Wedding bells are ringing....again!

I officially went to my 3rd wedding. I am a wedding star! I have been to Emma and David's wedding, Gordon and Jeannie's wedding and now...Uncle Ralph and Aunt Carey's wedding! This was a great wedding, because it was held in Seabrood Island, SC, which is an absolutely beautiful place. It is right outside of Charleston too, and we LOVE Charleston. It is probably our favorite city outside of San Francisco.

It was so good to see all the family and friends at the wedding. We stayed in a great house right on the beach with some friends and aunts, uncles, grandmas and great grandmas. Ava loved to see everyone....especially Adam and Granny Warner! We had a fun time on the beach. It was the first time Ava really played on the beach in the sand.

We had a great weekend overall. We had a cocktail and food night at Ralph's house on Thursday night. Then on Friday, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Aunt Janet, Bob and Rosie all went to Charleston to go on a horse carraige ride around the historical city. I loved it!

I wore one of my fancy dresses to the rehearsal dinner!

Saturday was the big wedding. We started out with a big bridal brunch at Carey and Ralph's house.

It was a beautiful day and night and the food and dancing was great! I was tired, but I had fun, while I lasted. Mom and Dad had fun dancing. We were so happy to see Ralph and Carey finally tie the knot! Now we have a nice big family....we are just waiting for Adam to get married....and he caught the garter belt, so it is his turn next!

Mommy was a bridesmaid in the wedding, so it was fun to see her in a long dress.

Sunday, Mom, Dad and I went back to Charleston and walked around a lot. I love it there. It is such a historical city and the houses are beautiful. Mom and Dad could live there I think...even though I love San Francisco and I don't want to leave my friends!

On the way home, we had some issues. Our flight got delayed so much that we would have missed our connection to San Francisco in Cincinnati, so we had to stay in Charleston another night in a ghetto hotel near the airport. It wasn't too bad though, until I had to wake up at 2am PT, and then I was cranky all day on the flights! But, we finally got home and I have to say, I am happy to be staying put for a few months.

On the day we got home, I started solid food for the first time.....I loved it! I was total natural at eating. I am pretty messy, but I do that on purpose, because it is more fun.

Here are more pictures of the wedding and my first food!

No, I didn't go to a beer festival....but I have hit up a fair share of other festivals in October so far! This past weekend, we all went to Half Moon Bay to have breakfast with Erin, John and Luke (who just sold their house - whhooooohoooo!). We also attended the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. Some people may say we were crazy for trying to drive down there, because it is notorious for traffic, but we hit NO traffic on the 1 - because we left really early! The Hitches hit some traffic on 92, but not too bad, so we were able to enjoy a lot of time together. After the festival, we went to a local pumpkin patch, so Luke and I could pick out some pumpkins. It was my first time at a pumpkin patch - I had a great time! Above I am with Luke in the wagon - we got pulled around the patch! Luke is so good at holding me.

My Daddy tried to bring the Kentucky out of me, and put me on a John Deere tractor! I kinda liked it!

On Saturday of this past weekend, I went with Mommy and Daddy to Hands on Bay Area and helped to paint benches at an elementary school in the Sunset. Mommy's work, Text 100 organized it, so I got to meet some of her workmates. It was good fun - and we were helping little kids have a better school, so it made me feel good. I had a name tag of my own - see it on my head!

The first weekend in October, we went to two different festivals. On Saturday we went to Fleet Week to see the Blue Angels fly. They are super loud, but they don't bother me! I even fell asleep while they were still performing. Here I am at the festival with my Mommy and Liz and her new boyfriend, Ed.

The other festival we went to was the Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park. I actually went on Friday and Sunday. I don't know what it is, but I think my Daddy is trying to teach me about his roots! I liked the bluegrass music - and there were lots of people to watch! Again, I managed to take a little snooze, even with all the loud music!

One of the biggest events of the month was my first day at daycare! I started on October 1, and my Mommy went back to work for the first day. She was very sad to leave me, but she knows I have a fun time at daycare. I love playing with the other kids and Lisa takes good care of me. I am always very happy to see my Mommy at the end of the day though! Here we are at Lisa's on our first day!

This week is another big week too. I am going on a plane again - this time to Charleston! This will be my 6th plane trip already! I am racking up the frequent flier miles. We are going to Uncle Ralph and (soon to be!) Aunt Carey's wedding! Mommy is in the wedding. We are staying in a nice house on the beach, and it is supposed to be nice weather - so I am looking forward to it. Tune in soon for pictures from that trip!
Here are the latest pictures from my life!
