Well, we were in Gainesville over the weekend for Jonathan's sister's wedding. After much deliberation, we decided to leave William behind with my parents, since it was going to be a long & tiresome experience for a toddler. We missed him a LOT and felt pretty weird only being 3 of us. But he had a great weekend and we were less stressed, so it was best for all of us. Anyway, my cousin-in-law, Angela, put such a great commentary of the events on her blog that I'm just going to give the short version of our activities. Thanks Angela! ;-)
It was Gator homecoming weekend so we all wore our Gator gear for the rehearsal & dinner.
Decked out in Gator stuff
Little Gator Girl
Abbey was just full of smiles - the whole weekend.
We got her some little tights to go with her dress. Here she is swinging in the hotel room while we got ready. She looked so cute!
The beautiful bride
Since we had to wait through all of the pictures, we got our picture taken too!
Here's Charles on the dance floor with his lamb. He was great company while we waited for the wedding and he was such a good boy during the reception.
Nana and Papa with Abbey
The girls in white
3 of us
Daddy and his girl
The cake - beautiful and delicious!
I wasn't able to get any pictures of the actual ceremony, since Jonathan was in the wedding and Abbey decided to eat during the whole thing. Then she spit up all down the front of me afterwards. Nice.
Cutting the cake
Abbey was such a good girl all day long, in spite of the fact that she probably only slept for about an hour from the time we left the hotel to the time we left the banquet hall; it was a long day.
Aunt Pam, Uncle Chuck, Angela, and Charles
It was such a treat to see them again this weekend. That's twice in 2 weeks! Aunt Pam and Uncle Chuck are moving back to Lakeland next month, so we're happy about too!
Ed & Katie's dance
The song they danced to was a real tear-jerker.
