We left Friday at about 4:30pm to head south back to Louisville for the weekend to attend Chris' cousins wedding. We made it to Louisville at about 9:00pm. Grandma was gracious enough to let us stay at her house. With 6, it makes travel a little more interesting. Grandma worked out all of the sleeping arrangements since she had other house guests as well. Saturday morning we got up and had breakfast and started getting ready for the days festivities. Pam and Tami both requested that I curl their hair. This was a first for both of the girls. They both looked very pretty - as you can see in the pictures. The wedding was beautiful. The reception after the wedding lasted until about 7:00pm. We stayed till the very last dance. Madie and Max danced to, I think, every song. Pam and Tami were a little harder to convince. They did do the duck/chicken dance, which we had prepared them for in advance.
After the wedding we headed to my sisters house. As always, it was so good to see her and my nephews and niece. Madie and Max convinced us to let them spend the night at their house.
Sunday we went to church and then headed to the Queen of Sheba, a Ethiopian restaurant. All of the children were good sports about eating different cuisine. They even ate with their hands, as is tradition with Ethiopian food. Everyone enjoyed the experience. Once we finished lunch and collected our luggage it was time for goodbyes. For me, it never gets any easier. My heart aches every time we leave. But back to Fort Wayne and my comfy bed. Our journey lead us back to Fort Wayne at about 9:00 pm. What a crazy but fun 48+ hours it was. I think we will all go to bed early tonight :)
