Weekend in Pictures

We traveled down to Waycross for Big Steve and Keri's wedding this weekend. It was a great trip and a fantastic wedding. We were able to spend a lot of time with many of our college friends and I think it might be best to recap the weekend in pictures. My words won't do the weekend justice!

Friday night we went to the rehearsal dinner, which was fabulous. After the dinner we went to a local bar to celebrate with the bride and groom. This is the tame part of the evening.

This is Wes, he loves himself. He was so proud to pose for this picture with the mannequin wearing his outfit.

The Girls -- Audra, Becky, Sheri, Ashley, Me (pale as a ghost), and Rebecca

We literally tried about 15 times to get a good picture ... it just wasn't working for us that night!

The boys. I think this is the last tame photo that I have of any of them all weekend!

Before we left for the dinner, one of the locals at our hotel warned us that "the law is real bad in Waycross" so after an hour or so at the bar we figured it might be best to get back to the hotel if we wanted to continue our celebrations!

Becky DOES have clothes on, I swear!

Don't judge me for being so pale! Sheri is ridiculously tan and it makes me look awful

Just what they needed to do - shotgun beers!

No, Ben, you are not a pirate!

.... aaaaannnnd we're in the pool!

It was about 3 am when this pool picture was taken and I decided shortly thereafter that it was probably time I go to bed! So, this is the last photo from my camera for the evening!
The wedding was the next night and here is a little glimpse of how our night went!

Boxer shot - this is somewhat of a wedding tradition for many of Ben's friends

The Longmire family

I'm not sure what they were laughing at ... I must have said something funny!

Ben trying to get rid of his hiccups!

There are several stories from the weekend that I wish I could tell, but frankly most of them aren't PC so I'll have to refrain! That, and also I'm just too lazy to write anything witty today.

Congrats to Big Steve and Keri and thanks for a fun weekend!


Wes said...

Looks like I missed a good time at the pool. Glad no one got in any trouble with the law.

BWL said...

if you all only knew how bad Tracey dog cussed me to get rid of the hiccups you would be appalled....but it worked

defintiely a new method i haven't tried....hold your breath and have someone berate you about your hiccups

Becky said...

I think I was cussing the machine of the local Waycross, GA pizza place for not being open at 3:00 AM in that picture of me maybe or maybe not wearing clothes.

EquisBuffy said...

I am SO loving your pearls they are absolutely gorgeous!! Looks like good times were had all around.

Sarah said...

Great pictures Katie! Thanks for sharing them!

SoMi's Nilsa said...

Sometimes life is meant to be shared through pictures. Thanks for this photo-journalistic essay. Looks like you had a great time!

Team Thompson said...

I wish Josh would cheer up in that photo of all of us.

The Kuliseks said...

I swear that is the best way to get rid of hiccups is to yell at someone to hiccup...it is impossible.

Tracey said...

I must give props to Heather for introducing me to the hiccup-elimination technique in college. To this day it is the only thing that works with me. And I think I may have even invented a couple of new cuss words on Saturday night...

Erin said...

I can't even get the hicups anymore without having a mental picture of Heather up in my face cussing me out.

BWL said...

i will probably start crying the next time i get the hiccups when i have a flashback of how bad i got cussed out by tracey

Katie said...

Wes - That is what you get for passing out early!

BWL - That is Heather's method ... she's harsh but it really does work!

Becky - I still don't understand why the Waycross pizza joints aren't open at 2am.

EquisBuffy - Thanks! Those were a gift from Ben, actually. I think they added a touch of class to my night of excessive drinking!

Sarah - Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Nilsa - My words really wouldn't do the weekend much justice so I figured the pictures are the easiest way to tell my story!

Team Thompson - Josh is all rough all the time.

The Kuliseks - Yes! Tracey made sure to give you credit that night for teaching us this fool-proof method!

Erin - Me either!

Josh said...

I wish you would post a picture of the sexy outfit Becky was sporting at the pool. That's the real reason the pizza man didn't pick up the phone.
