Page Before

We've just returned from a family, and I mean the whole family, trip to NYC. We all loaded in cars, rode escalators, flew in planes, hopped buses and trains, worried about lost baggage, joseled children and pets, found hotels, had fights with cab drivers, figured out subways and got there man. We.Got.There.

Not just us. No, I mean sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends all made the trip. Even souls of loved ones who have passed were called upon to attend. And we were there. We were all there.

We all went to celebrate two people who decided it was time to marry each other. You see it was their chapter-turner and we all wanted to bear witness. Seeing two people literally turn a page in their own lives. Fascinating really. Enter "Uncle Yankee" and his new wife "Nemy".

Because there are so many incredible shots from the weekend and many more will follow, I'm going to break this post into 2, "Page Before & Page After".

We had a couple of days before the wedding to show Big and Lil' some important stuff. On top of that list was the 911 Memorial.

Here is the "Survivor Tree". It was only 8ft tall when they found it under the rubble in 2001. Now it's 35ft tall. 

Uncle Yankee lost one of his oldest childhood friends in 911. We especially wanted to see his name and honor his memory.

Patricia's name is just under Scott's. I literally felt a pull in my uterus reading this.

Here's a little something to lighten the mood. Sorry Lil'. I just had to. God Bless America!

Someone had a hard time with all the walking in NYC. Not gonna' mention any names but I think the big city might be a little too much for some of us.

2 kids + no Daddy = 1 thirsty Mama. Kids, this is The Plaza. They have a bar.
Lil' was made for this place.

Big was not.
