Dennis and Becca's Engagement

(Sunday July 12, 2009)


oday we're celebrating Dennis and Becca's engagement at her parents home. They're planning a September wedding...and we wish them a lifetime of happiness. As usual, I took many pictures to share with you.

Sisters Laci and Becca.

Very pretty smiles.

How about a little toast?

Time to enjoy some good food.

Steve managed the BBQ.

How do you convince guys it's okay to smile for the camera?

That's more like it.

Take it from the girls. They know how...

These two are as sweet as can be...

Don't you dare!

The girls are getting ready to play ladder golf (hillbilly golf, zingball etc.) Simply put, you toss a Bolo (piece of rope with a golf ball attached at both ends) toward a ladder with the hope that it will wrap around and cling to one of the individual rungs on the ladder. Which rung of the ladder your bolo clings to ultimately determines your score,  or whether your toss simply "cancels out" your challenger's.


Meanwhile, back at the ladder golf game. A little boy proudly threw a set of zingballs up into the tree.

After multiple tries to knock them down with a football, and whatever...Davey climbs the tree to the rescue.

He can't quite reach them so Lisa brings the pruner.

...And there they go!

Down into the stream.

How about a sweet treat just for fun?

Can I have some grandpa?

Now it's our turn to play. Sierra and Cheryl are discussing the rules. Never did catch on, but am going to get the game and practice.

Amanda's elated, and Lisa's getting ready to throw.

Mel's lookin' good...

Oh boy! The gals are line dancing. Before long some brave guys join them.

What a wonderful way to wind up Dennis and Becca's engagement party. Congratulations to you both. We sure had a good time, and look forward to more of the same.
