Last weekend we had a wedding in Annapolis. Instead of making the 90 minute drive 4 times, we decided to stay in town overnight and make it a little family weekend get away.
We took the kids to tour the Maryland State House on Friday afternoon. Of course the canon drew immediate attention from the boys.
Everyone had to take turns standing on the spot where George Washington resigned. Elisabeth wasn't sure what all the fuss was about.
so Pa could take a picture.
The girls found a hat shop they just had to check out...
While the rest of us had a snack.
And didn't they look handsome, too.
Ellie so happy to have her Pa back after a week away.
Eloise At the Plaza. Brushing her teeth...
jumping in bed...
Brianna was only interested in mapping out our morning.
Troops lined up for inspection... to make sure everyone is wearing the right suit and all. No joke. When we were getting ready to leave for the rehearsal dinner, I checked the kids over to discover Aedan squeezed into a pair of slacks that belonged to Samuel... who is about half his size.
The girls and I were crazy for the detail the bride added to her train with this inset pleat and beaded detail at the waist to match the color in her bridesmaid dresses.
And some people might have really liked this cake topper.
Some photos while we waited for everyone to be seated.
And our precious darlings.
the lovely ladies
and trying so hard to be gentlemen!
Ellie spent some time attempting to take pictures of Allen.
My girls... yes, they include Winnie in that group.
Congratulations, darling friends and many wishes for a lifetime of joy as you face the trials and victories of life together.
