In her short life, Audrey has flown numerous times, been to the west coast twice, and now, attended three weddings.
The most recent one was at the beginning of the month, when we traveled down to my parents’ childhood home of Portsmouth, Virginia for my cousin Beth’s wedding. Or, as Audrey knows her, bride.
All three of us had fun dressing up for the big event. (And we looked pretty spiffy, if I say so myself!)
Happily, my parents also made it down for the wedding, so Audrey had time for cuddles and hand-holding with Grandnan and Granddad.
Audrey seemed to enjoy the wedding overall but is was the bride she was particularly, no, intensely, interested in. She kept calling out “Bride and groom, dance!” and insisted on being carried over to the vicinity of the newlyweds.
When Beth took Audrey for a spin around the dance floor, Audrey was in heaven.
The day prior to the wedding we went to the Portsmouth City Park, where Audrey got to ride the Pokey Smokey II, before we went to a family BBQ at my aunt Ruth’s house.
It was a beautiful day, so we had to pause for a few photos by the blooming flowers. Audrey put on her best “cheese.”
It was a wonderful weekend, from the lovely wedding to the biscuit breakfasts with my parents. Kenji and I reminisced about our own big day, and how much has happened in our lives together in the seven years since then.
With another wedding coming up this fall, Audrey won’t have too long to wait until she has another bride to chase after.
