Here comes the bride...

Zoey and Jack had a very, very special job to do this month. A close friend of the family, Bethany, was getting married and asked them to be a part of her special day. To put this into perspective, I've known Bethany since at LEAST 1990. It's on the pros of being from a small town.

Now, things have changed since the kids were in my sister's wedding:
Jack looks distracted and Zoey looks...well...mad. She cried for most of that weekend. 

This time around things were much better!

We waited before the wedding for pictures: 
 I had forgotten to paint Z's nails, hence her interesting arm reach. Her fellow flower girl is named Lila.
 There's my dapper Jack!
 See? Handsome.
 Awesome. He was so great!
 Of course, between pictures and the wedding, I took shots of the kids.

 Hi, Kaki! She was an honorary mother-of-the-bride, one of four with this "honorary" position.
 In the wedding I had a bad shot to capture them in action. Regardless, they were good up front.

 Best part: At some point, Zoey thought that they were praying. So she clasped her hands together. Then, she Tebow'd it and took a new. Great times! It's a shame I didn't get a picture of it!

Trav and Zoey waited patiently for our turn to go outside.
 My boys...
 Isn't he grand?
 There's my girl!
 Papa Gary came too!
 Smilllles!
 You can't expect me NOT to take pictures...
 ...can you?
 More flower girl awesomeness.
 Yup. I'll admit that Zoey plucked a flower.
 At least she enjoyed it.
 Usually she rips the petals off first. Classy, what can I say?
 He looks so grown up...
 Don't ask. I don't know.
 Oooo. Grown-up Jack!
 And then we were on the way to the reception...

The Rain Walk

Three things happened today:

1. Jack didn't have school due to an in-service day.
2. It rained. Then stormed. Then rained some more. 
3. I worked from home this afternoon to watch m'boy.

After all of that fun and games, we decided to take our camera out, hit the walking path and go for a little photo walk in the rain. 

 We saw so many beautiful things!
 Zoey wasn't loving the rain though.
The creek was high - it had only rained an inch and with up to four more inches (!!!) to go, this isn't going to be pretty tomorrow!
 Then I let the kids go crazy.
 JUMP!!!
 My camera doesn't like low light, and as a result I got many shots like this.
 FLYING ZOEY!!!!
 Splash!
 Rain drops...shoes...hesitation....
 My boy was wet.
 My girl was wet.
 We caught raindrops on our tongues.

 And jumped in more puddles!
 Actually they are making "muddy" water.
 We were soaked!
 The fun part of rain is that it brings out the worms, including this giant:

 Bye worm!
 Water is funnn....
 Cheese!
 Hugs!
 And love...about 2 minutes before Zoey slipped and skidded down the side walk.

I'll post the kids' photos at some point. They are pretty awesome. :-)
