Wedding Fun

Both girls did a great job with their flower girl duties at the wedding this afternoon. Evelyn not only made it down the aisle, sprinkling her flower petals as she went, but she also stood up at the front with the bridesmaids for the entire ceremony. Here she is, eating a well-deserved snack at the reception.Julia did better than we thought she would. She walked with Evelyn down the aisle, dropping flower petals as she went (not dumping her entire basket like yesterday). The plan was for her to sit with Troy when she was done. Naturally, Julia had another idea. She turned toward the back of the church (where I was standing) and said, "Look, Mommy! I dropped all my flowers!" Then she came running back to me - which was totally fine, since we could sneak into the sanctuary from a side door. Why do you suppose Julia did such a good job? She knew there would be snacks and punch when she was done!
Mmmmm...tasty cupcake...
Even though there wasn't a formal dance following the wedding, Julia and Evelyn still had fun twirling and dancing in their dresses. The girls love music, so they made up their own tunes to jam to.
The girls did a great job, and they had a great time at Brooke's wedding. We are all so happy we were part of her special day!
