Making the Most of Downtime
Kiersten and Jeff’s wedding didn’t start until 6pm, so we had all day to relax at the hotel. (Relax is actually a funny word to use here because when you have 2 toddlers, there is NO relaxing…but, you know what I mean.)
It just so happens that Matt, Zoe’s biological father, lives in the Birmingham area, so he ended up picking Zoe and Landon up in the morning. They went to breakfast and then he took them to his house to show them where he lived. They were gone until about 1pm, so it was nice that they had something to do other than sit around the hotel all day.
Dakota, Harper, Mema and Tony went to the pool. I sat outside taking pictures, but never actually got in, which was fine with me. :)
Mema played with the beach balls with the two littles. I think she really enjoyed bonking them on the head with the balls, but she’ll never admit it!
We weren’t out there very long, maybe only 45 minutes, but as soon as the babes were tired of it we headed in for lunch. As soon as Landon got back though, we headed back out for a little more pool time.
Around 3:30 we all headed back inside to get ready for the wedding. Since we’d all been outside and in the pool, everyone had to shower before getting dressed and that takes time when there’s eight people and two bathrooms!
