Destination Weddings are the BEST!

I recently sent the following email out to friends & family. I had to share - I'll get out the story and details of our trip up shortly - but as a teaser here is the email. At the bottom I am compiling the replies back that I've gotten. I'll put them all together at the end and send them along to Granny & Jim - they are going to get a kick out of some of the well wishes and comments!
Better than best is attending your grandmother's wedding, is having your daughter's first wedding be her great grandmother's big day! Over Thanksgiving break my dad's side of the family all made the trip to St. Croix for a big family event. Here are a few pictures I wanted to share!
Granny & her three sons (my dad (w/glasses), Uncle Peter & Uncle Martin).
The Coleman's went out to dinner for Granny's bachelorette party!
L at the beach!
On our back porch in her itsy bitsy teeny weenie blue palm tree bikini!
Wedding Day!

Uncle Martin & Aunt Jennifer- oldest brother & wife – he gave Granny away and she was her matron of honor!
L as a dancing QUEEN! Here with Uncle Chris (brother) & Granny

The day after the wedding we went on a snorkel trip –check out the love birds!
A FEW more of L at the beach.
The comments... some had to be cleaned up for G rating reasons... not usually a censor, but some and you know who you are... not right.
