On Weddings, Kids, Underpants-Showing, and Being Lazy

I find that getting back in the swing of things after being out of town - even if it is only a 4 day trip - is virtually impossible. Or maybe I'm just lazy. Yeah, probably the last one.

But we just got back from my uncle's wedding in Austin, where most of my family lives, and it was absolutely lovely.

Gracie, my hopelessly romantic daughter, was enamored by the entire wedding.

Annelie, my less-than-lady-like daughter, refused to sit in positions that didn't show her Tinkerbell underpants to the world.

Aside from the 8-hour round trip drive, it was a fun long weekend. Family members that I hadn't seen in awhile flew out from various parts of the country, so the days were full of family breakfasts, lunches, dinners, pool parties, pizza parties, Father's Day parties... man, oh man, there was much food to be eaten and eat I did. Maybe that it why I'm struggling to get back into the swing of things... I'm still too full.

Yes. That's it. Forget laziness... I'm just full. Perhaps when all that food digests, I'll get back to reality...

Maybe.

xoxo,

Aw, the girls look cute in their dresses, though! Family events like that are always crazy, but so much fun, right? When you get back into the swing of things, let me know, we'd love to come over and play :)

They look so lady like (OK less the showing off of Tink)! Looks like it was a fun time.

Amelia has been all about pretending to be Cinderella marrying Prince Charming. Like 5 times a day. She's convinced all there is to it is saying "I do", then dancing then kissing the prince. Oh and I get to be the minister. I'm afraid if she goes to a real one she'll want me to simulate the whole shebang :)
