We are back from a wonderful weekend in Des Moines. My lovely sister just married her best friend, and they asked us to be part of their special day. Johanne was, hands down, the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. She was absolutely radiant! Check out her photographer’s blog for more photos.
Hazel rocked it as the flower girl.
Ambrose was a handsome little man in his suit. (Although we took zero pictures to prove it).
Hazel loved her trip to Iowa. She has been talking about going back ever since we got home. “Go to Iowa again. Have M&Ms, and dance, and ride in elevator, and eat food. Not Minnesota, just Iowa.”
She loved staying at the hotel–it was our “Iowa house.” The elevator saw more than its fair share of Hazel, as she rode up and down several times a day. She loved the food at the hotel, the rehearsal dinner, and at the wedding. “Mmmmm. Iowa cake.” Our hotel had fountains all over the place and she wanted to swim in them. We were watching a commercial for a tropical resort with beaches and fountains, and Hazel exclaimed “IOWA!!!” Hazel may be the only person in the world that thinks Iowa is Shangri-La.
