This past weekend, we had the pleasure to attend the wedding of our college friend Karl, to his lovely bride Chueng Wei. Guests from Denmark, China and the US came to Del Mar California to share in the moment on a beautiful cliff park overlooking the sea.
Amazingly, we hadn't been to a wedding in a very long time. The last one I can recall was our sister-in-law's wedding back when Chloe was just a baby and we didn't even have Pearl yet. I was seriously worried how the girls would do at this one, given they are used to being "entertained". And while there were some challenging moments ("Mommy, I can't see!" was uttered incessantly), we all left with a wonderful memory of the very special joining of two lives and two cultures.
Chloe and Pearl spent the majority of their time either chasing squirrels or catching ladybugs. The ladybugs were an easy conquest since they congregated in the wedding flowers attached to the rows of chairs. It was easy pickin's for the girls and there was joy and laughter all around.
The wedding was on a Sunday, so we decided to take Monday off work and take our time coming home. We stopped by Legoland for a few hours and BOY WAS IT HOT! We were almost eager to leave (after spending oodles of money on tickets). I think we only lasted about four rides and some free play time. When we got back to the car, we realized it was 95 degrees as we melted into our seats for the long air-conditioned ride home.
