The Lunch...


just got back from our weekend noosa break
our very important
meet the parents of the bride lunch...
{mr w and i are the parents of the groom}.

we went to cato's...

it was a beautiful sunny day.

this is ella...

she is adorable...
{she is the daughter of the bride-to-be's brother}
she was tired from exploring the eumundi markets in the morning,
but after her mum took her out for a bit of a break
she settled down again and was very well behaved.

the lunch was a great success.
mr s is marrying into a wonderful family
who are close and friendly
and welcomed us with open arms...
we feel privileged to be part of their lives now!

i was amused, delighted and proud
to discover that my son
had asked for their daughter's hand in marriage
in mandarin {chinese}...

miss a's parents were very touched by the gesture too.

i'll show you some beach pics
and tell you about the rest tomorrow!
