Our neighbor's son was getting married. He was marrying a lady from another country. So, we had never met the bride. They asked Naiyah to be the flower girl. And since we had a dress from my brother's wedding this past year, we said yes to be in the wedding.
It was enlightening. The invitation said the wedding would start at 2. It almost began at 4:00 :). The reception was sat for 30 people, over 60 were there. I was sweating (literally- it was very humid, of course) trying to figure out how to entertain 3 young ones while standing in a small reception room waiting several hours for food to be served. Thankfully they were serving bottled sodas, which is a huge treat for my kiddos. When they were served, they asked…"Wow, are these free?"
Thankfully, those sodas occupied them for awhile!
