Insta-Friday -- my look back at the week using family cell phone photos. This week, I am showing pictures from last Saturday when we went to a wedding celebration.
My husband's cousin in Italy got married and came to the US and Canada for her honeymoon. Ontario in January? Interesting choice.
Anyway, some relatives of the newlyweds had a party for them. Yes, there were showgirls, but I'll get to that later.
Of course, there was lots of food and wine:
This is gluten-free corn pasta they prepared for my sister-in-law. I prefer to have gluten-free too, so we shared. It was very tasty.
I got to take home the lovely flowers, because my husband's birthday was closest to the wedding date.
Here are my wonderful in-laws.
The kids got their own table, so they were thrilled. They kept going back to the bar for more pop.
You can see how happy they were. Look at my nephew in the background there. So cute.
Do any of the kids look Italian? My sister-in-law and I were discussing this at the party, but it's hard for us to judge. They are all a mix of Italian and Nova Scotia/Newfoundland types.
Okay, so in the many years I have been with my husband we have celebrated many Italian-style weddings, but this was a first for both of us. Our daughter and our nieces came out of the bathroom and said they saw some girls getting changed in there and that they looked like "pole dancers." How do they know what pole dancers are anyway?
Well, thankfully they weren't pole dancers...more like showgirls. Still, I admit I was a bit shocked. They just looked a bit young. But that didn't keep me from taking photos. My daughter and three nieces all take regular dance lessons, but I reminded them this isn't quite what they are training for. Here's another look at my son (centre) and his male cousins with the dancers. A proud moment.
How was your week?
Have a wonderful weekend!
