first (family of 4) road trip

At the end of June we loaded up our loaner Tahoe (that's a whole other post) and headed to Fredericksburg for the weekend.  My uncle was getting married.  We left early Saturday morning and drove all day.  We got to Fredericksburg just in time for naps, however one of our little boys decided he didn't need one.  I'll let you guess who that was!

At 6pm we headed to the cutest little venue for the wedding.  
This was Pearson's first wedding to attend to we tried to explain to him that the ceremony was like church and we had to sit quietly, then the reception was like a party and we could have a lot of fun.  He immediately ask, "Der gonna be cake?" Ha! Can you tell we have been to a few birthday parties lately?
Since the wedding was outside and it was a little warm, we left Nash's helmet at the hotel.  He got to enjoy the evening helmet free.  He was absolutely perfect for the evening. 
My cousin Cole walked Nonnie down.  
My three cousins Mackenzie, Ashton and Kennedy were bridesmaids along with my new cousin Kennedy, but I totally forgot to take a picture of her. Yes, I now have two cousins named Kennedy!!  
My new cousin Hudson walk his Mom down the aisle.  Marshella looked so pretty.  
Pearson actually did pretty good during the ceremony as long as he could stand on Matt's legs to see!!
My cousin's are all wonderful singers.  All the girls and my uncle sang a beautiful song to Marshella
I may or may not have planned our outfit to match so we could get a cute family picture while we were there!!  
Pearson will think every wedding we go to from here on out is boring because they had all sorts of yard games for the kids to play.  
My cousin Walter was playing with his new Corn Hole set that he will be taking to LSU with him in the fall!! 
Pearson ADORES my cousins.  He had a blast with them all evening. 
Nash was seriously so good all evening.  He even took a little snooze in the stroller.  It's so nice having a easy going, go with the flow baby!!
They had the best live music at the reception.  The singer/guitarist is a writer in Nashville and has written songs for Garth Brooks, George Strait and Brooks and Dunn! He's a pretty big deal in Nashville. 
The new couple!!  We are so happy to welcome Marshella into our family.  She is absolutely wonderful and I'm so excited to have a new aunt. 
Pearson got a wish and got a piece of cake.  He ate just about every last bite of it too. 
Even after waking up early and not taking a nap, this little guy was still dancing the night away at 10pm.  
Even though it was a super quick trip, we had a fun time in Fredericksburg and enjoyed seeing all of our family!!
