Little Climber

Jake is going through that stage where he thinks he needs to climb into, on top of, and over everything possible. It actually cracks me up. We put a huge basket on the stair landing to block him from climbing up the stairs. He somehow puts his little toes on the edge of the stair and then throws himself into the basket, climbs through all the shoes that are in it, and then climbs out the other end by the stairs, high-tailing it up the stairs as quick as possible so I can't catch him. He also likes to sit in his toy boxes and play with his toys. This is a picture of him sitting in my friend's cooler after a camping trip we went on. Funny. :)

I've been replaced...

I came up to bed the other day and this is what I found.

Two good friends of ours got married yesterday evening (Matt & Stacey). Emily had the privilege of being one of the flower girls in the wedding. She was sick, so I was really worried that she wouldn't be able to make it, but she did great. The bride (Stacey) was so stunning and elegant. I had never been to a Catholic wedding before, so that was interesting. Matt is Jewish, so it was fun to see some of the Jewish traditions, as well.

Here are the flower girls with the bride before the ceremony.

So excited!

Emily and Jill waiting to line up for the procession.

Here they come!

The reception afterwards was so beautiful. It was definitely the most formal/fanciest wedding reception I have ever been to.
Here is Emily dancing with the groom (right before she collapsed & we took her home. She was SO tired!)
It was a really fun night (or really 2 nights with the rehearsal and dinner) with some great friends. I am so excited for Matt and Stacey and happy that they let us be a part of their awesome day. :)
