Snow Hugs.

My best friend's "baby" sister is getting married.  :)  This meant, of course, family reunion for the Snow family!  I love this family.  They are near and dear to my heart.  I grew up, spending many a night under the roof of their home, as they included me as one of their own.  Their dad made endless fun of my "blonde moments."  Their mom fed me the best lasagna and homemade pizza I'd ever tasted.  Second only to my own family, the Snows had a front row seat to watching me grow up.  Lucky them!  Shelly's home became my second home.  :) ...and vice versa.  If I wasn't at her house, she was at mine.  Our siblings were very familiar with the routine.  They were all used to having that "additional" family member around.

Unlike my own siblings and myself, the Snow siblings grew up and spread out in location!  One is in California; one is in ROMANIA, for pete's sake; one is in Illinois; and one is in Arkansas. 

This weekend, Shelly threw her little sister a surprise bachelorette party.  They drove into the St. Louis area to reunite with friends (I just so happen to be one of them) and celebrate Susanna's upcoming wedding.

We had dinner in Westport Plaza, where I was blessed to capture some Snow family reunion moments... as well as Susanna greeting some of her St. Louis family she hadn't seen in quite some time!!!  :)

Take a look at these pics, and just TRY to tell me you wouldn't be in love with them, too... 

Susanna greets some of her friends:

Shelly and her daughter see Shelly's brother, David,
for the first time this visit.

Dave also has hellos for his little sister.

...and a sister moment during dinner, when Shelly surprised Susanna with their mother's wedding ring as
a "something old" gift for the wedding.
