The wedding was beautiful!!! I did not get too many pictures, I didn't want to get in the way of their photographer!! Leah's dress was gorgeous and she was a Beautiful Bride! I wish I had gotten a picture of Calvin's face as he saw her walk down the isle to become his wife.....priceless and gave me chills at the same could definitely see the love in his eyes.

I do believe everyone got out on the dance floor at least once......the kiddos of course stayed out there and they were adorable! OH!! and the bottom right my Dad was showing us he could skip!! lol He did do a better job than his Son n Law AKA Father of the Bride :)

More dance floor moments.......

Today KK had her field day while Nono had a water day. It was hard to be at both places at once, but I did get a couple of pictures of Nono (I had to sneak away just to get these!!) Nono came over to visit his little sister and even posed for a picture!!!

Fun with friends.......before Field Day began, the kiddos played on the colorful playground while all the tables were filled with water, mud, soap etc.... I used the pic of KK and her friend Chloe twice, but it is just one of my favorites!!!

Of course the first station KK chose was the WATER table (yes, she is my water baby) she will play in water for HOURS AND HOURS!!!

Then came the car wash, I think they didn't quite get the concept of CAR WASH....instead it was test drive a car off the lot!! lol FYI: I have had the song "AT THE CAR WASH" stuck in my head all day!!!

FUN FIELD DAY FRIDAY CONT'.............. Princess played at the mud table, and LOVED it!!! She even made me the best mud pie ever!! One little boy got mad at her because she accidentally slung mud on him (it was a very tiny bit) I couldn't help but to laugh to

The Bubble Station, had soooo many different colors, and if someone would have cooperated we could have had some really cute pictures, but I take what I can and hope for the best!!!

A few extra pictures......the two top right KK was pouting because there were no bikes for her to ride and refuse to go to another station, she was hiding her face so I couldn't post it to KK was not in the jumpy long, she said too many kids were in there being WILD!! We had to stop for a couple of water drinks to cool off, and even better they gave out popsicles and KK and her friend Chloe even got the same color!! We had such a fun day, I checked KK and Nono out early we went to IHOP for lunch and then we got a little bit of shopping done!!

These past few days have been a little rough for me, personally and spiritually...... and then I see this outside!!

It was like, God speaking to me and then I find a book in my car (which I am not really sure where or how it got there) and these are a few of the verses that stood out to me and I will keep them close to my heart to remind me who is ALWAYS in control;

...... and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, The Lord is my portion; therefore I WILL wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:21-26

For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, DO NOT FEAR; I WILL HELP YOU. Isaiah 41:13

We live by faith not by sight. II Corinthians 5:7

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, FAITHFUL in prayer. Romans 12:12

and this last one is a verse I have held onto for as long as I can remember and it has ALWAYS pulled me through and will continue to do so.....

Jesus looked at them and said, "with man this IS impossible, but with God ALL things are possible. Matthew 19:26

TANGLED FUN...............PART 2

Sorry, it has taken me a bit to get the 2nd part posted.....for some reason (and I have NO clue) my computer will not let me edit or post???? My Hubby was sweet enough to let me use his to play catch up, until I can figure mine out??? ANYWHOOO...

KK had lots of family and friends share her magical day! It looked like everyone had TANGLES of fun!!

I handed out goody bags, but they had to fill them up with the goodies......They had draw Flynn Rider's nose on their wanted posters to get Pascal filled with jelly beans, They had to either draw Rapunzel's hair or paint a scene to get a paint set, to get a Royal Star they had to find a princess crown and to get the magical flower rings you just had to find them since they are rare and very well hidden. My little nephew enjoyed the Buzz water gun that was in his goody

KK pouted because she was ready to open all her cool presents her friends had brought. Gan told her she had to be all smiles before she could open them (he smile appeared rather quickly) ha ha... she really received all kinds of cool stuff.....Tangled Tower, the boat, Tangled play set, book with magical brush, Gigi the doll and book (WITH STICKERS!!!!! as KK said), clothes, barbies, singing Rapunzel doll, Royal Princess bubbles, beach towels, Tangled flip flops, fancy jewelry box, games, Fancy Nancy bedroom, Sea Monkeys (that I can not wait to "help" her do) , and make up and of course her 2nd Tangled hair (her first one was really too tangled to even try an use She honestly LOVED every single present she opened!!! THANK YOU!!!

The nights finale was to make a wish and send off our wish lanterns into the night sky in honor of our Princess KK's Birthday. The only problem had to be a calm windLESS night, in which it was sooo NOT!! I was disappointed (you see this was my most favorite part I had been looking forward to!!) I was more excited than the kiddos were :( Then THANKS TO DENNIS V......he had an idea.....FISHING LINE!!!! YAY!! My disappointment quickly disappeared and excitement took over once again!!! It was quite ummmmm.....not sure whether to use the word exciting or comical???? either way it was not only MAGICAL, but THE BEST!!! well except for the part where we had a small fire.....the fuel pack fell out of the lantern and landed in our back yard....EVERYTHING is okay! We all whispered our wishes into our hands and when the lantern started to rise into the beautiful night sky we released our wishes as well.....

KK's Grub Pub served in the satchel (pizza rolls), FlynnRider in a Tangle (pig in blankets), magical flowers (cheese puffs), Rapunzel's tower (chocolate covered pretzel sticks), fruit and apples for Maximus, and of course Rapunzel's cake!!
