Wedding Weekend Extras

We had such a fun weekend down in Dripping Springs for my brothers wedding. The weather was beautiful and it was so great to see family! For lunch on Saturday the men (minus Kevin) headed to The Saltlick while we grabbed some beers and pizza at Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza.
This place is awesome and super kid friendly!
We were here during Hayden's morning naptime so she snoozed on me. Once the pizza arrived she was ready to dig in.

Grayson and Ryan had their own beds and they were THRILLED. This was Grayson's first time in a "big boy" bed and he thought he was hot stuff. They slept great - and so did we!

Before heading back to Dallas we grabbed an early lunch at Nutty Brown Cafe

The newlyweds joined us too!

Luckily, for the drive home, these kiddos were OUT ! 
Sign of a successful weekend :)

My little brother got married y'all!
We had such an amazing time celebrating the happy couple. The wedding was beautiful - kinda makes me want to do it all over again! 

 Check out these cuties!
Totally ready for their big performance.  The wedding coordinator told me to go sit and I totally should have stayed to help out. Our babysitter basically ended up carrying Hayden down the aisle...until I ran out and rescued her. Oops! I am sure she wasn't planning on actually being IN the wedding.  Apparently when they sat Hayden down in the wagon Grayson accidentally grabbed her too aggressively and maybe hit her in the eye?? (not sure on the details as this is told to me by Ryan). Anyhow, the wedding coordinator picked her up quickly and gave her to the sitter...so she just started walking (completely unsure of what to do). Once I saw what was happening I ran to her rescue. And then my three cuties performed their duties.

So excited to be in the wedding!
And this precious little flower girl
Look how giddy Claire is :) I love a blushing bride.
 The ceremony was beautiful - so happy for these two!

Onward to the reception
There were so many amazing details (that I clearly did not get pictures of) so I can't wait to see all the pictures from the photographer.

Party time :)
Although Ryan was a little tired. After the boys tore up the dance floor we headed back to the hotel...really wish we could have stayed the whole time but hopefully I can catch everything I missed on their wedding video!

Cheers to the happy couple! 
Welcome to the family Claire (Bear)!

Hayden 9 months

So happy for nine months!

Age: 9 months
Stats: Weighs 17lbs 12.5oz (40th percentile), Height 27.5 in (50th percentile), Head 44.2com (52nd percentile) wears size 6-12 months & has 2 teeth 
No shots at nine months well visit - but they do prick your toe to test iron levels. Little lady was determined to get that band-aid off!
Favorite Foods: Bananas, cheese, chicken, sausage, grilled cheese, mac n cheese, squishy pouches & Cheerios.

Words: lots and lots of blabbering
Favorite Activities: Eating, seriously this kid is happiest with a mouth full of food.  Clapping, swinging, music class, army-crawling, playing peek-a-boo & taking baths.
Favorite Things: She loves her brothers and always gets a huge smile when they come into a room.
Least Favorite Things: Staying still for a diaper change. And apparently nursing...little H has recently started screaming bloody mary when I attempt to nurse her. It's horrible. Sooooo that's that. I talked to her pediatrician about it today and he said it seems like she is trying to wean herself. I am not sure how I feel about it considering she is only 9 months old but we will see what happens over the next month.  
Signature Moves: Army-crawling (neither of the boys did this)
Love this little lady!

Last weekend we headed down to Dripping Springs for my brothers wedding! (eek! I still can't believe it). First stop - rehearsal dinner at Flora's!  Since we got in town mid-day we headed over to the restaurant to get everything set up. We had some amazing help and are so grateful for such wonderful friends and family! I should have taken a before and after pic because we really whipped it into shape with all the cute decor that T brought. It was bright and festive - even the restaurant employees were impressed!

Table centerpieces were so pretty - my pics don't really do justice. 

Aren't these flowers gorgeous? They were so bright and beautiful!

When we arrived for the dinner the boys spotted a large dirt/rock pile. And that was their babysitter for about an hour. They LOVED it! There were a lot of kids playing on it so they had a great time. 

Hanging with the groom-to-be!

I created a slideshow for the happy couple and plan to upload it at some point. I will put a link here once that happens. 
Such a fun night!!! AND so excited to see these two get hitched!

Grayson LOVED sharing with Hayden...and she loved it too!


So happy!
