Vacation Update - Part II


We were thrilled to head to the Toronto area to celebrate the wedding of two very special people.   Mark's stepbrother, BJ, and his amazing wife Beth are one of the sweetest couples I've ever seen.  Their wedding was beautiful and I'm so thankful they wanted Brianne and Bryce to be part of their wedding party!!

But before I get to far ahead of myself and jump to the super good stuff.......there was other good stuff. :)

Mark enjoyed the Bachelor Weekend at a cottage on a lake with the guys.  I could tell by the sunburn that he returned with that there must have been lots of fun in the sun!  While he was there, Brianne was spoiled rotten by her Grandma Margot and her Aunties. :)   They had a lovely time together and Brianne taught them all the songs from her Baby Signing Times video (yes - we traveled with a few episodes because she is that addicted to it!).

Brianne enjoyed seeing her Aunt Ada and Uncle Frank - and playing with their cat!

Bryce and I FINALLY made it to Canada (reference Vacation Update Part I....).  We enjoyed the rehearsal festivities on Friday night.  It is always so much fun with the Canadians - wish we didn't live so far away from them!

Brianne and her Uncle BJ - the Groom :)

Kiddos and their Aunt Ashley and Aunt Amy
Build-a-Bear Ring Bearer - how cute is that!  Brianne got a Build-a-Bear Flower Girl - sooo adorable!


The sun was shining and it was a perfect day for a wedding!

But first - we had to get daddy out of bed.  :)  The kids turned on the alarm radio to help get dad out of bed.
 And we had to get a morning work-out in....(our fancy hotel room had a tread mill in the least the kids had fun with it)


Lil' Shoes!

Cutest Lil' Ring Bearer EVER!

The wedding reception was tons of fun.  We were thankful that my parents came up and took the role of babysitter so that we could fully partake in the celebration festivities!  It was a fantastic evening!  A big congratulations to the newlyweds!  Love you guys!  

Summer Days

Post wedding we had some down time to enjoy relaxing by the pool and visiting with the fam.  The kids enjoyed swimming - and I'm hoping we can get Brianne into swim lessons soon because she kicks away like a little frog when she's in the water!

Sadly our time in Canada had to come to an end - but that meant we were NY bound for some time at my parent's place.  Stay tuned for Vacation Update Part III - a recap of our days enjoying country relaxing will follow shortly!
