He did. and so did She.

My beautiful cousin, the man who reminds me so much of my father back in the day, got married yesterday to his gorgeous bride, Nikki. And in the process became Daddy to one exhuberant little princess named Carmen.

I love weddings and this one w
as truly beautiful. To see this little group officially become a family...to see the beaming smile that stayed on Nikki's face the entire day....to see how my cousin looked at his new bride...well, it was something special, for sure. It was a gorgeous setting (right on Rough River Lake), there was plenty of dancing and then there was cake...you know, gotta love a good wedding cake! ;)

And it was so fabulous to be around that side of the family for a happy occassion again and many of them had never seen Carson at all, or all three of my boys together in one place. And they were a hit. They discovered sliding accross the dance floor on their knees all by themselves, but when Uncle Kevin showed them how to breakdance and spin on the floor on their back, well it was all over. *sigh* lol Fun for all ages!

Here's a few highlights of the wedding. Please forgive the grainess of the photos! Congrats to the Ballingers!
