Weekend with the cousins

The kids and I went to Dallas this weekend so I could keep Noah and Chloe for a few days while Meagan and Jimmy were honeymooning and my parents were at Hayley's Maui wedding. We arrived Thursday night and left this morning (Sunday morning). Jordan was at a coaching convention out of town all weekend so it was just me and the fabulous 5!

Friday morning a friend of mine, Roni, came over with her 3 kids. All of the kids had fun playing together in Nana's backyard!

Bath time giggles :)

Family Worship with the cousins

A little bed time snuggles before lights out

I stumbled on an awesome park just a few miles from my parents house. We went pretty early so we were the only ones there.

They burned off some good energy before we headed to sonic for some tasty drinks

Sonic drinks on Nana's awesome screened in porch! (Audrey was napping)

They were pretty wiped out (it wasn't even lunch time)

Silly Hunter had fun with Nana's masks

We loaded up the car after Audrey woke up and headed to see papa and vivi for a few minutes

The kids had fun playing with her beautiful roses that were in full bloom.

We left after about 30 min of playing and went home for naps. Madison woke up not feeling well at all after nap. She had been fighting something all weekend but had taken a sharp turn suddenly. I took her to urgent care and discovered she had pneumonia :/ poor baby got sick all over the place while we were there and I had no extra clothes! She got some antibiotics and we headed back home and she passed out for the night....she ended up sleeping with me for the night.

The next morning Noah and Chloe were picked by their dad and the kids and I loaded up and drove back to Houston. What a fun weekend with cousins! (minus the urgent care trip :)

Hayley and Casey's wedding

Hayley and Casey were married today on the beautiful island of Maui! Their wedding was at 8:00am (sunrise wedding). They got married on the north shore near Mama's fish house, the best restaurant on the island, with the best ocean views. They decided to just take the parents with them for the ceremony so my mom graciously sent videos and pictures throughout the whole ceremony so the siblings could watch it happen as close to live as possible. After the ceremony they all ate at Mama's fish house and then Hayley and Casey boarded a tiny plane to the big island Hawaii for the honeymoon. My parents stayed in Maui for the rest of the week for a fun trip of their own. What a wonderful way to get married! She looked absolutely stunning.

Meagan and Jim's wedding

We headed to Dallas Friday morning before the wedding and arrived at Papa and Vivi's house just in time for nap time. Maddie had napped on the way in the car so she got to have some one on one time with Papa. He gave her a manicure and pedicure to get her all pretty for the wedding!

My girly girl is lovin this!

Audrey woke up and snuggled with Papa for a while too while we got ready for the rehearsal. Papa stayed home with all 3 kids while Jordan and I went to rehearsal and the dinner. Vivi was in charge of decorating the reception site so she spent Friday night till about 11:30 at the hotel. We joined her after the dinner to help but she already had most of the big stuff done.

Saturday morning I had a lot of random errands to run for the wedding. I took Hunter with me and we stopped and got his hair cut.

I love taking the kids out one at a time for some one on one time together....oh the conversations we have! It wouldn't be an outing with mommy without a stop for a special treat! Hunter's choice...the donut shop. He was my little errand buddy. It was so much fun hanging out with just him all morning!

Jordan and I went on to the wedding early so I could help Meagan get into her dress. She looked STUNNING!

The guys waited outside 

Vivi spent the morning finishing up some last minute decorating at the hotel. Papa stayed behind and got Hunter dressed and ready and then brought him to the church right when the wedding started. The girls stayed at the house with Rebekah so they could nap during the ceremony and then she got them dressed and brought them up to the church just as the ceremony ended so they could be in the pictures. It was SO nice to have all of these extra hands! Jordan and I had a part in the ceremony so it was nice to have them all help with the kids during the ceremony, especially the girls getting to take a nap, otherwise it would have been a long day for them.

He looked SO handsome. He insisted on the tennis shoes because the new ones hurt. It wasn't worth it to fight the issue because I could SO relate. 

Meagan and Jimmy's kids were in the wedding as bridesmaids and the ring bearer. 

The ceremony was beautiful!

Daddy daughter dance

This was precious. Hunter and Madison immediately wanted to be on the dance floor. The MOMENT we walked into the reception they were all over it. I loved this... Hunter asked Vivi to dance and Maddie asked her daddy.

Heart Melted

Madison did this twirl all night long. She loves dancing! Hunter kept working on his break dancing moves. He was all over that dance floor. They had a blast together.

Maddie and her Papa. So precious

Nana and Audrey hit the dance floor too!

This girl is next! 14 days and counting!
