Video & Recap of our weekend

Gabe and I were away on Saturday and Saturday night. We went to a beautiful wedding about an hour away and Maddie stayed with Sandy and Carlos. She did great-which is good, because we leave at 4:30am tomorrow morning for Vegas and they will be watching her again. We are headed there for a trade show and to have some fun. I'm writing this while trying to upload a new short video of Maddie from this morning. I spent a lot of time on Friday trying to upload a much longer video, but it took forever and then timed out! Frustrating. So, Siobhan, I'm trying :) Today, I have a lot to do. Laundry, take a walk (it FINALLY feels like Fall here :), play, clean, get the house ready for our house-sitters, pack, etc.
Back to the wedding. It was really amazing. Gabe's good friend since high school got married at her Dad's 300+ acre estate in Easton, MD. It was awesome. It was the first Jewish wedding I've ever attended, and I really enjoyed the ceremony. There was great food, a cocktail hour that included a sushi bar as well as passed hors d'oeuvres, then onto the reception. There were white flip flops available for every woman to wear instead of their heels (Thank God), a candy bar where you could choose any candy to take home with you, a live band that were sooooo good and lots of dancing. We had a blast.
Yeah, the video worked!! I have another one of her eating that I may try to put up too!

Thank you so much for the new far we've watched it five times. :) Glad to hear that your weekend went well.The wedding sounds amazingly like the Jewish one Greg and I went to in May. Our wedding was great fun...had a blast. The babysitting side of things wasn't a real success but we'll see how it goes. Next weekend she's spending with Greg's parents so she'll be forced to get more used to others.I believe it was bedtime that was the hardest. :( Have a great time in Vegas and we'll see you next week.xx

I'm glad the video has come in handy :) I'm sad that babysitting didn't go well. But, it was the first time and she'll get more used to it the more you do it! I'm glad you guys got away though and had fun. We'll will definitely see you guys next week. I'll give you a call Sunday night. Have a great week!!
Love, Sarah
