We had a very busy weekend! Tim and I took Friday off to take the kids to Six Flags so Janie could use the free ticket that she got for reading this past school year. We met some friends there, it was lots of fun!
As soon as we left Six Flags, we quickly changed clothes and went to the rehearsal and dinner for Tim’s grandpa’s wedding. He and his bride to be were both widowed. They lived in the same neighborhood, went to the same church and found love. Such a sweet story and a reminder that you can find love at any age! The rehearsal dinner was a blast!
When we woke up on Saturday morning, we got to meet this sweet boy….
Jacob is just a couple of weeks old and belongs to Tim’s cousin and his wife. They came up from South Georgia for the wedding. We were so excited to meet him, and see his parents too, of course! Janie could have held him all weekend and practically did!
The wedding was in the afternoon so after making sure Nolan got a nap, we headed to the church. At the rehearsal, he sprinted down the aisle and refused to hold the flower girl’s hand. We talked to him about it and he said that he would walk and hold her hand. I was nervous because he was carrying a pillow with the real rings and had to bring it to the priest during the ceremony. This meant staying in the front row during mass! Nolan typically has to leave church at least once during mass each week so I was hoping that we would be able to keep him in the church for his very important role. Thankfully, he did a great job! He walked down the aisle and brought the rings up. At the end, he was supposed to hold the flower girl’s hand and walk back up the aisle. He again refused to hold her and again, sprinted up the aisle. Oh well, the important parts were covered so I was happy. Are you ready for some cuteness????
The wedding and reception were lots of fun! We felt so blessed to be a part of it. We were sad to see our family leave today but so happy that we got to spend time together.
