South Carolina - Round Two

After our awesome visit with my brother and his family, it was time to head to Columbia, SC to see Jason's family.  It was wedding time!  We didn't have much time for play on this leg of the trip, but the kids did get to spend a good amount of time with their cousin. 

We mainly just spent what little down time we had visiting with Jason's two brothers and other family members who we don't get to see too often.  It's always nice to catch up! 

The day before the wedding, the kids and I got to go to a Bridal Brunch while all the guys golfed.  I had never heard of a Bridal Brunch/Lunch before, but who am I to pass up free mimosas!?  It was great food and it was nice to meet some of my new sister-in-laws friends and family.

That night was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  The rehearsal didn't go too great....Redmond, who was so excited to be a ring bearer, suddenly realized just what that meant - being surrounded by people he didn't know, walking passed a bunch of people he didn't know and being told what to do by people he didn't know.  Poor guy was so distressed.  He finally calmed down and we were able to wrap up the rehearsal and head to dinner.  It was delicious!

The day of the wedding was pretty low-key (well, for us at least!).  We just spent the morning lounging around.  Once it was show time, we headed to the church.  They decided that Redmond would walk down the aisle with Jason and then come to me.  That plan worked great!  I don't think I'd ever seen Redmond run as fast as he did once his ring bearer duties were over!  He bolted down the aisle to me!  
Can't. Handle. The. Cuteness.
The real fun of the weekend happened at the reception.  Redmond had been talking about dancing on the dance floor for months!  The kid did not disappoint.  He basically spent the entire time on the dance floor.  Both him and Ashlyn were really bustin' a move!



The next morning was Easter and the Easter Bunny came to visit us in our hotel room!  The kids were soooo excited when they woke up.  The Easter Bunny even left eggs hidden in Grandma and Grandpa's hotel room so the kids and their cousin had a great time hunting for eggs. 

 After the egg hunt, we had breakfast, said our goodbyes and made the trek home.  We traveled through 7 states in less than 12 hours!  After being gone for two weeks we were so glad to be home.  Back to reality and, most importantly, back to Oliver!
Now, we get a two week break before we travel to California for wedding number two!
