Last May our family celebrated an engagement...DsD2 and Karl...

We had a 'Tea Party' themed engagement party...
The happy couple with Karl's mum...
The couple with DsD2's mum...
With her sisters...
DH has his hands full here! With DD2, DsD3 and DsD2
We weren't really surprised that this couple should get engaged  What did sort of surprise us was that Karl came and asked DH for his daughter's hand in marriage. Over the preceding couple of years, Karl had become quite a 'fixture' round here... good naturedly wearing the paper hat that came out of the Christmas bon bon :-)...


Cheerfully accompanying DsD2 to family gatherings...

Well today DH and I took this young couple to the airport. They were flying out to Christchurch in NZ to get ready for their wedding on May 4 in Wanaka. Some very important luggage was accompanying them...
The bride's gown in its protective white bag...


Then were the bridesmaid gowns in another suitcase...
Karl starts to load up the trolley...


Hmmm...the stack's getting higher there!


Finally all 3 suitcases are stacked up plus a large barrel bag (very heavy I'm told) and some overnight bags.

So these 2, plus one bridesmaid and her family flew out today, DsD1 and her partner fly out tomorrow. DH, myself, BIL and SIL fly out together on Sunday, mother of the bride flies out next Wednesday and DsD3 flies out on Thursday I think. We're like the royal family...not travelling all together!! lol
My 2 daughters, after much soul searching, decided not to go. Many other relatives and friends are not attending also...it can be an expensive undertaking especially if time restraints mean that people could only go for that weekend.
So next week I will be blogging from new Zealand! Stay tuned lol
