We had originally planned to just relax at the hotel that his parents at got us for two night the day after our wedding. But then we found out that most of my family was going to stay in town until Monday morning so we decided to just make a “Wedding Weekend” out of it and spend more time with them. When we woke up on Sunday morning we called everyone and met up for lunch at Red Robin. We had quiet a group.. my family, his parents, my uncle and his family, Brandi & her family, Kyle and Kaylee & her husband.
After lunch we decided to go back to the apartment and open gifts while everyone was in town. Since there was going to be so many of us we ended up taking all the gifts down to the club house and opening them down there.
I’m honestly really glad that we decided to open all our gifts with our family and close friends. Don’t get me wrong it would have been just as nice opening them just the two of us when we got back from our honeymoon, but it was kinda special to have everyone there. My family, his mom, Brandi & her family and Kyle were the only ones that came over but it was still fun.
JMan had a blast helping Uncle Dennis open gifts while I got to open all the cards. We got a lot of stuff off our registry and are so thankful for everyone. After we got done opening presents everyone went home and we went back to the hotel to relax until dinner time. Then we headed back over the apartment and had dinner with my family and my Uncle’s family. After dinner we all sat around the table talking and decided to try to finish off all the cupcakes from my bridal shower.
It’s no secret that I love my family and to me nothing is more important than family. There are so many little moments from the weekend of our wedding that mean so much to me. Even just sitting around the table stuffing our faces with cupcakes.
