After Meg's wedding, we knew Jack's wedding would be here in the blink of an eye. And it was! We were so excited for it. We left Wednesday after work because we figured the 6 hour drive would be best for
Mary Hyatt us if she slept most of the way. Although she cried and fussed a little at the beginning, she was perfect most of the ride. She did wake up about an hour before we got there and she was definitely ready to get out of her seat. Thankfully Aunt Sally rode with us so she could be Ben's co-caption and help with the directions, and I could sit in the back to try to entertain miss priss. As soon as we got there, we all headed in and went right to sleep. When we woke up the next morning, we were all ready to go! Some little girl was super excited to be on "vacation" staying in a cabin with all of the Adams'.
We spent the first day just walking around and getting a feel for the area. Ben's parents took us to the spot where the wedding would take place. It was unbelievable. Absolutely gorgeous!!
On Friday Ben got up and went to play golf with all of the groomsmen and Ben's parents headed out to start setting up and preparing for the rehearsal dinner that night. Sally, me, and Mary Hyatt hung around the cabin for a while and then ventured out and about while we waited on the Ingrams (so weird! :)) to get there. When they arrived, we all headed out to lunch. It was so great to get to see them and to hear about how life as newlyweds was going. After lunch we walked around and happened to stumble upon a little dockhouse with canoes and paddle boats in it. We couldn't resist a quick ride!
Mary Hyatt was itching to get in to that water! Luckily they had a life jacket small enough to fit her. She didn't even mind putting it on! I think she knew she was about to get in the boat!
By this time of the day Mary Hyatt had had enough. We headed back to the cabin so she could take a good nap before the rehearsal. She sacked out as soon as I put her on the bed!
Want proof of all her mischeif.... here she is with a mouth full of rocks. I literally had turned my head for 2 seconds and when I turned back around this is what I saw....
Yep, that was just as good as it got. So we left and headed to the dinner which was absolutely beautiful. Ben's mom and a few of her friends actually did the arrangments and decorated themselves and it was absolutely gorgeous. Jack and Courtney both looked amazing and looked so happy. It was seriously so perfect! I wish I had a picture to show you, but I didn't even take my camera with me after I saw how busy I was with Mary Hyatt at the rehearsal. Mary Hyatt was ok for the beginning of the dinner but by the time the toasts started, she was done. I stood out in the parking lot and bounced her trying to get her to sleep, and though I could tell she was totally exhausted, she kept fighting it. As soon as the toasts were over, Ben came out and we headed home to get the princess some rest for the next big day when she would gain a new (official) Aunt!
