We spent part of this past week and the weekend in Marietta celebrating Josh's sister's wedding. Rebekah and Kevin were married in a gorgeous ceremony on Saturday night. Josh was a groomsman, I was a (pregnant) bridesmaid, and Abigail was a flower girl. Jack just got dressed up for the pictures!! Everything went off without a hitch, and we were so proud of how amazing the little ones were the whole time we were there. Under normal circumstances, Abigail and Jack are virtually comatose at 8:00 or so every night at their bedtime. They were out until 11:00 or later some nights due to various parties and family get-togethers, but they were fantastic!! At the reception, Abigail spent most of the night on the dance floor...literally!! After the first song, she came running up to me, and I fully expected her to want to escape from the loud music and the chaos. No, no, no...she told me her bow was falling out, she handed it to me, and she ran off saying she wanted to go dance some more. Who knew?!? Jack spent most of his time in the arms of most of Rebekah and Kevin's guests. Every once in a while, Josh or I would look around until we found him. Sometimes we knew his playmate, and sometimes we didn't. He seemed to love it, though! One of his favorite moments came when he took center-stage on the dance floor and everyone sang "Love-Jack" (adapted from "Love-Shack") to him as he was hoisted into the air. Needless to say, it was a fun night for all!
Rebekah and Kevin are enjoying some much-deserved rest in St. Lucia right now. It was so neat for us to be a part of their special day. It may take us until September 2008 to fully recover, but it was well-worth it. :-)
