Some of the guys must have gotten lost on the way to River Street because we had to hold the riverboat to wait on them. (Like, I literally kept standing on the ramp to the boat to make sure they didn’t depart without our entire party!). They all made it and we were able to leave just a couple of minutes late.
But we were still missing four very important people.
My oldest brother and his family didn’t make it in town in time for the dinner. Not only did we not get to catch up (he was on a rare leave from Iraq), but MIL Lab paid for 4 unused and very expensive dinner tickets. 🙁
Once on the boat, I found my ladies who had saved a spot AND a cocktail for me!
Before I knew it, we were off and sailing away into the night!
I wish I had thought to take photos of all the yummy food! It was served buffet style and I scarfed all of mine down since I had hardly eaten the entire day.
After dinner, it was photo time. Our always conscientious groomsman Jimmy took most of the photos in this post. Thanks Jimmy!
Mama Lab and I pose with our pastor and his wife. He just retired this Easter and I’m so sad I won’t hear his great sermons anymore. 🙁
Mr. Lab’s family is very small. It’s practically just him, his mom, and his sister. But my family’s size definitely makes up for it! He had fun taking photos with his soon to be nieces! (And this isn’t even ALL of them! There are two more plus a nephew!)
The riverboat had a live band that broke out some sombreros and maracas and encouraged Mr. Lab and his brother-in-law to make fools of themselves on the dance floor.
And then Best Man Don bought a round of tequila shots. PATRON tequila shots. That kid is a balla.
We ended our cruise by going upstairs to the deck and watching the other boats on the river pass us by as we docked. We might have also pulled up I’m On A Boat on someone’s iPhone and had a sing-a-long… maybe.
