Memory Lane Monday: Laughter


After yesterday, I got to thinking about things and I remembered the following story...and I knew I had pictures, and let's face it, a story with pictures is way better than a story with no pictures!  I should preface this story with telling you that when we got engaged Nathan promised to make me laugh everyday.  Some days I'm sure it has been easier on him than others (I am a stubborn, moody individual sometimes) but I am grateful for him and his carefree spirit...it's kept me young. 

A couple years back (2008 maybe?) we went to Nathan's mother's family reunion.  We hung out with family for dinner and games, etc.  After dinner we retired to our tent and couldn't fall asleep.  I blame it on the massive amounts of caffeine we had to consume on the long drive to the reunion location.  I'm not even sure what started it, but we started giggling...and it wouldn't stop.  We giggled and laughed for at least an hour (much to the annoyance of those whose tents were close to ours, I'm sure).  We thought it was so funny to take nerdy pictures of ourselves in the dark...the flash leaving bright bulbs of color drifting across our field of vision.  We snapped these beauties that night:



The funny thing is that we wasted the battery of the camera taking these pics and so they are the only pictures we have of that family reunion...but it is a memory that we'll never forget!
