The Wedding I Missed

This weekend marks 4 months since my baby brother Jordan married the lovely Kailee in the Columbia River temple. Here is what I missed.
The girls were so excited to be the flower girls. Sydney loved her "real flower crown."

The story is that they took their job very seriously. Apparently Sydney floated down the aisle tossing petals in a very balletic way.
But they are 4 years old so naturally they began swinging their buckets around, then banging them together until someone had to take them away from the front to sit in the chairs. It's a good thing they are so cute!
Carter was technically the ring bearer but seeing that his clothes were exactly the same as the groomsmen, he promptly took on that role. He was very smitten by Kailee's big brother. He is an interesting character. Tough on the outside (a navy seal, sleeve tattoo's, a girlfriend that had an MTV show) but was apparently the nicest guy ever. He treated Carter like one of the big boys and helped him through an emotional moment when he was breaking down about them getting married and moving away. (Deep down I think he hoped Kailee would wait for him!)
Bummer that I missed it but at least I had a good excuse!

How cute! Carter and Sydney look adorable as usual and I love that Carter made a new "tough guy" friend. Isn't it crazy that we sacrifice so much to have babies? Today, just for a minute or two, I wondered if it was really worth it as I listened to all three of my kids screaming and crying at the top of their lungs. :)
