Meeting Cousin Dylan

Photo-A-Day #3000

My baby sister just had a baby of her own. Eva and Andrew have a new baby cousin named Dylan. He’s a little over a week old and today was the first chance we had to go over and meet him. The kids were excited to meet Dylan. Eva because she loves babies and Dylan is so little and cute. Andrew was excited, but pretty much excited for mommy to put Dylan down. He was a bit jealous. He could have cared less when I held Dylan, though. It was nice for the kids to meet their new baby cousin and spend time with their Auntie Shelby.

I’m very proud to be an Uncle again, this time on my family’s side. I made sure to go out and Get Dylan his first Transformers. Of course it was Optimus Prime. I almost got him the War for Cybertron figure but then he’s have to wait many years to actually play with that one. I got him the Rescue Bots version so he only has to wait a few years to play with Prime.

We look forward to spending some time with Dylan on the Cape in a week or so for the 4th of July. Should be exciting in a few years as two little boys tear around the place. Hide your breakables Mom and Dad because these guys will test everything to see if it does break.

Oh and I hit a big milestone today with 3000 consecutive days of Photo-A-Day.

We Love A Party

Photo-A-Day #1604

Tonight my cousin Josh married his love Megan. They threw a great party filled with moments of touching sentiment as well as pure excitement and fun. You could see in the eyes of Josh and Megan that they are so in love.

It was great and almost everyone from the family was there too. Because each of my Dad’s seven sisters were there we got a family photo with Dad, his sisters and my grandparents.

And I realized that we didn’t have a photo of all three Andrew Bennetts and their wives so we got a photo of the three “Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Bennett(s)”

And also I like to make sure that we get a photo of the three Andrews together as well.

The ceremony was a very nice one. You could tell that Josh and Megan were having a good time all night long. They both had wonderful genuine smiles all evening. they were having fun and enjoying their night.

My cousin Matt, Josh’s oldest brother was the best man and he gave a fitting and moving Best Man speech that put tears in many eyes. There was a heavy cowboy theme going on during the night as well, with the cowboy hats for the groomsmen and the references to Johnny Cash, we were ready to kick up the night. And knowing this family, well the title of this post says it all, “We Love A Party.

I posted my photos from the other night. I don’t have captions or descriptions yet but feel free to visit and comment. Josh and Megan’s Wedding Gallery.
