More of That Love Stuff, Plus Sand

It's Saturday, so there must be another wedding. Yes, indeed! Another of our dancers got married today in a gorgeous ceremony in the Rotunda at City Hall, involving heraldic trumpeters, a boys choir, a string quartet, a pastor (hers), a judge (his), and a lot of stress on the part of the guests as we watched the entire wedding party descend the massive staircase in step to the music. Major kudos, as the procession was flawless, even for the ladies in heels and the adorable flower girl and ringbearer (photo left).

Because of the extended time between ceremony and reception, we would have had to leave Q with a babysitter for half the morning, the whole afternoon and evening, so we reluctantly RSVP'd regrets for the dinner. Having been gone all last week, I didn't feel right leaving the little guy again so soon. I'll have to get the scoop from other friends, but I'm sure the reception was spectacular.

The Getaway Car

Instead of fine dining and dancing, I took Q to the park while SwingDaddy rode a bike race. The sand pit beckoned, and Q had a good ol' time, giggling and rolling in the sand. Great fun, but a huge mess. After a thorough dusting-off, we headed home, straight for the bath.

OMG! Look at all those stairs. I'd have been on pins and needle until all the wedding party have safely landed. And what lovely getaway car. And your son is adorable in the sand, I'm sure not very adorable to clean sand later.

I think they should have one of those big gymnastics crash mats at the bottom, or maybe a bouncy castle to land in.

I have yet to learn my lesson of cleaning out sand from Ian's shoes, socks, and pockets at the park. I always forget, and then it pours out all over the house.
