After our unorthodox lunch, we went to Nick and Carissa's wedding. Vivi looked adorable in her little yellow dress, and we were all anticipating a very nice day!
While I was certainly hoping we would make it through the wedding, I was aware of the fact that an almost-21 month old was not likely to have the patience to sit through the ceremony. I was right. Vivi really liked the organ music. So much so, that as soon as each piece of music was finished, she clapped her hands and shouted "YAAAY MUSIC!" at the top of her lungs. It was really quite cute. However, I am one of those people who thinks you should be able to hear and enjoy a wedding and NOT the toddler behind you, so I stepped out with Vivi and let her run in the back of the church.
This pretty much set the tone for the evening. Once we got to the reception hall, it was run, run, run. We had anticpated gettng some nice family photos, since we were all there, and all dressed so nicely.
You would think I would learn, at some point.
Sitting still for photos? Not a priority for Vivi.
We almost managed to get a nice one with Aunt Becky...
...and then she turned and dived off the chair.
Let's face it, friends. Whether you are 1 or 31, weddings are for dancing. And running.
Congratulations, Nick and Carissa! It was a beautiful day!
