Great weekend in Wisconsin!

Our journey for Wisconsin began Thursday morning when our flight was supposed to take off at 11am, well of course we always know how that goes when Sean and I fly. There was a delay. 4 hour one to be exact. Ugh! Luckily it wasn't as bad as our delays before but still being in an airport any longer then you really have to be with a toddler is never fun. Sean brought his laptop so Payten could watch her shows and that kept her entertained for quite some time. Thank goodness.

We finally arrived around 4:30p or so, and then we headed to Grandma & Grandpa Hogan's house. We made it in the door just in time to eat dinner and then off to the mall with the boys I went to help them get everything squared away with the tuxedos.

Friday started all the wedding festivities. Mom Hogan, Gaby, and I all went for a manicure and pedicure at the salon the GLOW. It was so nice to just relax especially since sitting in an airport all day the day before. We headed over to the hotel, grabbed some lunch, squeezed in a quick nap, and off to the wedding rehearsal we went. Payten and Brianna did great running down the aisle. :-) The reheresal dinner was at the Water Buffalo. Yummy food and great view of downtown Milwaukee. We all had a blast!

Saturday was the big day. Everything went great! And even went smooth. Big relief for Gaby I am sure. That is always a plus for the bride. She looked absolutely stunning, and my brother in law didn't look too shabby himself :-) We had such a great time with everyone. The Hogan/Conway crew is always lots of fun!

Sunday we celebrated Bri's 2nd birthday at the Marriott. Her Daddy threw her a fun themed Nemo party. We didn't get to stay as long as we would have liked due to our flight. But Payten had a blast with her cousins and enjoyed chasing all the balloons around.

We wish we could have had a longer visit but of course work calls.... Ugh! We are hoping to make a trip up in December. Payten can even possibly see and play in the snow :-)

I have a ton of pictures so look for a few more posts. Way too many to put in this one. Hope everyone had a great weekend as well!
