Some more wedding pictures

Ok, so my grandpa sent me some pictures he took of the wedding and so I'm going to share them with all of you.

This is my Uncle Joe playing and singing while guests were arriving.
 This is my Uncle John and Tom before the wedding began.
 I love the look of anticipation on Tom's face. Dakotah and I at this point were walking down the stairs/isle so I'm sure he was getting super excited for his beautiful bride to come down next.
 The kiss! :)
 Mr. and Mrs. Kincaid! The shawl around my mom was put around her durring their ceremony. It's a tartan and is the Kincaid clan colors and Tom put it around her to signify her becoming part of the Kincaid clan. It was cool!
 My Aunt Marlene and my Oma (in the red). My Oma wore her red cape to cover up her big rods in her wrist.
 It seems to be so difficult to get this many people to look at the camera all at once so you get what looks like me scolding my kids :).
 Once again, asking a lot of this many people to look all at once but this one is of the couple and their kids which I need my family to fill in my mom's side or I'd be a loner :).
 My Oma's favorite song is Brown Eyed Girl so we requested it for her, I wheeled her out on the dance floor and we all danced around her while she shimmied in her chair and sang her song. It was one of the high lights of the night for me!
 This is 4 of the 5 of my Oma's kids. Left to right: Uncle Joh (5), Aunt Marlene(1), my momma(4) and Uncle Joe(3).
The first dance. I LOVE how happy and intimate my mom looks in this picture. She was beaming and at the same time passionate. I'm sure there will be more to come once the photographer gets us our picture cd. I heard from her there are lots of great ones of my family, apparently we were the most popular and entertaining of the evening. :)

It was a beautiful ceremony and a great reception. We had so much fun and I'm blessed to have been a part of it all!

Boys day out and Girl's pre wedding morning

Saturday after rehearsal the guys went off to a baseball game while the girls had a bridal shower (sorry no pics of the shower, I was too busy catching up with family). It was bat day so the guys got there early, got full size bats (not the dinky ones they usually give out) and hung out enjoying themselves.
 Papa (Tom) getting a feel for a new Camaro and thinking it could due for him and mom.
 My boys and the A's mascot.
 Dakotah, Conner (my new littlest brother) and Colby, excited they got a foul ball.
 Luke (my other little brother, the older one) enjoying some good park food.
 Dakotah with the catch of the day. He didn't catch it but a guy in their group did and gave it to him which made him s excited.

Saturday night my girls and I stayed in a hotel with my mom so we could wake up and have the room for ALL us girls to get ready in. I was so excited we did this. My girls got to experience room service for the first time and watched as all us gals ran around getting our hair and make up done and they got to have their hair done too thanks to Olivia.
 I love this picture, asking the bride how shes doing this morning of her wedding. :)

 Madi and Auntie Mackenna (my new youngest sister) resting between make up and hair

 The bride getting her hair done beautifully.
Caitlin (my older new younger sister) getting her make up done.
It was a great morning! Relaxed and so fun!

San Francisco (a lengthy one in pictures)

Thursday of our vacation in California we went and ran around San Francisco. I had been looking forward to this day for a long time to take my family to one of my fondest places growing up. We had a blast at Fisherman's Wharf and mostly at Pier 39. We saw the sea lions, looked out at Alcatraz, the kids rode the carousel I rode when I was a child, we ate at Bubba Gumps, we goofed around, went to Pier 45 to look at the old naval sub and ship, we could see Coit Tower from there, then headed down to the Golden Gate bridge where we were able to walk down to Fort Point (part of the old base), walk out onto a dock, and play in the sand on a little beach area where my husband managed to miss judge a wave and soaked his shoes. It was a wonderful day and after all the walking we jumped in the car, drove past Lumbard St. which we couldn't stop to get a good look at the crooked street, then I showed the kids and Rodney where my Grammy used to live and I would visit many weekends as a child, then we drove in the heart of down town where the kids were able to knock their heads back and look up at real sky scrapers! It was great!
