After our family spent most of the week enjoying our vacation with attractions like the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and Legoland, the time had finally come for us to celebrate the actual reason we had flown out to San Diego to begin with…
Your Uncle Jake and Aunt Stephanie’s wedding!
We didn’t have to drive the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander very far. In fact, the wedding venue, Tom Ham’s Lighthouse was so close, we could have just walked. But hey, we had a fancy ride so took advantage of it.
I had very high expectations of what their wedding would be like, with good reason. Both Jake and Stephanie had been planning it intensively for many months.
As I imagined, my expectations were valid. Their wedding made me think of a movie wedding: It was right there on the water. There was a string section providing the music. Jake and Stephanie even read vows to each other, which were both well thought out.
It was classy, extravagant, and yet not over the top. It was the perfect wedding ceremony.
Of course Mommy made sure we were all properly dressed for the occasion. Your brother Jack and I enjoyed our bowties, and as for you, Mommy found such a beautiful dress for such a beautiful little girl.
As you sat in Mommy’s lap during the ceremony, you took it all in. You paid attention the whole time.
However, I couldn’t tell you about the wedding if I didn’t mention how you made everyone in our section laugh during one of the most serious parts of the wedding.
The officiator was explaining, “The ring is a perfect circle. It is a symbol of…”
That was the sound that came from your bottom.
What made it so particularly funny was that it was from a precious little baby girl in a lovely dress- a baby girl who was sincerely appreciating the wedding ceremony. You were completely oblivious to the hilarious interruption you had just made.
Needless to say, anyone within a 15 foot radius of you couldn’t help but laugh, or at least pretend not to.
But fortunately, the wedding went on, and now you officially have a beautiful new aunt.
The wedding couldn’t have gone any better. It was a like a dream.
