kind of dressed up for a wedding

October 6, 2014

weekendweekendweekendIt was over 100 degrees again this past weekend (ugh!) and we went to my cousin’s wedding. Thankfully, the wedding was in the afternoon and there were lots of trees around, so it didn’t feel as hot as it was. We took care of house things in the morning, then about an hour before we’re supposed to leave, I’m yelling, “Everyone get dress!” It’s quite a chaotic scene when we all have to get dressed to go somewhere. If there’s nowhere to go, the girls stay in pajamas all day long, except Soul, she sleeps in a skirt or dress every night.

Soul has been wearing that “party dress” of hers since Friday night. She slept in it and wore it again all day Saturday. She said she wanted to wear it to the wedding, and whatever, I let her wear it. You can’t tell, but she’s wearing a denim skirt under it too. It’s her newest thing to wear two skirts. That girl always has a thing. Brave is Nancy Drew mixed with Peter Parker, and True wore Birks (I wasn’t paying attention when she chose her footwear). Glow’s the only I dressed myself. The wedding was country/cowboy themed (the bride is from Texas), so Ben just wore a Canadian tuxedo. It was not formal, and Ben was happy to be able to wear jeans. I wore a shift dress from Old Navy and my favorite boots.

The wedding venue also had a mini orchard, so Ben made a beeline to check that out as soon as the ceremony was over. I headed into the greenhouse because all the pretty plants caught my eye.┬áIt was such a fun evening out together celebrating my cousin’s marriage and being able to catch up with family that we don’t see too often.

Our weekend was filled with lots of family and friend time. We didn’t get home until 10pm on Saturday and Sunday night. That’s pretty wild for us!
