On Saturday morning, one of my best friends from college, Brooke, and her husband, Aaron, brought their kids, Avery and Eli, to the hotel to swim with our kids. It was SO nice to catch up with Brooke and Aaron! It had been way too long! I definitely wish we lived closer to them so we could get together more often. After we had lunch, Brooke and Aaron left and our youngest two took a nap (Kayley was wiped out from all of that swimming!). In retrospect, we shouldn't have let Kayley take a nap. We had to wake her to get ready for the wedding and it wasn't pleasant for anyone.
The wedding was at Happy Apple Celebrations, an apple orchard. It was a beautiful ceremony and the bride looked beautiful! Unfortunately, all of my pictures of Missy were blurry or too far away. I'll wait until she posts some on Facebook! The wedding was a little warm though as it was in the 90s and an outdoor wedding. Ryan and Kayley didn't handle the heat very well so Andy took them back to the shade during the ceremony. Kayley came back halfway through and had a mild (but relatively quiet) freak out about a grasshopper that was near her.
Ryan wasn't too interested in sitting at the table during the reception so he and Andy spent a lot of time outside.

Sunday morning involved more swimming before we headed home.
