Super-fun Sunday

Matt and I went to a wedding on Saturday. His friends from back home were married at this great church back on Indian Lake and then the reception was in Marysville.

(Congrats Ryan and Kristina. Everything about your day was beautiful. Thanks for inviting us!!)

Ben and Ella stayed with Matt's parents on Saturday night. It was nice to sleep in on Sunday and just enjoy each other. We woke up Sunday morning, ran some errands, picked up Starbucks, and then headed to Oakland Nursery. We bought lots of flowers to fill the pots we got for our front porch (I'll post those pictures later this week)

On Sunday afternoon we got together with other friends of ours that were in town for the wedding -- Matt and Michelle and their kids, Connor, Megan and Cole; and TC and Chrissa and their daughter Taylor. We all met up at Michelle's parents house on Indian Lake.

We had a cookout... (here is Ben with Megan and Connor)

... and did a little fishing (it was super windy out so we were not outside for long)

I tried to fix up Ella with Matt and Michelle's son, Cole. Ella is just 2 days older than Cole, but he weighs about 3 lbs more than she does. Isn't he adorable??

Ella really liked his bald head!

Ben had a blast playing with Connor, Megan and Taylor. They would climb in bed and giggle...

....then pretend like they were sleeping....

.... and then back to more giggling

Taylor was extremely helpful in taking care of Ella

Ben was happy to find another boy who likes playing with anything pink as much as he does!!

Ben acted like he and Connor had been friends FOREVER. You would have never know that they had just met that day.

I just had to include these last 2 pictures of Ella because she is so stinking cute!
