We had a fun weekend. Today is Brody's parents 40th wedding anniversary, and Saturday night they had a big party and renewed their vows. His parents live in the country on some land with their horses, and they have a really pretty grove of trees where we all stood and listened to their renewal. 

It was pretty warm, and right before things got started, Brody was helping take food down to the tent and spilled grease all down the front of his shirt and onto his jeans. Thankfully, his brother Casey just happened to have an extra shirt! Poor guy. (I still think he looks cute)
Sorry this picture is so bad, but it was getting pretty dark. Here are Brody's parents at the "altar"
I should have taken a picture of the food. It was so GOOD! Barbeque, potato salad, cole slaw, rolls, pasta...and a delicious cake for dessert. YUM! Jaime got to come, but Beck was supposed to have his end of the season soccer party, so Ben had to stay behind to take the boys to that. Unfortunately, Beck was running fever, so they had to skip his party :(
I meant to take pictures of everything, but it seems so hard to do when you're eating and visiting...and eating some more-ha! Here are my sweet parents. Don't they look great?! They are celebrating 41 years of marriage June 1. Happy Anniversary guys~ 
I know this looks like a random picture, but here's a little back story. Brody and I went to high school together but we didn't know each other. I was on the dance team and he played tennis. We used the same parking lot and on more than one occasion, I remember seeing this hideous orange VW "Thing" (that really is it's name...a Thing). I would say, "Who in the world drives that thing?! It's SO ugly!" Well...about 9 years later Brody and I meet and start dating and I realize it was HIM! He drove that nasty car to school in high school! And miracle of all miracles, it still runs and his parents use it at their place. I don't know how many miles that car has stopped working at 357,000!!!
