Wedding Weekend

Miss Kinley has discovered her tongue.
I apologize to Kinley's day care providers this week: We just might have spoiled her a little bit this weekend.

But just look at that face! Wouldn't you want to spoil her, too?
It was Abby's and Derek's wedding weekend, but it was special for the rest of us, too, since the whole family was together.
She and Grandpa watched as the bride and groom took pre-wedding photos. Kinley's Daddy stayed with her in the church nursery during the actual ceremony. But after I got done cutting the cake at the reception, I held her while she slept amidst the loud music and revelry.

In this case, the phrase, "Slept like a baby" held true. Just don't ask her mother whether it's accurate at 3 o'clock in the morning.

We weren't the only culprits when it came to holding a napping baby. Playing with Great-Grandma Moore can tire a girl out. Grasping is such intense work. You might just fall asleep in the middle of it.

Kinley also spent some time bonding with the youngsters in the family. One greeted her with kisses.

Another was a little more tentative about the interloper at Ma's house.
Neelly, Kinley's second cousin
The bride and the groom didn't have all the fun last weekend.

But, like I said, there should probably be combat pay for day care workers following a fun-filled family weekend.


  1. Neelly's face is spot-on in the picture with her and Kinley. Too funny.

    1. I thought it was funny, too! But I got the many faces of Neelly with the cute one in the car also!

  2. These are just precious! Thanks for sharing!

  3. She is a doll, Kim! Enjoyed the pictue and article about Randy in the Hutch paper. The population numbers for Stafford County were disheartening along with the farmer numbers. Too many houses for sale in Stafford! Your mother looks great! Enjoy your blog.

    1. Thanks Lori! We are sure enjoying her. Yes, the photo was good of Randy and, unfortunately, the article was accurate in terms of outward migration. But, still, we feel very fortunate to live and work in this community. My parents are doing well.
