The wedding shower…

a-1

Turns out that wedding showers involve drinking…

a-2

Fancy drinking. Most of these pictures were taken by Mollie, our 17-year-old… because, being a man, I wasn’t allowed to be at the wedding shower.

a-3

My wife went all out. That is a strawberry/mango mimosa… oh, yeah.

a-4

She also made macaroons… from scratch…

a-5

And I already mentioned the flowers she made by dying coffee filters with food coloring, right?

a-6

That took her a week.

a-7

The mixer is sort of an inside joke. We have been planning on giving Jessica a good mixer for her wedding since she was like a teenager.

Upon reflection… (because ‘wet dreams’ would just be tacky) part 63 …

Sometimes, art is all about finding a new angle, a new perspective.

My godson loves me… wait… where did my butt go???

a-1

Well, I was going to start this post with some sappy comment about how magical it is when a kid spontaneously grabs your hand because they love you… but then, I nabbed this picture off Big Johnny’s Facebook feed, and saw what I look like from behind now… which is basically behindless… I mean, my family have been telling me I don’t have a butt anymore, but I didn’t believe them… I was sitting on something…

a-2

Anyway, while the wedding shower for my older daughter was going on at the house, us menfolk had to vacate the premises. We took Willie to the park… yes, the same one I took little Olivia to last week. Good eye!

a-3

When you are a dad, you end up eating a lot of invisible food… and cakes made out of sand. Big Johnny is a good dad.

a-4

William, who is now four-and-a-half, is quite a character.

a-5

He was just running around with his sweater pulled over his head. Johnny and I were making ‘Cornholio’ jokes… (if you never saw Beavis and Butthead, don’t worry about it)

a-6

So the girls were having fun, and we were having fun.

a-7

I call that a win/win situation.

So, yeah… wedding shower at our house this weekend!

a-1

We are on the final countdown for Jessica, my older daughter, and Jason, my future-son-in-law, to get hitched. A little over a month.

a-2

So our house was full of love this weekend.

a-3

It was also full of homemade snacks!

a-4

Oh, and homemade flowers, that my wife made, by using food coloring to dye coffee filters and then scrunching them together.

a-5

Oh, yeah.

a-6

And Big Johnny and Eva drove all the way to San Diego from the Bay Area, so I got to spend some quality time with my godson, William. More to follow.

Okay, who knows what city that is?

Hint… that might not be a waterfront… remember, I can put the reflecting water anywhere I want!

If you are playing ‘name that city’, this should be an easy one… but the next one won’t be.

Let’s add some cities to this series! It is still a gentle nod to global warming, but it looks pretty. And we can play ‘name that city’!

Feel free to suggest your favorite city.
