We had a GREAT weekend filled with good food and celebrations here in Cleveland. Why? My sister-in-law Mary got married!
Thursday night was the rehearsal dinner and it was right in her parents (B’s parents) backyard. We had a great backyard bbq and the weather was perfect!
Some of the food – brisket, pasta, asparagus, salad and bread!
My parents also came into town to help watch the kids during the festivities. So, Friday morning my mom and started the day with mother-daughter pedicures. My feet needed it!
My parents helped watch the kids at the ceremony in the church. FW was pretty good but LM got fussy about halfway through. I was so glad they were there to help out and of course spend time with us!
FW took some selfies while we waited for the event to begin …
After the church it was time for the party! The event took place at an old arcade downtown and it was a beautiful location. FW loved dancing and of course seeing the beautiful bride!
Me and my other sister-in-law hung out as well (we also shared an Uber home since our husbands – brothers of the bride – went to the after party).
B and I got to dance a little after my parents took the kids home. It was nice to have some kid-free time.
It was a late night, so Saturday was pretty slow. We all took naps (bonus points since both LM and FW napped at the same time that afternoon!) but then went out for a walk in the late afternoon. We stopped a playground for FW.
And then walked to get some pizza! Mushroom, pepperoni and roasted garlic, yum!
After FW was in bed, B and I watched I, Tonya. Have you seen it? I thought it was pretty good. I’m not super into figure skating and didn’t know much about the incident. I know it was a movie, but I still felt like I learned a lot.
Sunday morning, B made us all pancakes! Even a special blueberry bear for FW.
Then, the four of us went for a run outside. The weather was so much better – low 70s and not humid – and it made it much more bearable than last week’s hot and humid run. I pushed FW, while B pushed LM in the stroller.
Total, we got in about 3.7 miles – my longest(and fastest!) postpartum run to date!
Sunday afternoon was another lazy one – we all took naps again (!yay!) but played outside, went for a walk and played with my newest toy – a RHUMBA! I bought it for Prime Day and LOVE it so far.
That about sums up our wedding weekend. Still one more to go (my cousin’s) this summer!
Some questions for you:
- Did it cool down near you?
- Do you have a smart vacuum or robot vacuum?
