Pre-cana? Nah. FOCCUS test? Nah. Any sort of marriage preparation reading material? Nah. Although, now being almost six months into marriage, I can see that any of those would be very, very, helpful.
This is marriage prep Veggie-style.
On Friday, amid decorating, welcoming guests, eating some scrumptious food, swimming, and boating, we took some time out for playing on the ropes course. Everyone got pretty into it.
Most surprising entries?
72 year old FFIL Veggie. Re-discovering youthful zest on the zip line and flying squirrel.
6 year old Veggie Sprout Ringbearer. Not scared at all of the 40+ foot multi-stage zip line.
Not to be outdone, Momma Veggie and the Veggie siblings got in on the act.
And this is definitely one of my favorite series of photos from the entire weekend.
Now that’s teamwork. What’s your favorite dish? (Any Tenacious D fans out there? Anyone?)
Your family might not be as crazy as ours, but I seriously recommend finding some way of having a relaxing fun time with both sides all together at some point before the wedding. Because we live so far away, and our families live far from each other, it isn’t often that we are all in the same place. Doing the ropes course all together is one of the first memories we created with our new family…all 20+ siblings, parents, and nieces and nephews. Here’s hoping there will be many many more.
