April 16

Audrey went to her first wedding today! I was very nervous about taking her to the ceremony, as she is not exactly quiet! We looked into getting a babysitter, but couldn't find anyone, so we decided to just bring her with us. Her name was on the invitation, so we assumed that meant they wanted her to come too.

The wedding ceremony was supposed to be outside, but it was really cold and windy and yucky today, so it was moved inside. They had the ceremony in the same room as the reception, so everyone sat at their assigned tables for the ceremony. This meant the space was pretty cramped and that we didn't get to choose where we sat. And it meant that we were sitting in the very, very front. Literally less than 5 feet from the bride and groom.

Audrey was pretty grumpy all morning, and I was worried that she was going to start crying or throwing a fit during the ceremony. Or worse yet, she would loudly announce to the whole room "Pee coming out now!" as she has been known to do in the past. There was no way for us to get up and leave without walking directly in front of the wedding ceremony.

Fortunately it was a short ceremony. And fortunately our friend Joyce sat next to us with her iphone, which kept Audrey entertained! She did talk out loud a few times, but I don't think it really bothered anyone too much (except me!). And she kept whispering "gotta be quiet now", which was really cute.After the ceremony, Audrey had another first...her first taste of cotton candy! They had popcorn and cotton candy for everyone in between the ceremony and the reception. Audrey wasn't sure she wanted to try the cotton candy at first, but after she tried it, she kept wanting "more, more, more!"
Our table was right next to the dance floor, so Audrey got to get up and do a little dancing once the reception started. She even met a new friend named Lily who danced with her and showed her some new moves. (I didn't get a picture of the two of them together though).
And finally, it was time for cake! Audrey had been patiently waiting for cake all day long. She is making a funny face here, because she got too much cake on her fork.
She really just wanted the icing, and she would very carefully study it and eat just the icing off her cake with her fork.
