We just got back from vacation a couple days ago and I am still staying up late each night trying to get caught up on work, blogging, and life in general! Sorry if I haven’t commented on your blogs lately, I promise to get back to it very shortly! :) One of the main reasons for our trip last week was to attend my friend Sheila’s wedding in Grand Rapids, MI. It was the first wedding we brought Austin to and let’s just say he did OK at the dinner the night before, but a lack of sleep and a short nap made it pretty difficult for him (and us) on the wedding day. However, I am just happy that he got to experience a new thing and meet so many of my friends finally! :)

The ceremony was held at a beautiful church in Grand Rapids, MI!  I ended up going myself (while Marvin and Austin stayed back at the hotel room) because we weren’t sure of Austin’s abilities to stay quiet and seated for more than 3 minutes haha!

So happy that I got to see fellow blogger Christy of Sunny with a side of!  She blogs about fashion and her cute little girl, you should follow her if you don’t already!

Ice cream bar for dessert to end the night!  Best idea ever!

    What a cute family! We took my son to my brother’s wedding, but I think weddings are way more fun when the toddler stays home. :-)

    Wow – you look lovely…fab colour on you and your wee man is just adorable! It’s a tiring age for mum and dad…I remember my three at that age. It does get easier! Great you got to enjoy the wedding together as a family, Ax

    AWww, thanks so much for the link!! We had so much fun at the wedding. I’m sorry you had to see my embarrassing reaction when I drank that shot of nastiness haha :) I wish we had more time to hang out/chat/talk blog stuff. Maybe we’ll make a trip down to Missouri one of these days and see you guys again, that way the babies can hang out for real this time. You looked absolutely lovely, Austin did SO GREAT considering how tired he was, and Marvin is just the nicest guy ever!

    Hi Sandy,
    Would you tell me where Sheila’s wedding reception was held? I’m research venues. Thanks a bunch.
