Justin, myself, and the boys flew to up north this past weekend in order to attend my cousins wedding in Wisconsin. Not only was I excited to see Lizz get married and do her hair for the big day, but we also got to see a lot of my dad’s side of the family too!
Flying with two kids is, duh, a lot harder than flying with one. Like, 4 times harder. Luke slept pretty much the entire flight but David was antsy to get off the plane and run around. He did great, all things considered, but I determined that an hour and a half flight is about the max that David AND Justin and I can handle.
As soon as we landed in Chicago we hopped in my dad’s car and drove about 1.5 hours north to Wisconsin.
On Saturday I headed out to the church earlier than everyone else because I was doing Lizz’s hair and it was so fun to be in the room while all the bridesmaids and family members buzzed around getting ready.My cousins Lizz (the bride) and Kelley
I’ve done hair for plenty of weddings where the vibe in the room is pretty awkward, but on Saturday you could really tell that all her friends were so excited for her, and Lizz couldn’t wait to make it official with her man.
She has a lot of hair which I prefer when it comes to updo’s, and it’s one of my favorite styles that I’ve ever done.
The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was really fun. June in Wisconsin is quite risky for an outdoor reception, but the weather could not have been more perfect. My parents generously offered to take David home around his bedtime so Justin and I could stay and dance which we immediately accepted. I hired my friend Sam to watch Luke for the day so he had a lovely low-key day at the cottage and was tucked into bed at his usual time.
My brother was able to drive up for the weekend and finally meet Luke! He’s kind of a baby whisperer so I was happy to hand Luke over to him and let him carry him around for awhile. I think they were both enjoying it equally.
Several cousins and family members weren’t able to make it for the weekend, but I did get to meet a few of my ‘out of towner’ cousins’ babies. It’s fun to see all the kids running (or laying in Luke’s case) around and survey the next generation.
It was a busy weekend but full of lots of laughs and very long overdue catching up.
