Well, it hadn’t happened to me yet so I guess I was due for a lapse in blogging. The combination of a new job, lots of house improvement projects, perfect weather for gardening and other outside activities and still adjusting to life in Tucson, has left me with a complete lack of motivation to document anything.
So here I am again. I will try to catch up on the past events for the last month and a half.
Austin’s cousin got married and we drove up to Parker, Arizona to see it first hand. We drove up with Austin’s brother Matt and sister Amy. Our first stop was Lake Havasu where we saw the London Bridge. Pretty silly that they brought it all the way to Arizona, but it makes for a good picture.
Next up the wedding. Seeing as how I had never been to Parker, I was not sure of what to expect. As we arrived we soon realized that we were for sure over dressed for the occasion. For the first time in my life I felt like a true city folk. Ha. And I am from Tucson. The truth is no one cared.
Regardless the wedding was beautiful. The boys all wore bolero ties, and cowboy hats, and even the dog was dressed up. So cute.
The reception was at the local casino. Water slides, gambling, night club, quincineras, everything was going on at the Blue Water Casino. We got lots of time with family which was great. The flower center pieces were grown on the Buckelew farms. So pretty. The reception was rowdy and full of country dancin. You had to pay for soda but the Bud Light was flowin free all night long. It was a hoot!
At least next time I will know to bring my boots and hat.
