Part 2... or 3? I don't know. Sum Mo.

So from Utah, Mila and I flew to San Diego on Friday morning to meet up with Lacy (child-free Lacy!) and then were met by Ross and Sophia late Saturday night. This gave me time with my mom and Lacy Friday night (we missed you Mel) while Kirk watched Mila slumber. And then another fun wedding-filled Saturday. This one was for one of Lacy's best childhood friends, Monica and her new husband Andy. Such a beautiful couple. Beautiful Catholic wedding in an old Catholic church in Old Town.

I could only imagine how gorgeous the bride would look when I saw the dresses the bridesmaids got to wear. The proud father of the bride. They just always seem especially adorable on wedding days. I wish I had a photo of Sarah's... he was SO that.
Yes I wore the same dress... that's a little embarrassing. But not really.... it would be more so if I bought two I guess.
There are few things cuter than a flower girl. I'm dying since I had SO many cute photos of my girls, Adelaide, and Avery with Sarah in their little dresses... and LOST them with the others. Lacy and some High school friends.

Monica + Andy.

Back at the ranch...

This one's Dane, Ian and Teresita's new one. We went to visit them and Lacy got to see their house for the first time, and I can't resist a gummy baby smile.

I don't have the energy for the gush she deserves. But I'm just not the same for days after being with Lacy. It's just such a shame to live SO far apart. She is a ball of happiness to me, makes me feel like a million bucks.

Must admit, Monday and Tuesday were full of the major mom-at-home, in-hot-miserable-weather, with-teething baby, without-mom-and-sisters BLUES. Yesterday and today have had clouds. This morning it rained. So things. Are looking. Up. :)

Glad you're back to blogging! Love ALL of the photos. You are so profesh, girlfriend. Sister time. There is nothing like it on this earth. It's magical.

What's wrong with your face in that last picture?

Lillie said...

Alright Joe, so I know you like to make my friends think you're mean and controversial when you're soft and sweet, but what's wrong with my face? That's just mean. I'm not getting the joke. Closed eyes??

Lillie said...

And Joe, yeah... poop problem in Tortilla Flat. Thanks for the reminder! I'd completely repressed that one. It seems the sewage problem is a curse of MINE.

Lowdogg said...

Yes. That's all. Closed eyes probably due to the sun. I thought it was funny, but maybe not. Sorry.

Lacy said...

Uh... tough one to follow... Thanks for all the nice things you said about me even though I'm married to an incessant, well-meaning teaser!

seriously, how do you hold up after all these activities? All I'm required to do is keep my kids alive and brush my teeth...you have wedding after gorgeous wedding to attend, beautiful, in different time zones! CRAZY! You are amazing, my friend. no matter what lowdogg leads you to believe. :) And Lacy, back and forth between east and west coast and you STILL get me an email as quickly as can be so I won't be worried? these sisters are incredible!
lillie, I know you're happiest with lacy around...glad you got some happiness. hang in there with the blues...if you want to talk and talk until you're sick of talking, give me a call. :)

When I first saw this post, before the comment from your bro-in-law, I thought to myself, "How can I make myself smile into the sun with closed eyes and still look that great. Maybe I need the earrings."

So fun Lillie. Glad you got some time with Lacy and wish for your sake that she could move to CA!

I'm sad for you that your sister is so far away. I think sometimes I take for granted that both of mine are within 10 minutes of me.

You all look great in the photos. such a cute happy fam.

Every time I see a picture of you hugging Lacy, it makes me crave a big sister all over again. I love you two, and think you're the perfect ying and yang. I'm sad you're apart, but so happy that she brings you to the East coast:) Oh, and in my new ward today, I was welcomed by a girl who grew up in Ross's stake and served with Lacy! Camae (or Kamae, pronounced Kuh-May). It was fun to think that our world's had linked just a little bit more.

I love your pretty champagney gold dress. I love that chic haircut. I love that I got to see you so 'recently' and am dying to see you again soon. Loves.

Monica said...
