Weddings, weddings, weddings!





By the time the month is done, we will have been to four weddings already this spring. That means with the exception of this coming weekend, we've had one every weekend--and Karl has officiated three. Now, these all have been wonderful and we've been so blessed to be a part of such an incredible day, however, the boys don't always share our sentiment. Luckily, two of those weddings we've not had all three boys for the whole time (like this one, for instance: our wonderful neighbor Amy kept the boys for the 2:30 wedding (so Owen could get a much needed nap, for one!) and then we took the boys to the reception at Elcona Country Club that evening. Before we left for the reception, though, we had a little incident. As we were walking out to the van, Braden, thinking he was unlocking the doors, locked the keys in the car. So, for the next 30 minutes, Karl tried to break into the van as I tried to keep the boys light khaki and white pants clean as they rode bikes and scooters to pass the time (a completely impossible task--luckily, Shaklee's all-purpose cleaner works on black marks on pants too :) ). After this episode (I don't want to think about the paint chip bill we're going to have), as you can tell from the pictures, it was quite a fun night. The boys enjoyed hanging out with Nikki and Seth (the incredibly talented DJ) and dancing a little, not smiling for pictures, and walking around as a family. I LOVE the pictures of Karl and the boys! I have such handsome men in my life, don't I?!? Anyway, thanks, Eric and Kelly, Bryanne and Jordan, Brian and Amy, and (soon!) Kyle and Elizabeth for letting us share in your special days...and making some of our own family memories in the process.

Oh my goodness, Danielle- You have SUCH a beautiful family! I was laying in bed tonight, er, this morning, and prayed for your little girl. She's hopefully about a month old!!! :) I love you and think you're SO amazing. I can't imagine going to 4 weddings in a row, coming home to MORE visitors and a Settlers game, and still smiling! Love you and can't WAIT to have you in Paraguay!!!!
