Mary, Jules and I got back from Michigan around 8:00 Sunday night. We had a GREAT time! It was so fun to see the Bush family and to see Andy and Val get married. We had a great time at the reception and Mary had a blast struttin' her stuff out on the dance floor. She has some signature moves that she liked to show off!
Jules was a little clingy all weekend - I think it was overload meeting all those new people. She would scream and burst out crying when some of the family members came near her. Plus I think it was difficult to be away from daddy. It sure was for mommy too. I will probably not take another trip with the girls without him. SO MUCH work! I had dreams of a leisurely weekend (I even brought all of my magazines that I have been dying to get caught up on), taking a bubble bath and maybe even catching a nap. I thought there would be plenty of hands to help out with Jules. Well there were, but she wasn't having any of it. I couldn't even walk away without her crying out. Oh well. It was still a great weekend and she looked so stinkin cute at the wedding that I wasn't upset at all.
My dad's family is the absolute best. We can get together every couple of years and pick up right where we left off. It is kind of crazy to see the circle of life. We used to be the young ones everyone ohhed and awwed over and then it was my little sister Courtney's generation, now they are the ones getting married and we are the ones having babies! My cousins are so much fun and we are ALL hilarious when we get together - the family knows what I mean!!! Plus it is great to see my dad cut loose a little bit when he is around his brothers! Plus he had a great time hanging out with his "girls".
Val and Andy are so great and she is absolutely adorable and amazing! We are so glad she is part of the family!!!!
