The Richmond Wedding

So here are LOTS of pics from our Richmond trip last weekend. I'll try not to be too wordy...just wanted to share some of my favorite shots.

We spent some of Saturday morning at a local park...LOVE this one of Ben!

Here's Daddy pushing the kids on the tire swing. Ben loved this one so much that he spent a bit too much time on it. He and Corey (cousin) rode and cackled for a looooooong time. When we returned to the hotel, Ben had to sit on the curb with his head in a trash bag for a few minutes! He never actually lost his breakfast, but I think he learned his lesson...

We spent the rest of the morning splashing in the hotel pool and eating lunch poolside. The kids then took naps to regroup for the evening's festivities.

The ceremony and reception were held at the historic Tuckahoe Plantation, Thomas Jefferson's boyhood home. The setting was absolutely gorgeous, as was the wedding!

Here comes the bride, Sarah, escorted by her parents. I love the moment captured here - the bride glowing, her father looking a bit stoic, and her mother taking in her daughter's beauty.

The groom, Jim's cousin, Duncan. This is the best one I had of him. He didn't actually wear flowers in his hair for the ceremony...sorry Duncan! ...not that it's a bad look! :-)

Jim's big sis and her hubby - Amy and Dave...

Nana and Pop-Pop, Jim's parents - Bert and Jeff...

Ben knows just how to play it for Mommy's camera. I love it when he wants to have his picture taken!

There were so many cool "droopy" trees on the property. The kids loved this branch!

A rare family shot. Gotta love Ben's "serious" face!

Stick a fork in 'em! The tired kiddos found a place to sit while waiting for Daddy to pick us up. Check out my Mondo-Mega Mommy Bag! ...and we don't even have diapers and bibs anymore!!!! :-)

We returned home Sunday morning in less than half the time it took us to get there Friday afternoon! 'Twas a terrific weekend - the wedding was beautiful in every way, the kids were well-behaved, and I got a rockin' dress out of it!

Best Wishes, Sarah and Duncan!
