Hey lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posting, we've been in Greece for about a week now on our annual summer vacation. The kids are finally over their jet-lag (thank God) because waking up at 4:30 am everyday for a whole week is less than awesome. We went to a huge wedding (almost 400 people) in the small town of Astros and had a great time with all our fam and friends. In fact almost 100 people came from Canada alone for the wedding...nothing like a 9 hour time change to bring home-town friends together!
One of these kids is not like the others... Mama's too tall and in need of a tan!
Up "the mountain" at the brides family home, starting off with some traditional dancing before heading down to the church for the ceremony
The tradition of walking the bride to the church to meet her groom
Arriving at the church
Joining the rest of the guest waiting for the wedding to begin
Inside the church during the ceremony
Waiting for the couple to exit the church, not all the guest "fit" inside the church so they waited outside!
The happy couple...they're married!
The get-away (Smart) car
At the reception dinner, traditional Greek desserts and candy coated Jordan almonds called" Boubounaries"
Mama feeling good after a few glasses of wine
The couple arrived to the party by boat!
The reception was outside by the water..dinner for 400!
The bride got the dancing started at around 1:00 am
The groom busted a move, dancing the traditional Zeibekiko dance
The wedding was a blast and of course we didn't make it back to our hotel until almost 6:00 am and the band was still playing...
More updates will be coming but our internet is a bit sketchy and I'm not sure how often I'll post... tho I'll try to keep you kids updated as much as possible!
Hope your July has been fun in the sun, where ever you are!
