weekend and wedding thankimony
I love weddings for all of the many obvious reasons-the true love talk, the "something fancy", sentimentality and spirituality,the fixing up and getting cute, the pictures-but also because they are generally not very kid friendly. No, actually they are better then NOT kid friendly; weddings demand the appearance of being kid friendly without actually being so. So, you can dress your children all up in adorable, expensive clothes, gawk at them for a few minutes, take pictures, and then send them away. And then, you get to mix and mingle and adore the bride and groom and make them feel awkward and remember your own wedding and how much you really love your spouse. Thank you Cameron and Ashley for getting married; you guys rock, and even though it means I have to share my name, I am so happy that Ashley Jane has joined the rapidly expanding extended Burr family. I would like to thank my adorable, precious little handsome son for so profoundly misbehaving so that we could send him to camp out at Nana's house while we enjoyed ourselves at the wedding festivities; and actually, he did a fine job with his momentary responsibility to look cute for pictures. And I also want to thank my wonderful parents for wanting to have him all weekend. And my sister for taking us to the airport. And my in laws for doing their part in such an excellent and beautiful wedding, and still squeezing in time to spend with us and Eli. And Ben and Wia for letting us stay at their house. And Heather and Shea for being awesome. And Matt for taking an excellent picture of us and Marc for having a cool beard. Weddings just make you love everyone... Good times.
Oh, and Wes for picking us up from the airport and Tamara for watching Duane-I can't believe how many people it took for me to have such a fun weekend! But thank you.
