It Takes a Village....

This weekend was insane...but so fun.  

On Friday night, we went to Noel's best friend, Zach's rehearsal dinner.  

I then drove straight to Greenville (2 hour drive) to spend the night with my brother and sister. 

 On Saturday morning, I went to my brother's graduation, and drove straight back home to give my boys a kiss and head off to the wedding.

While driving, I couldn't stop thinking about how it really does take a village to raise children.  My mother in law and father in law kept the boys for the wedding festivities, and my new found friend, Lindsey kept the boys while I was at the graduation and Noel was doing groomsmen stuff.  (Lindsey is the wife of another groomsmen and so graciously offered at the rehearsal dinner to keep the boys the following morning.  How awesome is she??)  I'm so glad the boys have so many people who love them and want what's best for them...so grateful for my village.

Kara and Zach's wedding was insanely beautiful.  {Pinterest, eat your heart out!}  This couple really is a match made in heaven.  They had the cutest favor bags full of a s'mores kit.  After dinner, they set up a s'more station to make your treats!  Another cute idea was the seating chart arrangement.  They had a framed chicken wire piece with your name and table number clothes pinned to the wire.  


My brother the graduate!!  We caught him on the big screen!  I love the picture on the right....he's looking at the paper, thinking "THIS is what I get for graduating?  Thanks."


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
