Instead of having a traditional rehearsal "dinner", we just had a big fiesta in my dad's back yard. Since almost everyone was coming from out of town we thought it was silly to just invite the wedding party, so everyone was invited! It was fiesta themed in honor of San Antonio and the week of fiesta that occurs annually in SA. We had some truly fantastic Mexican food made by a friend of Bren's mom. I'm drooling just thinking of it... the beans, the fajitas! So good. And of course too much cerveza was consumed, but that's just how it is in my family. And when we're all together we're pretty unstoppable.
Calm before the storm
My dad surprised us with these AWESOME koozies, on one side it says "Marie & Brendon" and has brushes and paint for me...
and on the other it says "Brendon & Marie" and it has a pharmacy, Rx thingy for Brendon!
Of course there were animals aplenty. My step mom's mini-donkeys were loving all the attention.
The newest additions to the Brooks-farm, baby turkeys!
The long horned neighbors stopped by
Our fiesta hats!
Bren and little bro AJ
My sister and my neice!
Pinata time! Yes, that is our officiant, and very good friend, Derek waiting in line for a chance to smack the pinata.
Derek didn't stand a chance, AJ knocked that sucker out.
Brendon got dunked in the pool with help from his friends and a little assistance from me.
So of course, I was next.
No better way to end the night than with a little pre-wedding man love.
In other news, we have been back home for almost a week and things are just starting to feel normal, but it wont be for long! Our living room is full of boxes waiting to be packed. Booo packing is the worst. Not looking forward to it, but it needs to be done. We move two weeks from tomorrow, ahhhh! Exciting stuff!
