Wedding on the Farm


Chris's younger brother Shawn got married this past weekend!! We made the trip down on Friday, and had a whole weekend of fun events to attend. I wanted to start with a picture of Shawn and Rebecca coming into the reception tent. They just looked so great, and the weather could not have been more beautiful!

Kim, Shawn and Chris at the Rehersal Dinner. Chris's mother found a sitter for Bradley, and we were able to attend the dinner and another party for Shawn and Rebecca on Friday night. It was great to see family and see Shawn's friends.

Chris is giving his toast at the rehersal dinner...something about a drunk Shawn in highschool standing in his suitcase??! And another story about Chris getting Shawn up on a horse and then hitting it as hard as he could. We are lucky these two are still alive from the stories they tell!

Kim gave a beautiful toast on Friday, and wrote a poem for Shawn too! It was sweet!

Rebecca and Shawn listening to the can see the look of concern!


Bradley was supposed to be the 'ring bearer' in the wedding. Things didn't go so well during the cermony. We could hardly get him to do it for the rehersal on Friday night. So I wasn't surprised when he walked up to the church entrance and didn't want to walk down the aisle with 250+ people watching. The mistress of cermony sent me down with him holding his hand. We were about halfway down the aisle when he started to let go, and I thought he was going to run up to Uncle Shawn. Well, I was wrong! He dug in his little heals and started to scream and cry in the middle of the huge aisle. After some chuckles from the crowd we made it to the front and got him a lollipop. Poor thing! He is just going through a really shy phase and did not want to be the center of attention. Falling down right outside of the church and cutting his knee didn't help the situation. We made it through, and he had an absolute blast at the reception.


He still looks cute even if he didn't want to walk down the aisle!

My most favorite moment of the night...Bradley dancing with HIS uncle Shawn. He just adores this man, and cannot wait to spend time with him. Well, Shawn danced for quite a while with Bradley, and he talked about it all day on Sunday. Bradley has always loved to listen to music, but he has just recently fallen in love with 'dancing.' He had a whole crowd beside the dance floor checking out his moves, some were a little interesting!

Daddy and Uncle Shawn dancing with the B-man


We were calling this the michael move. He would grab his pants and dance around!!! The best part was he kept making Uncle Shawn do it too!

Look at this child dancing with his Grandma!!! Adorable!!

We had such a great time at the wedding, and I know Bradley has been talking about it for the past two days. The reception was just beautiful, and it reminded me so much of my wedding on Chris's family farm. It brought back some great memories, and I can't believe how fast time flies. Our wedding night was so magical, and now five years have flown by. We are about to have another child, and life couldn't be better. Although seeing Chris all dressed up and dancing around on the dance floor makes me want to marry him again someday.
