What we did 4th of July weekend

Ok, we didn't cry the whole weekend. Friday during the day I worked on flowers for our friends' wedding. Friday night we went to their rehearsal dinner and got to enjoy some good food and fireworks. Saturday was wedding, wedding, wedding!

The wedding itself was just lovely. Ryan and Amie were so happy to get married, and everything was so sweet!!!

Maggie on the otherhand, not so much. Right as the ceremony started she told me she had to go potty. The wedding and reception were in a garden in a park, and there were no bathrooms (the port-a-potty was absolutely not an option). So I told her she had to wait until after. During the wedding I couldn't get her to sit still. After the wedding we all took our chairs over to the reception tables. Right as we got their Maggie started screaming bloody murder as she stood in her chair! I had forgotten she had to go and she had an accident right there in the chair. Somehow she missed her dress and only got her panties, shoes and chair. That was all easily remedied, we cleaned up her shoes and popped her in a diaper for the rest of the afternoon.

As the bride and groom were leaving, Maggie spilled a bottle of water all down her dress, and refused to wear it any longer. There was a lot of crying and sobbing and general fit-pitching about the wet dress on her part. So I let her run around in a diaper and her shoes! THEN we all got bubbles. Maggie got knocked down and spilled her bubbles, and she went off again. It was a mess. She was covered in sticky bubble soap, and crying for more bubbles, and all, which is the picture from above. My friend, Andrea, took this picture. She works with Mint & Sage Photography (best phtography in Nashville, by the way). Someone very nicely gave Maggie a second bottle of bubbles, which she promptly POURED OUT ON PURPOSE and then pitched another huge fit! We headed home after that.

Oh my goodness! That is so funny. I didn't know all that happened after the peeing incident. I just noticed Maggie running around in a diaper when we were getting ready to go. The picture is great!

I'm just laughing so hard! Does Maggie know about Alexander (who had a terrible, horrible, very bad day?) Sounds like they are related.
SO FUN to see you Sunday!
