Wedding festivities

My big sis got engaged this year and that meant a fun bachelorette party and a very memorable wedding! 

First the bachelorette party...  A bunch of us met up in Coeur d'Alene, ID (my little sister Amanda lived there at the time) and it was perfect.  We spent the day at the beach laying out at the sun, drinking cocktails, and telling funny stories.  Next we all got ready at Amanda's house and set up things for the evening.  We had a nice spread of food and drinks and played some pretty hilarious games.  We then headed downtown for some dancing - and topped the evening off with a pit stop at Denny's (we're classy!!).

Now on to the memorable wedding.  We all went camping, yes camping!  They decided to "Take the Plunge" - Christy and Cam got married on a rock surrounded by their kids and then they all jumped off a rock into Banks Lake.  It was perfect!  Afterwards they had a reception at the campground and served up pulled pork sandwiches and some great side dishes - even homemade brewed beer!  The campground had a live band playing that night, so we all danced, drank and had a great time!

I couldn't be happier for my sister - she's so happy and Cam is a really great guy.  The entire weekend was a great excuse to see all the family and watch my sister marry her best friend. 

And on a side note - the kids had a blast!  They got to swim in the lake, play with cousins, get doted on by grandparents, go boating, eat tons and tons of great food and sleep in!!
