Weekend getaway

This weekend my second cousin, Alyssa was married in Omaha.  We were going to make a weekend out of it and go up early Friday and take in their incredible zoo.  However, Dariya woke up with her hair all crusty and her ear looking like this...

Thankfully since last November when she received tubes she hasn't had any problems, but wow this is one bad infection.  So we opted to drive up for the wedding and turn around and come home the same day.

It was great to see family that we hadn't seen in a while and for them to meet Dariya, although they didn't really get a great idea of her sweet personality because she was tired, clingy and cranky.

But, I have to give all three of our kids kudos as they were all great travelers.  Alayna napped both on the way up and back. Dariya never napped (even with melatonin) but she did sit quietly and look out the window. And Aidan is just plain easy.

All three did fantastic during the ceremony which lasted about 70 minutes.
 The unity candle is one of my favorite parts of weddings.  Thankful that I snapped this one before Alayna crawled over me again and blurred the scene.
 Caught this handsome guy hanging out listening to some tunes in the lobby after the nuptials.

 Before we headed back home we met up in my parents hotel room to say goodbye and snap a few more pictures. 

A fun trip but, next time we visit Omaha we will take in the zoo and leave out the ear infections!

Glad to hear the kids traveled so well. Hope Dariya is on the mend very soon!

Wow, I've never seen an ear infection that created a rash like that. It looks miserable! How long did it take to get better? Poor baby.
