Deena & Cody's wedding weekend

Last Friday we flew to Colorado for a family wedding. I was expecting a terrible flight with 3 screaming kids for 2 hours and overtired, crabby kids all weekend, followed by an equally nightmarish flight back to Milwaukee. Thankfully it wasn't too bad at all. (I'm still not ready to do it again any time soon!)

Ella was two days over the required 14 day age minimum thanks to my fabulous doctor! Our flight left at 7:30 am, so we (Paul and Rudy) decided we needed to be leaving the house by 5 am. We dropped the cars off, checked in, then got way slowed down going through security. I think they went through all our bags!!

Once on the flight, Lydia fell asleep as we took off, Ella slept the entire way and Grace ate almost an entire bag of Dum Dum suckers and read with Grandma Borneman. Yeah!

Friday night was the rehearsal followed by dinner at the Minturn Saloon. Grace liked hanging out with Kelsey (until the wedding when she was supposed to stand next to her).
Nothing is more fun than dancing on a wide open dance floor with cool cowgirl boots. (Thanks Sam & Maryann).
They even had cool sippy cups for the kiddie cocktails! And of course, Grandma has Ella. Although she had lots of competition to hold her all weekend.

The wedding was Saturday night. Grace was terrified as she walked down the aisle and slipped into Grandma & Grandpa's seat. Luckily they were in the second pew.

Here's Lydia and Grandpa reading the bible.
Ella's sleeping again.
By Sunday, both we were all exhausted. Here the girls are on the way to the airport.

I know these pictures are totally out of order. I took them from Alyssa's FB page. Somehow, we became terrible about not taking pictures of our kids this weekend. We never had the camera and when we did we obviously didn't take many pictures. We'll get better, I hope. Even if we don't, we'll be getting the Christmas pictures taken soon.
