Evening Jammies and Snuggles

I'm trying to be better about grabbing my camera and snapping pics of everyday scenes, not just waiting for the "dress up" occasions or always relying on often subpar hastily snapped phone pics.

Evening snuggles before bed are a sweet time in our house, often accompanied by some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so of course by the end, she's up "dancing". : )   Videos to come of that cuteness later. 

I want to remember all of this sweet baby/toddlerness. The messy hair, the chunks and rolls and the funny ways of learning to move.

Lawtie and the Ice Cream Cone

A tiny person with a big ice cream cone (and messy ice cream face) is just stinking cute.

Evening Boat Cruise

I just emptied off two sd cards full of cute pics of my little person (and handsome hubs) that have been accumulating for about a month so it's sharing time!

Father's Day 2015

And after all the other celebrations of the weekend, I can't forget the great dads in our lives.

My sweet in-laws picked up Lawter from the wedding reception so she could go home and get to bed while we enjoyed the rest of the festivities, so we all got up Sunday morning for breakfast at the coffee shop then I headed to meet my fam for wedding clean up/gift opening/Father's Day time. 

(We look fancy, don't we? It was about 1000 degrees out and we'd just finished unpacking all the reception things, including a whoooole lot of leftover wine. Yesssssss.)

Love you Dad, even when you're all gross and sweaty. And especially, because I was too.  : ) 

Sunday evening, I got home in time to hang out with Anthony and Lawter and open a good bottle of wine and grill up a steak (and it was seriously the BEST steak I've had in a long, long time) to celebrate my sweet, sweet husband who is an amazing dad to our baby girl and we are both so very lucky to have him in our lives.

Jess & Luke get married (Wedding}

So, my sister is a married lady now!

Again, I cannot WAIT to see the professional pics of this weekend! 
Seriously- everything was so gorgeous. My sister was absolutely stunning, and Jess and my mom and family and friends worked so hard to see every beautiful and creative detail through. 

Jess had a gorgeous "Father of the Bride" backyard ceremony at our parents' house, it was blue skies, a light breeze and gorgeous flower and river backdrop. 

The ceremony was kept fairly small and intimate, with most guests being invited to celebrate at the reception.

Lawtie girl did great and after hanging out with me for a few minutes at the beginning of the ceremony, she proceeded to crawl around picking flowers off of planters during the ceremony and exclaiming "Uh-oh!" each time for the duration.

A short and sweet ceremony (performed by one of my and Anthony's reverends from the church we attend!), then pictures and off to the reception at Bethpage, where dinner, delicious cake, a fun band, and dancing awaited.

It was all so wonderful and perfect and we couldn't be happier for Jess & Luke!

I'll be overloading the blog with wedding pics in the coming weeks so for now, here are a few phone pics and stolen shots (thanks to my cousin Jenny!), as well as some insta steals and such to commemorate the celebration of the new Mr. and Mrs. Reilly! 

Sissy and her flower girl

My favorite girls, moments before showtime!

(a few detail pics I snapped at the reception site the day before)

My mom hand painted fabulous wine and beer glasses for every dinner seat at the reception and guests took them home as favors. That lady is TALENTED I tell you.
