Watkins Wedding Weekend...

My cousin Louisa Watkins, now Louisa Umphres was married last weekend in Dallas. It was an amazing weekend with our wonderful Watkins family. Here are the girl cousins at the bridal luncheon at the Zodiak Room at Neiman's downtown. Friday night, the rehearsal dinner was at the Dallas Aquarium. Louisa and Will wanted all of the little ones to be included in everything and they were so accomodating! They planned a Watkins family picture since it was basically a family reunion. So many aunts, uncles, cousins and cousin's babies came from everywhere to celebrate. Cant wait to see the photographer's picture since I could not get everyone in my shot.

Papa, Georgia, Graham and Dave
girl cousins
The kids (and adults) loved seeing all of the animals!
The kids had toys at their seats at the tables. AL LOVED these binoculars and wore them all weekend!
And they got fish shaped pizza for dinner while the adults had a delicious surf & turf!

Attempting to get a pic of the cousins (minus Georgia) but the little one in the black and white wasn't really cooperating. But Graham didn't seem to mind. Thank goodness Brooks has a good grip on him!

Saturday night we headed to the wedding, kids and all! Louisa and Will were once again so accomodating providing nursery rooms for all of the kids so the adults could sit and enjoy the ceremony. It was wonderful!

Barrett and Papa headed in looking good!
We quickly removed her from this area!
AL can't get enough of her Baby Georgia!
Cute Honey and Papa!
We then headed to the reception at the Arboreteum.The picture don't do it justice! Everything was beautiful! Lots of amazing details but it also had a casual flair to it with fajitas, barbecue and macaroni and cheese! A real Texas wedding for this Texas bride and groom. sister.It was sprite!
This was an artist in the corner of the room painting a scene of the reception. Amazing!

LOTS of dancing all night long!!
Anna Lou kept those arms in the air quite a bit!

Uncly Jimmy/Father of the Bride/The Pediatrician had to get his hands on those babies! He and Honey did some rockin' to get these babies to sleep.

The band was awesome!

It was such a fun night celebrating a wonderful couple! The babies did great staying up late! Graham finally crashed about 10p.m. on Dave's shoulder and Anna Lou held on the entire time. She was sad to leave! My Aunt Margaret, Uncle Jimmy and cousin Louisa put on quite an event!!!!

Welcome Home and Lions Spring Game...

My sister Wendi and her three kids flew in town all the way from Doha, Qatar for the summer! Yippee!! They are finally here! We haven't seen them since Christmas! Nick, my bro-in-law made it too a few days later! We got to meet our new baby niece Georgia! First of MANY rides on the jeep at Honey and Papa's house.
These two are perfect playmates! Two peas in a pod!
Even G got a ride, with Daddy close by!
Thursday night was the Lions spring football game. The Junods all came with us so the boys could see a little Texas football since they won't be here in the fall when the season gets started.

AL did a lot of jumping and clapping every time the cheerleaders would cheer. Such a difference in a few months! Last fall she didn't really even notice them and now she is all about it!
Sweet Brooks is all about Baby Graham.
Watching Uncle Dave and the Lions!
