Seems lately it takes me longer and longer to get these posts up. I blame it on the kids, or Erin, maybe my allergies… but it is certainly not my fault. 😉 Anyway, it was just about a week ago that Erin, myself, and the kids made the trek across the USA to Cocoa Beach Florida. The reasons for the trip were many. First and foremost Jenny Ashpaw was getting married! Then there was Erin who had to work and visit come Caterpillar people… and rounding out the list was some beach vacation time as well as a trip to Disney for Caden and I.
All and all things went well. Caden and I had to take a separate flight to Florida but he was a trooper and behaved very well. Same for Wyatt who went with Erin on a direct flight. Once we arrived we got checked into our condo and spent the rest of the day relaxing (drinking) and getting ready for the week (more drinking). Erin had to do some work so she was gone most of the next day, but between my awesome child watching skills (not really) and help from the rest of the family (thank you!!!!) I was able to manage both kids and the beach on my own.
Later that week Caden and I joined Steph, Andy, Jackson, Heather, Jeff, Andrew, and Caroline at Disney Magic Mountain. We had a fantastic day and even with the lines, heat, and crowds the kids did amazing. By the end everyone was beyond wore out, but for the most part were in good moods for most of the day.
Then came Jenny’s wedding. I can never put into words how amazing and beautiful the ceremony was so I am not going to even attempt it. I will just say that it was an amazing night and I was very happy to have been there to see it. Thomas and his family are great people and I have no doubt Jenny and him are going to have a long and happy marriage. As a side note, any wedding that ends up with a good part of the bridal party in the pool is destined to be something to remember.
So that was it… A week of sun, fun, and a wedding. I took a bunch of photos, some of which I haven’t even posted yet. But if you would like to check out the ones I have you can find them on the Greatlandings Photo Site in two separate albums. First is in the Vacation category under Cocoa Beach Vacation 2013 and the second is under Weddings and titled Jenny and Thomas Bird Wedding. Check them out and let me know what you think!
Congrats to Jenny and Thomas and thank you to all the family for helping us out that week! Good times!
