A cowboy wedding

Jason's brother Darel recently got married and it was no surprise to anyone that he and Cassie were going to throw a great big cowboy wedding. Everyone in our little family was able to participate. Jason was a groomsman, Tyson the ring bearer and I got to play piano for the ceremony. As for the fetus, well...he/she just decided to have enough of a growth spurt to make the 12 hour drive extremely uncomfortable.

Tyson was so excited to wear his wedding clothes. The first thing he said was, "hey, I look like uncle Darel!" (he totally did).
He was a total trooper when he had to wait and wait for everyone else to get ready. (He was actually a trooper for the whole thing)
If you look closely, his belt says "Haak" on the butt. It was Jason's when he was little.

Of course, I remembered to get a picture of my two cowboys but forgot to get a family shot...turns out having pictures taken of myself at 34 weeks pregnant wasn't high on my to do list.
During pre-ceremony pictures Tyson found a few ways to entertain himself...
Of course the dinosaurs had to make an appearance.
And because I was too busy playing piano during the ceremony, I wasn't able to get any pictures of the couple. The only one I ended up with was from the reception.
Congrats Darel and Cassie!!!

temporary update

So this summer has disappeared almost as fast as my waistline and I still haven't improved my blogging frequency. We've been on the go quite a bit and this whole growing another human seems to have sucked some of my blogging mojo/energy up. We have one last trip to South Dakota for my brother-in-law's wedding and then I'll be free to start nesting. In the meantime, I thought I'd leave you with a couple of pictures from our recent trip to Minnesota. Tyson was able to play with all of his cousins (a rarity) and loved every second of it. I will include more pictures at a later date but for now this will have to do.

Because even badass superheroes have fun jammies.
