Portuguese Dance

This weekend my hubby and I head back to my hometown (Allentown, PA) to see my family, get my bridesmaid's dress for my cousin's wedding, and most importantly attend a dinner dance at the Portuguese American Club (I'm half Portuguese) to benefit the American Cancer Society. My family has been going to this dance for ten years but this is the first time I have been able to go. We had a blast hanging out with my VoVo and VoVo (Portuguese for grandmother and grandfather, there are supposed to be accents but I can't figure it out), my Aunt Gloria (and godmother), Uncle Charlie, and my cousin Cassie (she's like a sister, I only have two first cousins). Here are some pictures:

It was also my grandmother's birthday!

Isn't my grandfather the cutest! He was cold so my aunt put her jacket on him.

I can't believe you are from Allentown.Do you know my friend Chris Derr? He probably graduated HS in 1993.

Where are you getting your bridesmaid dress? Is the bride letting you pick out your own? I am voting for us all picking out our own for my best friend's wedding and just having her colors. I found a cute store on http://www.gatheringguide.com/ec/bridal_shops_dresses.html where we should be able to get dresses that look pretty similar, but unique. If you get a choice I suggest something like that.
