Britt (my brother John's daughter) and Beth (my brother Carl's daughter) doing whatever they're doing!
Beth being her cute self in John's kitchen.
Britt, me and a pineapple (compliments of Beth--thank you for adding the fruit, you crazy girl!)
Phyllis (the bride-to-be) and Britt sharing the love.
Britt and Beth as always, cute as can be. They ARE living Dolls after all! In other words, their last name is Doll, as mine was before I married. Awesome, huh?
Ryan, Britt, Beth and Jared, first cousins looking good.
Carl (my younger brother) and Ryan by the fire pit in John's back yard beside the Rock River.
Carl, Ryan, John (my youngest brother), Britt and Beth chilling out in the light of the fire.
Beth, Phyllis, Lon (my husband) and Tom (my oldest brother) enjoying the evening by the river. If you're curious about what Lon is doing, I'll explain. He's adding a lime slice to his bottle of Corona with a special techique he learned from Jared. I prefer to just force the slice of lime down into the upright bottle. Oh well, to each his own.
Ryan, Carl, Drew (Carl's second son), John, Britt and Beth watching the sparks fly.
The weekend pre-wedding festivities began in earnest on Friday afternoon.
My brother-Tom, my brother-Carl, Carl's sons-Ryan and Drew, Carl's daughter-Beth and Ryan's wife-Sarah and baby girl-Abigail all arrived from Michigan on Friday afternoon at my brother-John's home.
Lon, Jared and I joined the family for fun, dinner and a bonfire by the river.
My next post will include Saturday's activities with more family, fun and festivities.
(You can relax. I promise there won't be a quiz on names).
