There was a point, on Wednesday, that I broke into tears and we seriously considered going home. Thankfully (?) we didn't because the next day Livy got sick and she slept the rest of the trip. And because she was asleep, Charlie slept a lot longer as well. And it's also a lot easier to keep an eye on one toddler than it is to keep an eye one two. Therefore, Eli and I actually got a couple days rest and relaxation.
One very exciting thing did happen at the lake though. Liv went #2 on the potty. She did not think it was nearly as exciting as we did. :)
We left the lake on Saturday and drove to Lorraine, Ohio where our good friends Ryan and Karly were married. Mom drove up and met us at the hotel. She stayed with the kids while Eli and I attended the wedding. Yes, you read that right. Do I have a great mom or what?! She was a life saver. I can't imagine if we had tried to take the kids to the wedding. It would not have been a pretty sight. The wedding was beautiful and we had a great time with friends. Congratulations Ryan and Karly!
Sadly, between the craziness of Torch Lake and my camera dying at the wedding, pictures are limited this year. But here are a few to give an idea of our time.
The Gaskill Wedding
Congratulations Ryan and Karly!
As a side note: the video below this post was done with One True Media. I will never use them again. After hours of work, I went to post it and they told me I had to pay for the captions and cropping. I don't think so. Used to be free. So it's not as great of a montage as I'd hoped.
But notice the last song. It's a bit of a theme song for the week. :)
