At the Beach in Mexico

I posted last week about a grandson, BRYAN, marrying the beautiful, MICAH
in a TEXAS casual, outdoor wedding.
They recreated their marriage in beautiful Mexico...
(I kept wondering if JIMMY BUFFET was anywhere around)
...forever and ever...
 With a START like this,
I have the feeling things are going to be great for this newly married couple.
He just graduated from TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY and has taken
a position with the university as an accountant.
MICAH is enrolled in nursing school at TECH.
"We weren't there to TOAST you, Bryan and Micah, so your Aunt Stacy made us a Margarita..."
♫♪ "I blew out my flip flop,
Stepped on a pop top,
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home.♪♫
But there's booze in the blender,
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on....♫♫
i'm pretty much in luv with JIMMY BUFFET.  
They were all in MEXICO for the wedding,
but a little SIDE fun was included, too.
All the girls got their diving certification  and here they are,
getting all suited up for an experience under water that I know they will
never, ever  forget..
My handsome and sweet son, DAVID, helping them getting it on.
You are sooo brave...
You got my name but you have MUCH more G.U.T.S. than your olden Memaw...
 This sight must have been so AWESOME and BEAUTIFUL...
and since I'm a titty baby,
kinda scary.....especially if they brushed up against me...
I WOULD FREAK !! THIS one would have probably made me get
from kicking my way to the top TOO FAST  to get AWAY from this......EEL ???....
I love this photo of GRANDGIRL TOES and one little GREAT GRANDGIRL TOES...
THANKS, BAILEY, for getting this photo for me. :)))
Playing with
Thanks to the hosts...and thanks to YOU for stopping by.

Oh how I smiled reading this! I love that you shared it! Congrats to Bryan & Micah! How wonderful.
And the Grand-daughters! Oh my what a grand picture of precious TOES!
And Im with you...I would be so scared of the fish touching me.

I like seeing pictures of the amazing underwater world, but I don't want to "swim with the fishes" either! Love those toes, though!

Julie Harward said...

What beautiful pictures on land and in the sea! Love those hot pink toenails too! ;D

Vee said...

Oh I love the toes. If all my family did that I'd be thrilled and hang it up in the living room. I would. Many congrats to the happy couple!

The White Farmhouse said...

What a fun post! Love all the pics! It's funny, I used to breed cichlids. Had about 2500 gallons of water in our old basement filled with fish. Yet, if one of them would come close to me, I'd freak! I have as of yet, never touched a fish. It just really freaks me out! I had one grab onto my pinkie one time. I went screaming through the house looking for my hubby to GET HIM OFF! He thought it was funny, I still fail to see the humor!

Congrats again to the happy couple! Love that Brian is barefoot in the cake pic!

I love the white shirt on the groom - dressed up, for sure, but beach-casual. That photo of the feet must have made you a little teary - what a sweet shot!

Shug said...

G O R G E O U S...... the Bride, the groom, the pictures, the place, the drinks, the toe nails, EVERYTHING...loved it!

Blondie's Journal said...

Congratulations to Bryan and Micah! What a lovely couple! And thanks for sharing your family pictures. I LOVE Mexico, but could never scuba dive. I have snorkeled and that's enough for me!! Beautiful pictures!!


Love Of Quilts said...

How fabulous...your girls will never forget scuba diving....I think I would have loved it fish and all. Trish

On Crooked Creek said...

Another reason for that beautiful smile that is always on your face!!! What sweet grandchildren!Thank you for sharing you sweet blessings with us!

La said...

Hi BJ!

It looks like fun was had by all who traveled to Mexico, but that margarita maker looks like a lot of fun, too.

Does Mr. Sweet know about you and Jimmy???

Mimi said...

What a BEAUTIFUL wedding (also went back and read the 1st post--how precious of them to make sure all the family could witness such a special time)!!! Brave, brave granddaughters!! Love the feet picture, too. On our last beach vacation, we did that with all our generations and I love it.

Gayla said...

I LOVE THE BEACH COUPLE, THOSE FAB TOES, AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA PICS.... but what I love most is this affirmation, this effervescence, this positivity of the grandmother who doesn't cringe in the dark but embraces the yes in their lives, come what will!!!!!! I had an aunt like you... She climbed a mountain on her 80th birthday....You rock!

Sweet Tea said...

If there is a happier blog around I don't know of it. What pure, utter, joy in all these photos!!
You rock!!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, if I could get married all over again, it would be on a beach. My wedding was at warm breezes or sunshine on our day. I love that last picture of the feet!

My husband loves Jimmy Buffet!!

classic • casual • home said...

Rettabug said...

Congratulations wishes going out to the happy couple...may they have many, many years of such happy times together!

LOVED the toes in the sand shot...too cute!


p.s. I just checked out a book by Susan Branch, because I saw so many of her quotes on your blog, BJ. It is chock full of recipes & sayings. A little hard to read with her wacky type font, though, but I'm enjoying it. Thanks!

Vintagesouthernlife said...

Love the pictures! BJ, you have such a wonderful family. Loved the cute toenails shot too :)

Jenn said...

Could get lost in the ocean on this post! I love the ocean- looking at it or standing near it,not necessarily in it or on it. Some great photos - looks like they had a great time. Congrats to the couple, and you (all). Jenn

Amydeanne said...

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

How fun! Way back when I was in college, I tried for two years straight to get into the scuba class. It was full EVERY single time I went to register. Was that an omen? ;)

Love the last pic with all the tootsies toes!
