After playing catch-up pretty much all day yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling like I was already behind on things. Despite that (and despite an unanticipated stop at the fairgrounds), I managed not to be late for anything today, which is pretty amazing. In my experience, kids move at their own speed, which is generally not as fast as I would like (unless the occasion calls for slow and quiet, in which case kids move as quickly and loudly as physically possible), so me getting anywhere on time is something of a miracle.
Today’s destination was my nephew’s wedding. The actual ceremony was outside, where it was downright tropical, but it was a beautiful ceremony, with beautiful vows spoken by beautiful (in every sense of the word) people. The reception was inside, which was wonderful because all the groomsmen (and the groom) looked exceedingly warm in their long sleeves. It was a beautiful wedding, and I’m so happy we could go.
The boys had an absolute blast playing with their cousins. My niece’s kids are the same ages as Cricket and Thumper, and Cricket couldn’t stop talking about how much fun he had playing and dancing with them. I’m glad they had so much fun together. I got to see three of my siblings, which was another treat as I don’t see them very often. It was a great evening.
I think Cricket’s going to have to teach Bubbles his dance moves. After picking up break dancing (kid style) from his cousin, Cricket busted out his own moves and managed not to break anything, unlike his big brother, who broke his glasses this spring when he tried break dancing at a school dance.
We did ‘t stay to dance as long as I’d have liked, but Seymour was super tired, and the boys were getting that way, too. Still, we had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait for the next big family event. 🙂
