One of my best friends from high school, Jenni Case, got married last weekend. This was quite momentous. Jenni has had, I think at least 14 proposals? That I know of at least. So I had to be there to meet the man who finally won her heart. I was able to visit Grand Junction for the reception, and got to fit in a lot of grandparent time over the long weekend.
Dad started showing Jack some simple magic tricks. Jack was astounded!
Jack made them reenact the snowman scene he did in drama class last week.
Sam had his first solids that week (see pics of that at the bottom). My folks enthusiastically offered him more meals. It's fun for them to be able to feed him, especially since he practically refuses bottles now. He ate banana and oatmeal and drank water from a cup. The faces he pulls here are from first trying them. After a few spoonfuls he was happy to eat more.
Jack and I made Valentine owls.
The beautiful bride and groom!
It's so nice that I can see these girls again for for our big life moments. Kristin is expecting her third baby (a girl #3) and I just had my baby to show off. And of course, seeing Jenni in a white wedding dress was amazing. She looked so happy, I'm so happy for her.
The reception was at a fun park and after the formalities they inflated 5 bouncy castles and the giant slide. Jack exclaimed in wide-eyed wonder "This place is AMAZING!"
After church Sunday, trying more food.
Sadly Mom got a flu bug. Dad had double duty entertaining. I felt bad that we were having so much fun while she was suffering in her room. At least it was a quick one. We were able to visit in the morning and play a little more. The drive home was lovely and the boys were well-behaved. I have two really great kids.
Sam's First Solids
I hadn't posted these photos yet, so let me squeeze them in. Mushed bananas were received with unsure faces, but he ate a tablespoon full, so they must have tasted good :-)
