Our family enjoyed the wedding of The BG’s youngest brother this Saturday. It was filled with touching moments for me because David was still a youngster when The BG and I met. The bride (Jennifer) was beautiful and so was the wedding. I must say I had forgotten how handsome the BG looks in a Tux!! (whistle)
The reception was held outdoors at the brides’ parents’ home and let me tell you it was HOOOOOT. I felt like I was melting all day…..and the cake actually was!!!! They had to cut the cake as soon as dinner was over because it was falling over from the heat!
The thriller dance went well! When I get my hands on the video I will post it. We were amoung the last to leave that evening and our girls were the last ones on the dance floor!
Then it was early to rise for me Sunday to go on the Battle Creek Garden Tour with my Mom and my Aunt Donna. Mom and I have gone every year for the past 6 years. It is so fun to walk through peoples gardens and enjoy their hard work.
Here is the first home which was MASSIVE:
Their garden was modeled after European gardens that they enjoy visiting. They had alot of “water features” that were planted instead of having running water.
I thought this was a cute idea! She had these angels climing up the tree in her back yard.
This was my favorite garden. This woman and her husband had THE CUTEST stuff. They had about 10 different garden themes packed into a little yard. They had a “zen garden” and “whimsical garden” and sooo much more.
One of my favorite parts of the garden tour is to spot all the little “nick-nack” things people tuck into their gardens, and let me tell you, this lady had of TON of little treasures tucked all around: garden tools, old chairs, mirrors, stones, bricks, driftwood, bunnies…OHHH it was so fun!!
She had two of these bunnie topiaries planted. She her whiskers? hehehe
She was going to throw this table out because the legs had started to rot and it was tippy…instead they painted it and planted all four legs in little planter boxes!!
Look at this guys “head of hair”
These bricks say, “Grandma’s favorite flowers” and with all the grandchildrens names carved into the bricks:
One of the interesting things about this next familys’ garden is that they use pine needles as mulch. She had it all in her beds and walkways. It smelled soo good and was so soft to walk on. And the best part she said was that it’s freeeeeee!
I took a ton more pictures, but I think I might blow up your computer if I post them all =)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!
Later Gators!! Melissa
