Gonna get married ...

Jake got to be ringbearer at his cousin Bobby's wedding. We wondered how he would do, and he did really well. He got a little fidgety during the ceremony, but he's only 3 1/2 after all. Nothing his other cousin Matt, the best man, couldn't handle.

Here's the ringbearer stylin' before the ceremony. How cute is this?



Before we were so presentable, though, we had to get dressed.



Posing with a cool drink.



Posing with the groom's men beforehand.



The happy couple, Bobby and Klarissa. Congratulations you two!



Taking pics at the reception. Jake loves to take pictures. He filled up at least four of the disposable cameras set out on the tables to get photos at the reception. No word yet on if they turned out.



The night before, before the rehearsal and dinner, Jake tried his hand at ping pong and foosball for the first time. He may be a better foosball player, though.





The day after the wedding, before we came home, we went to a drive-through wildlife preserve. More on that later.

Seriously, the boy could be a model in those pictures--posing for the camera, how cute! He looked so handsome.

That is just about the cutest ringbearer suit I have ever seen. Where on earth did you find those shoes?!? I LOVE them!!

Thanks Jolene. He is quite the ham. He would not sing "Twinkle, Twinkle" for his aunt until I acted like I had the camcorder on, and he sang like a professional! The shoes, Jen, were through Men's Warehouse and are about the only thing they got right. They actually decided for some reason to ship the groom's suit from Joplin, Mo., where it was supposed to be, to Florida at the last minute. Luckily they got that fixed, but there were several problems.

Tooo cute! He's seriously stylin'!!!

Our oldest was in a wedding at that same age, and I will never get over how adorable he looked in that little tux. I remember being sooooo emotional about the whole event!
