To my surprise, the entire weekend was better than I dared to imagine. We packed in the car early Friday morning and had a very uneventful trip down to Mobile. It was about six hours and we only stopped for breakfast and gas, and Addison & Mackenzie even took a pretty good nap. A success!
After a quick rest, sandwich, and change of clothes, we turned around and headed thirty minutes north to the rehearsal. A & M complied well, but quickly grew tired of all the standing around and waiting the rehearsal itself involved. I assured them that the next day would be better--they would only have to run through the process once and it would be finished! At some point, the girls started holding hands as they walked down the aisle, which of course, was completely adorable. I asked if someone told them to do that or they did it on their own and they told me they just wanted to hold hands. Melt my heart!
We were able to spend some time exploring downtown Mobile on Saturday morning, along with Auntie LJ, who came over from Baton Rouge for the wedding. (We crammed six of us in one hotel room--me, Jeremy, Addison, Mackenzie, Laura Jo, and my mom--and it worked beautifully. It was actually pretty fun!)
I'll just let the pictures speak for the rest of the day. I pretty much put my camera up once the wedding started and didn't even take a single picture at the reception, but everything was absolutely beautiful and we all had a blast.
Again, the trip was fantastic, with only one stop this time and some pretty great naps for the girls. Jeremy drove the entire way (thanks again, honey!!) and I was able to get cozy in the small third row and read most of Looking for Alaska. It was probably our smoothest car trip yet. Wedding weekend success!
