Going to the Chapel
Monday we had to get ready to go to my nephew Brent’s wedding. Note to self: Never share a bathroom with two women. Brent was set to marry Yaya, who is Chinese, in the little Chapel of the Flowers. Some of Brent’s Cajun relatives had come to witness the wedding as had a number of Yaya’s relatives. Most of Yaya’s side of the family did not speak English very well and the same could be said for Brent’s side. It had the makings of an interesting event with international implications. I think the only thing the two groups had in common is that they would both eat anything.
We found the wedding chapel after a bit of hunting. Brent had only an inkling of where he was actually getting married. And there is one heck of a lot of wedding chapels all in one area of the Las Vegas strip. But we found it and had time to catch up with relatives I had not seen in a while.
Yaya of course was beautiful. Her two children were in attendance and they are the most beautiful of children. Brent not only got a good looking wife in the deal but a couple of children too. His parents, Meryl and Leo, got to be instant Grandparents and they were really happy with that.
After the wedding we all gathered at a local restaurant for a reception. But first I had to escort the new couple around Las Vegas for some photo ops. It gave us a lot of time for Brent and me to get caught up. And I think they got some good pictures out of it.
We had a nice meal and some music at the restaurant and went through all of the usual wedding tradition stuff. Lot’s more visiting and we finally called it a day at 6 PM. I think everyone was beat from the travel and the late night the night before. So it was back to the condo to watch Monday Night Football with our eyes closed.
