The next day, I had to meet the girls to get our hair, makeup, and nails done. Kyle went to lunch with the boys around 1pm and we were all going to meet at the Battle-Friedman House to get ready for pictures around 2:30pm. We left Brody with my mom and dad since we wouldn't have time to go back and pick him up. This gave him time to take a good nap, too. My parents dropped him off for pictures around 3:30pm. It was even hotter than the day before! We all got ready for pictures and Kirk and Kacy went down to take their pictures first. Then it was time for everybody to head down for group pictures. This is where Brody decided he was done for the day! I'm interested to see if the photographers got any pictures of Brody where he wasn't fussing or crying!
By the time pictures were over, guests were starting to arrive. When we rehearsed walking down the aisle, Kyle and I were to walk down and then the 2 ring bearers were to follow. Well, this wasn't happening! Brody wouldn't let Kyle put him down so Kyle had me by one arm and Brody in the other. I hope Kacy didn't mind! I don't even know if she knows this is what happened! Haha. The other ring bearer walked down just fine (he had just come back from a wedding the day before were he was a ring bearer). At the end of the aisle, Kyle put Brody down and he sat with my mom and dad the rest of the time. He randomly clapped and said "Yay!' at one point. I thought it was pretty funny. Kyle said he didn't even notice! Once the wedding was over, Kirk and Kacy had a buffet of wonderful food, cake, and wedding favors of apple butter and Kacy's dad's homemade bread recipe. The line for the food was super long so my mom and dad decided to just head home. Kyle and I waited until the line had gone down and there was still tons of great food left over! We needed to get Brody home because we had an hour drive and Kyle had to preach the next day, so we didn't stay much later after that. We missed Kirk and Kacy leaving in their fancy car. :( We got back to my parent's house and everybody took a quick bath/shower since we were so sweaty and would get back home late. Eddy and Jeanny soon followed and stayed with us in Jasper for a few days and were able to celebrate Memorial Day with us.
We remembered to take our camera, but always forgot to bring it with us when we'd leave my parents' house! So we didn't get any pictures from those 2 days. These few pictures from the rehearsal dinner were taken by Jeanny.
