One week before Jacob's birthday, he got sick. He was tired with a fever and no other symptoms. No big deal, or so we thought. Then comes his birthday is he's still running a fever with a nasty cough. So we finally take him in to see the doctor, who wanted an X-ray, which then confirmed that he had pneumonia. Yikes. He was out of school for an entire week. Classmates made him birthday/get well cards, which was really thoughtful. He finally semi-recovered by Sunday and I took him, his brothers and cousins to Monster Jam for his birthday. What a week.
Another weekend, another wedding. Who gets married during Super Bowl weekend? My friend Johnny, that's who. I've known him since we began pharmacy school together... nearly 17 years ago! And I had the honor of being one of his groomsmen. The wedding festivities were all in Galveston, St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica (ceremony) and Hotel Galvez (reception), which was a good thing considering Houston was crazy congested with the Super Bowl in town.
Last weekend we headed to Austin for Mel and Dan's wedding. It was like a mini family reunion. Relatives who I only get to see maybe once every few years were there. They came from far and wide for this one night. It was an awesome ceremony. And any reason to go to Austin is awesome.
On Saturday Lynn's cousin got married and the big boys were the ring bearers. They were looking quite dapper. They did fine and the ceremony went off without a hitch. At night was the reception and it was time to party... for the kids. They had their own table (the kids table) and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They were left to their own devices. I didn't care. As long as they didn't bug us or cause trouble, they were free to do whatever they wanted. And I ended up taking more pictures of the (wild) kids than of the bride and groom.
