On Saturday, we drove up to Springfield, IL to attend Matt’s cousin Becky’s wedding. It was a really nice day…oh, except the weather. That was really NOT nice. It poured for much of the day, and late last night it turned to snow. Lovely midwestern spring weather. (This from a girl who’s still slightly bitter that her own October wedding day was exactly as ugly [the previous year October 9th was the PERFECT fall day, of course]. Oh well. At the end of the day, we were still married, and from where I’m sitting, it’s working out OK for us.)
At least I hear that the ceremony was nice. I spent that 30 minutes holed-up in a “prayer room” (with windows to the sanctuary) with Jack Henry, who within 2 minutes of finding our seats in church made it very clear that he was not going to be able to handle being told what to do. He was especially interested in sitting all the way down the row from us, as well as removing all of the pencils and papers from the chair backs. So, the two of us had some time together in the back of church. I will be fine with leaving this part of babyhood in the dust.
The boys were especially pleased to discover that Becca and Bryan had a candy bar set up at the reception. Yes, friends, you got to fill a little bag with whatever candy your heart desires.
Here’s the happy couple with their cake, and the groom’s cake, which was an iphone! Luke was so intrigued by it that he drew a picture of an iphone today at church. Nice.
I’m totally bummed that, like many family events, I didn’t take pictures of the boys/us with the extended family. So – Heidi, Andrea and Jo, if you have good ones, will you email them please?!
And now, to explain the title. My boys have made a bit of a name for themselves as dancers at weddings when they’re toddlers. Jack Henry apparently got the memo, because as soon as the music started up and he was free to roam the dance floor, he got down! Luke, at 6, is still itching to get on the dance floor when it’s time, so you’ll see him, too. Listen to the DJ in the video talking about him! 😉
