A few notes from our weekend

Things I have learned about being a Mom: Installment number 2,345. When your infant is fussy in the car, he’s not teething, he’s tired and you need to get a grip, leave him alone, and let him fall asleep. šŸ™‚ The ride up to the UP was an excersize in patience and parenting skills. Ben was fussy the whole way. We did think he was teeting, but alas, no teeth yet.
We had a great time in Escabanana….the wedding was beautiful (*tear*) and just a whole lot of fun. It never broke ninety the whole weekend (haha..suckers)….but it was still pretty sticky, and Mr. Ben was having none of that. He spent a lot of time in a diaper and nothing else, or in a diaper and air conditioning at the hotel. We did try the swimming thing again, and he enjoyed it this time….almost. šŸ™‚
Now the summer officially slows down, no more trips. Being indoors in the air is nice, but I think it’s going to drive me a little stir crazy. Ben and I may need to get out for a walk at the mall or somewhere today, or I’m liable to commit Hari Kari.

We’re starting Cereal today. Wish me luck. I will, of course, have pictures.

The wedding was outdoors behind this beautiful lodge rented for the week. The river was shallow and the bottom was large slabs of rock that were not slippery, not painful, and easy to walk on. Ben didn’t mind putting his feet in.

A little sillytime with mom.

Ben had an adorable outfit for the wedding, and as I figured, he was in it for about an hour before he lost the pants and went just in a shirt and diaper. He got all tuckered from the heat. Doesn’t matter, he’s still cute.

This picture (and the next one) are from the rehearsal, so you can see the beautiful setting…we walked across the river for the processional…

…and the wedding was on the opposite bank. Gorgeous…just gorgeous. And laid back, and fun fun fun. šŸ™‚ Congrats, Sue and Jay. šŸ™‚

    Thanks for the great pictures. So glad Ben made the trip OK, even if the heat made him a bit cranky. Aren’t we all? Looks like a beautiful wedding indeed. Hang on, this heat should break pretty soon. Many blessings!
