Hannah and I have a new skill to add to our resumes. We are now experienced flower girls. Our Uncle Drew and Aunt Kate got married last weekend. Drew is the younger brother to both our daddies.

Last Friday, we went to a thing called a "rehearsal." Hannah and I decided that flower girls should wear flowers to get into the right frame of mind. So we did.
Even though we were supposed to ride in the wagon, Hannah and I thought we would be excellent wagon pullers. We had to take turns. I heard a lot about "sharing" this weekend. So we took turns pushing and pulling the wagon. Then, if Kari Lynne didn't feel up to it, one of us could take over as wagon puller.
There is a lot of waiting around during a wedding rehearsal, we found out. So Hannah's Grandma, who also happens to be named Kim, helped us sing, "If You're Happy and You Know It." It seemed appropriate for a wedding. If the wedding singers developed a cold or allergy, we were ready and willing to perform. We could have even added dance moves to our wedding serenade. We wanted to be good helpers, ready for anything.
Then, it was was Saturday. Drew & Kate were getting married! Hannah and I were so excited!

I don't know whether Emma, the photographer, got photos of Hannah and me as we came down the aisle during the wedding. Hannah's Grandma waited with us at the back, and we sang songs and read books until it was time for our big debut.
My Grandma didn't get any photos of us in the green wagon when we were all dressed up. Her job was to wait where the ceremony was going to be.
After the ceremony, Hannah helped freshen up my lipstick so I'd be ready to party.
The Barn at Schwinn Produce Farm. They may have just a few less blooms this week on their mums.)
But, if you're looking for two flower girls for your upcoming nuptials, Hannah and I are available.We think we can get a recommendation from the bride and groom (until Aunt Kate remembers our behavior during the professional photo shoot).
But, in our defense, we did make it down the aisle in the wagon. (Please remember that when you're writing the recommendation, you guys!)
Until next time,
Kinley Marie, Professional Flower Girl
