Schroeder Wedding

  This past weekend we headed up to Springfield, MO for my cousin Breanne’s wedding.  We packed up the car and headed out Thursday after school.  Sophia was ok for about and hour and a half, so we stopped for dinner in Durant, OK.photo(7) photo(8) photo(9) playing in the car

Then we headed back out, she was super fussy until about 9:30 when she finally just passed out.  We arrived in  Springfield late that night around 12:30, checked in set up shop.  Sophia slept for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes when she decided it was time to play, we tried to get her to go back down with no luck, Zach drove her around Springfield and I got 3 hours of beauty rest and then we switched off and he got 3 hours of sleep.  Sophia did not go back down until 11:30 am while we were running some errands, then she thankfully took a 2 hour afternoon nap with me!  Later that night on Friday we had my cousin’s rehearsal dinner, which was beautiful and fun!  Sophia did so great.  She even slept all night long in her pack n play!photo(5)playing during the rehearsal dinner

Saturday morning Sophia and I got up and ate breakfast with all the Schroeder’s.  Then headed back to take a nap, mean while learning that my mom had to go to the ER in Springfield for kidney stones.  We were afraid she wouldn’t make the wedding at 1:30, but she was back and ready to go just in time.  The wedding was very beautiful, as was the bride.  Sophia did so amazingly well during the wedding.  She just sat and played very quietly and was such a little angel.  She loved dancing and running around with all of the kids at the reception as well.  So much in fact that she just collapsed in my arms during all the dancing and singing.  She was just so precious.  My aunt got a sitter for all the little ones back at the hotel, so we got to enjoy the rest of the reception baby free.  We had a wonderful time.

Sunday after breakfast we said our good-byes to everyone and headed out around 10:30 and this time Sophia did so great on the way back in the car!  Overall it was a great trip.  Congrats Breanne and Eric.

I didn’t take very many pictures at the wedding, but my brother’s girlfriend Audray did so hopefully I will get those soon and be able to add them to the post.
