Needless to say? It was a jam-packed weekend!
Ok, ok, ok... so let's start at the beginning...
The main occasion for the whole trip was my cousin Dave's wedding! My mom and I went together (unfortunately my dad couldn't make it...) and we stayed with my Aunt Carol and Uncle John. And so the adventure begins...
Mom put $5 in a video slot machine at our gate and 10 minutes later walked away with $198!!!
.... I made a $5 donation to Lobstermainia..... (@#$%^&....)
Ok so today was a travel day.... not a whole lot happened! Moving on!
After breakfast, Aunt Carol, Mom, and I went to Stephanie (the then bride-to-be) and Dave's house to visit and "help" with the flower arrangements!
(I made the little one there in front...) :)
Steph's mother, aunts, sister, and best friend were all around to help out and so we had a great time spending a few hours with them.
After heading home to Aunt Carol's for a bit (cue snacks and lounge chairs on the patio), it's time for the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner!
I managed to get this GREAT photo of Dave, Stephanie, Aunt Carol, and Uncle John! One of the best from the weekend for sure...
At the restaurant, we had out own little alcove all to ourselves - just perfect!
And the view of Lake Mission Viejo? You couldn't beat it...

After a big pancake breakfast, Uncle John took us all to Lake Mission Viejo for a little boat ride and to soak up some sun. We had a nice time puttering around, looking at the houses, and chatting. Want to see some photos? I thought so...
(Same deal... play button...) :)
(you know the drill...)
Ok! (*shakes out of it*) Back to studying! :P
