We had a really fun time at the wedding. The wedding was at Smokey Glen Farm in Maryland and involved delicious barbecue. It did rain that evening, but it's been so hot that it actually made the evening better. It was a Jewish ceremony complete with the things you would expect, like a chuppah and yarmulkes, to the things you wouldn't, like llamas named Alien, minigolf, and tether ball. We had a great time, as anyone would with the above combination of things.
The rest of the time at my parents' house, we spent taking bike rides and playing. My parents had collected some "toys" for Eleanor including an old egg carton filled with a few plastic Easter eggs and some old coffee tins that they let Eleanor drum on using wooden spoons. She loved it all. She also had to take a few sink cool-offs after coming in from outside because she would get so overheated in the ridiculously hot weather.
Monday of Labor Day weekend was Auntie Erika's birthday, so we had birthday lunch with Chris' family to celebrate! Since Eleanor had a birthday last month and knows what cake looks like, she can't stand to be around it without eating it. So singing to Auntie Erika and waiting for a piece of her birthday cake was torture for her. Uncle Jonathan took pictures of her across the table, and they were hilarious :)
