A wedding...

A wedding over the weekend..Aside from making me feel old as the hills, seeing as I met the bride when she was still in diapers (or pretty damn near..), it was a beautiful day.

It was also a very DIY day, so beautifully done. The bride made the cake..

..the bridesmaids' dresses (the one in front is my own oft-mentioned SIL)..

..and her own dress. Have a better look at's worth a click!

Everything else was also done by family and friends (these cupcakes courtesy of my SIL..a fantastic cook. The icing was SO yummy...and I don't usually like icing.:p )...except the celebrant, of course. Who, actually, was also a good friend of one of the friends. :p

We had a great day...tons of good food (and drinks..non alcoholic, of course...but we were all SO hot, the drinks were a definite standout, rofl!), all our friends, and then the fun and games...between the volleyball and the soccer, dh and ds are walking like old men today. I, personally, sat like a lump on any available chair all day. I was WIPED, lol.

The kids got to be painted...the girls mostly chose butterflies and flowers..

..and the boys mostly chose spiders, beetles, and Maori face tats. :p

Congratulations, Nanda and Vani...may you have a long and happy life together, under the Lord. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Comes beauty..

Story goes, in 1767 the Burmese attacked Ayatthuya, in Thailand, and as another act of disrespect, chopped all the heads off every Buddha. This one ended up in the roots of the bodhi tree. Just can't really believe that was a coincidence.

I love Amy Sol. She actually came down here to Sydney, and went to an event my SIL was present at, but that didn't help ME any, did it?? *sigh*

Sweet and spice...

That's what the entire park smelled like.

If you look really closely at this last one, you can tell the boy took it. :p

All that was needed to complete was my dd.

Haven't reached bottom yet...

By popular demand...

Stating the obvious...

It's spring here in Sydney, in case it had escaped anyone's notice...
