!’ so I do of course, and meet Kelly, one of Darryl’s colleagues from work.
Kelly and Angela looked familiar to each other and sure enough. How fun! Kelly offered warm congratulations to the Bride and Groom.
The plan was to have our lunchtime picnic at the beach but due to the inclement weather we had our picnic in the Rec Room.
Darryl, Lucas, Lilly
Christa and Caleb led the kids in many rousing games including Simon Says, Red Light Green Light, and the adults joined in for the crazy fun Ninja Tag.

What follows are the details of our five course Progressive Dinner.
The five first cousin-families each had their own two bedroom apartment at the Oakwood. We distributed food and decorations and we progressed for our dinner. At each stop the children provided entertainment on the theme of Love and Marriage.
First course, Canapés in the Aloha Room hosted by Trevor, Beth, Christa, Caleb, and Charis.

Third course, the Mac ‘n Cheese course (because what progressive dinner is complete without a Mac ‘n Cheese course?) in the Red and Silver Room hosted by Travis, Lainee, Cali, and Jack.
Jack and Lainee were feeling sick all day but thankfully they were both able to make it to dinner.
