An Abundance of Mendenhalls and Cupcakes...

I come from a very small family. Not many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces or nephews. Family Christmases are small and I have enough place settings to accommodate Thanksgiving dinner. Insert the in laws...Dave comes from a big family. His dad has 3 brothers, 2 sisters, and Dave has many, many cousins. He and his cousin Bailey are only months apart in age and grew up together. I think that is SO fun!

This weekend, we had the privilege of going to Arkansas to celebrate with Bailey as he got married. I probably drove everyone crazy playing paparazzi, but it's not often you can get all of the Mendenhall's in one room. Well, almost all...we were missing one family as one of Dave's Aunts couldn't make the trip, but for the most part, the whole gang was there. Here are a few (or a lot) of pictures from the weekend!
The happy couple at the rehearsal dinner
Another happy couple :) Me and my boo
How cool is this Wordle Lisa's mom made?
Dave and Kate with their cousin Bailey (the groom)
This is probably my favorite picture of the entire weekend. Dave's grandad with two of his grandsons. So sweet. Sy has the biggest smile on his face.
Dave and his grandad
And it's official! Mr. and Mrs. Mendenhall!
Edible centerpieces! They were SO good...I had two....
I thought the hot dog cart was such a cute idea!
The cake was darling! They love to travel. So creative!
Are they not the cutest?? They are brothers and best buds!
Me and Kate, my sister in law
I love (insert sarcasm) that my husband is egging on the CHILDREN to eat straight off the fruit tray...plates are so overrated...(His mom says he's my responsibility now.)
Don't worry that as we were taking this picture he burped....

THE END! :)
