Busy Weekend

We were in Indiana this past weekend for my dear friend Cheryl's wedding.  The wedding was Friday night at 5:30 pm and we arrived in town at 4.  We left Hudson with my parents and I quickly went over his schedule with my mom and got ready.  The wedding and reception were beautiful and it was great seeing all of our friends.  We miss them so much.  It's so fun watching a wedding knowing that the two people getting married waited on God's best for them.  I know without a doubt that they'll have a long, happy, Christ centered marriage.  I had tears the whole ceremony.  Cheryl and I have been praying for each other's spouse since 2004, so it was really great seeing this prayer come true.
The unity candle wouldn't light -they tried for several minutes.

Stephanie, me, Julie, and Sheri --I just met Stephanie that night, she was really sweet.  She married our friend Troy

They had great dancing 
I was able to talk to Cheryl for about 5 minutes, but forgot to get a picture with her.  She looked so beautiful and was glowing.  I'm so happy for her.  

The next day we went swimming.  It was Hudson's first time in a big pool.  The water was quite cool and at first he was unsure and I couldn't get a smile out of him - Mr. Serious
Once he got used to the water, he was all smiles again
We only stayed about 35 minutes and then left to go to Brian's parents for the afternoon.  Hudson was really tuckered out.  He fell asleep within the first minute of being in his car seat.

We had pizza for lunch and strawberry shortcake for dessert- yum!  

Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of my parents with Hudson.  Such a fun, but busy weekend.

Oh, I almost forgot - We have a new nephew.  Cooper Stephan was born 6/5/12.  He weighed 8 lbs and was 22 1/2 inches long.  Congratulations Brittany and Chris!!  We can't wait to meet him.   He's so cute!!

  1. Okay, I am cracking up. What is with me looking terrified in these pictures? I almost think the one you DIDN'T put on your blog would have been better. Yikes! I never knew I was so creepy! That, and I LOVE the white dot on my chest in the one picture. Isn't it nice to have such a photogenic friend?!? :-\ :-)

    Oh, and I LOVE Cooper! Congratulations to you all! :-)


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
