Whispers Of The Morning

a soft whisper spoken from my heart

a wedding, a stormy cookout and a snake

Posted by Dawn on July 24, 2006

I don’t usually cry or get emotional at weddings, but Saturday it almost got to me.  I did get a little teary eyes a few times.

 The bride was absolutely beautiful.  Her wedding party was amazing, the groom’s eyes just sparkled, the flower girl was adorable, and the ringer bearer (my nephew Hunter) was bribed to be good.

I remember when the groom was born.  It was great seeing his older brother and his sister again.  His mom and dad divorced when they were younger, but the groom still went to church in Utica.  His older brother and younger sister have moved out of state so it was great seeing them again.

I remember when the bride and groom started dating.  They were perfect for each other and so cute together so it was awesome to be a part of their day.  I got there around 8:00 to help take “fun” pictures and to help Jenn with Hunter.  We played cars and trucks all day.  My nephew is so spoiled on my way in I talk to him and he’s like what you bringing me Aunt Dawn.  Yikes so we made a deal.  If he’s good during the wedding I buy him a toy.  Wanna guess how many people made the same deal with him???  It was like Christmas for that kid.  He’s got a toy car from me, his mom and dad got him a toy truck and boat, my mom and dad are letting him pick something out, his other grandparents got him a walkie talkie, the bride got him toys, the groom has promised to take him on a ride in the fire truck, the grooms dad is also taking him for a ride in the fire truck and he gets to push the horn.

So the wedding was great, beautiful, and it was an all around great day!  And the rain held off until after the reception!

So speaking of rain…anytime we have a cookout it rains.  We still had a good turn out for the cookout.  Patt loved his cake and enjoyed his birthday weekend.  The fun came when some friends came in and told him there was a snake in the carport.  Well, Patt’s still a kid and couldn’t wait to play with the snake.  He even brought that thing into my house!  It’s harmless it’s just a grass snake.  Hence the key word, it’s a snake!!!  There’s no such thing in my mind as a harmless snake!  So they took it out and released it in the field in the backyard.

Overall really great weekend, no major fighting just a lot fun!!!

    In my mind, no snake is a good snake! Can’t stand them and would go nuts if it was in my house! Sounds like a good weekend.

    Sounds like fun – Hunter is a sharp kid to wrangle toys out of that many people. 🙂 Ugh. No such thing as a harmless snake – totally agree with you on that! I’m glad they let it go in the back, hopefully it’ll just stay out there from now on. 🙂

    Glad you had such a good weekend. Hunter is a very smart boy, to be “working” all the adults that way! 🙂

    I almost didn’t read the entire post because of the word “snake” in the title – ack! The only good snake to me is a dead snake. If someone had brought it into my house to “play” with it, I would have had a huge, terrible, fit and probably have to be put into a straight-jacket. You showed considerable restraint, I’d say!

    I bet you need some rest after your busy weekend, huh?! 🙂

  4. Yeah!!! I am glad that your cookout turned out to be a hit.

    Glad to hear the wedding went well also. I just love weddings 🙂

    Your nephew sounds like a smart kid! The two weddings I’ve been in so far this summer have made me cry! And I have one to go, which I’m sure will make me cry as well! I guess they just make me emotional! Have a good one girl!
