The Learning Family Summer Update!

Wow! It sure has been an exciting Summer around the Learn Mommy Learn house. As the heat started to rise in early June, the Learning Daddy and I finally tied the knot. That's right, after seven and a half years we finally married. Of course, we wanted Bug to play a large role in the festivities. We asked him to be our Ring Bearer, but he refused stating, "I already know how to be a ring bearer, so I don't have to practice anymore." Apparently, being part of my cousin's wedding last year was enough. We finally compromised on Bug being the "Ring Pilot." Instead of carrying a pillow down the aisle our little guy "flew" a hand painted, wooden airplane model for our guests to enjoy. He also insisted on carrying the real rings, so I placed them in a cute pouch and put them in his pocket right before the ceremony started. I just loved how proud he felt of himself for being well behaved and completing such an important role. We had a fabulous day and are enjoying married life.

Then, three weeks after our "I dos" another of my cousins was married to the love of his life. The Learning Daddy, Bug, and myself traveled to Kentucky for their nuptials and other family events. The wedding was held in the quaintest little church in a small town. The bride was as radiant on the outside as she is on the inside, and I am so delighted she is officially part of our extended family now. The reception was enjoyed by all and Bug had a particularly  wonderful time on the dance floor. The food was simple yet wonderfully tasty. I must have eaten three full plates by the time we called it a night.

While in Kentucky for the wedding my parents took us on a quick train ride through the country side. Bug had never been on a real train before so this was a special treat. We drove to a nearby town (there may or may not have been a stop light there) where we bored the train and rode(very, very slowly) for about twenty minutes.
