Tyler's been quite the traveler in his 8 short months of life! He's been to Arkansas to see his great grandparents, he went to Oklahoma City to see my best friend Katie get married and then he got to go to Florida last weekend for our friends Katie and Sean's wedding, which B and I both got to be a part of!  Early Thursday morning (like 3am early) B, Maggie, Mom and I headed east to Pensacola...Gulf Breeze to be exact.  We managed to get there in about 12 hours which was awesome considering some less than timely stops and a poop exlosion from the kiddo. But leaving early was great because he slept for a good chunk of the trip and overall was an angel until about an hour before we got there. Unfortunately it was during this hour that B missed a highway exit and got all pissy...and well i was less than happy after that overload of male fury.  We checked into Margaritaville which is on the beach, absolutely gorgeous and I HIGHLY recommend it. They had a beautiful pool, great beach location, and most importantly, everyone there was SOOOOO nice. So if you go to Pensacola, definitely check it out. We had to get ready for the rehearsal dinner immediately so we changed and left Tyler with grammy and aunt maggie.  We had a fun night and Tyler was more than happy to see us when we got back. 
Friday was the we got up and went to the beach for a while. Tyler wasn't a huge fan of the water but apparently he liked the sound. Then we went to the pool for a little while before we had to go get ready. Around one I went to get ready with the girls and B was supposed to meet up with the guys at 2:30.  My mom got volunteered by me to help send people down the aisle, so she and maggie showed up around 5.  Just enough time for me to feed tyler and get ready to go.  At 5:30 the wedding started. It was gorgeous, Katie was just beautiful and it was just amazing.  The highlight of the evening was when there was a miscommunication and no one brought down Sean's ring, so they were actually married with B's ring! LOL  Quick thinking from that guy.  After the wedding we took lots of pics with the wonderful Ben and Stefanie and then we partied! It was a really fantastic evening. 

Saturday we were heading out and decided to hit the beach one last time.  Maggie, Mom and I went to the ocean but we only had an hour.  We got a quick dip and headed back in...we loved it so much I think Mom planned our family vacation there for next year the whole way home.  Gorgeous.  Tyler was awesome pretty much the whole way home as well. There were a few more poop explosions and a near death by lightening strike experience but overall it was pretty pleasant. It took much longer to get home and by the time we got there we were wiped out! It was short but wonderful and we can't wait to go back!!
