Then Friday morning we headed out to Chicago for John's wedding! The last of my cousins is officially married, and so this felt like the last time to really go and blow it out family style, so lo, we did.
Everyone in the wedding looked absolutely gorgeous (I stole this picture from Facebook) and so happy.
Grandpa Charlie was able to make it to the wedding and stay for cocktail hour. Olivia made a beautiful flower girl, and let me have her flower crown when she left for the night, which is the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Plus Tim looked very handsome and we were able to do a lot of great dancing. A+ evening all around.
The kids spent the weekend with Mimi and Poppy and as usual, had a great time. The movies, the zoo, doing a hands on project at Home Depot, plus Adam's baseball game and Ellie's Ocean Heroes class (plus then a special girls night dinner with Mimi.)
Double bonus: we didn't have to wake up with the kids with daylight savings!
