uncle kyle got married

the first week of june had us hoppin' on a plane... and a shuttle bus, and a rental car, 
and arriving in Minnesota for uncle kyle's wedding.

in typical lindsey fashion, i was trying to pack the night before and it was a mad house up in here.
this whole pack for a family vaca thing is crazy.
if i was rich i'd say i'll just buy anything we need once we get there. 
but i'm not.
and when you have little kids, there's all these things you have to pack for "just in case".
but we did it!  all packed up and headed to the airport!
 we arrived at the airport in the nick of time.
other than archer's huge blow out on the shuttle bus from car to air port, which required a dipe change right in the middle of the airport (hello, i'mthatmom) we were there and checked in, smooth sailing.
i mean, other than the fact that we used his extra set of clothes before the trip even began. 
(pun intended)
 {baby sitting awkwardly in the ergo.  he was screaming unless i held him like that.  oh joy.}

romes was in heaven.
literally labeling everything in sight.
dude has a page in one of his books that labels everything you might see at an airport.
and that page (along with all the others... no joke... we're talking like forest pages with log feller bunchers) is memorized.  so i got to here all about luggage carts and conveyer belts.  yay.

 {romes wanted more chips.  we fed him all sorts of junk food this day.  
i mean, you do what you gotta do}

 {oh hi! we're all on a plane!  here we go!!!!! help help help help}
no actually, they flew great!

and then we got to minneapolis.
and we drove around the city for 45 min trying to find a noodles and company because daddy told roman he could have mac and cheese and the first noodles and company we found was in the mall of america and we weren't gonna do that.
so we drove around. forever.
and then archer was screaming.
and then i was so stressed i couldn't feed the baby.
and then i freaked out because oh no, i couldn't feed the baby.
and then we found a noodles and company.
and all was good.
it's amazing what a little mac n cheese can do for a boy.
(and a momma!)

other than that little hiccup, we made it smooth sailing.
and look at this place!

i learned quickly that arch was not havin the ergo.
so i busted out the solly baby wrap.
and suddenly my little 2 month old looked HUGE in that wrap.
oh, but it worked wonders.
nothin like being hands free.
and having a large growth on your belly.
but what a cute little growth he was :)

romes ran wild and free the whole time we were there.

actually, i'm not kidding.
this blur below is basically us, chasing our kid, so he wouldn't fall into the lake.
but he loved it.
and a happy boy makes for some happy parents.
oh, and he kept piling up the fire wood.
always working, that romes.
 he loved being at 
"the camp" and "the lake"

and every morning he would wake up and ask if we could go to the camp and the lake again.
he loved every single moment of being there.
not to mention he was with his uncles and gma and gpa!!

and then the day arrived.
and archer was a show stoppa.

and hey hey hey, who's this little stud?
romes with da bow tie. 
eeeeek i die.

 momma and baby archer

 uncle cam, daddy, uncle kyle, uncle colton

 our new aunt bayley, the beautiful bride!!!!

really, she was STUNNING.
the whole wedding week was perfect!

and even though archer screamed the entire 2.5 ride back to the airport, the whole way through the airport, and onto the plane... we eventually settled in on our flight home :)

romes passed out. 

arch man was happy.

and momma was swamped with laundry.

like dude, i had to pre spot his whole shirt.
