Congratulations Aunt Maureen and Uncle Phil!

It's been a while since I've posted, but our May madness is officially over and we have been enjoying it. May was a really busy month for us, but the end was marked by the wedding of Paul's sister, Maureen and her new husband, Phil. The wedding was beautiful and we all had a great time. Congratulations Newlyweds!!

Aidan was the ring bearer for the 4th time in 4 years. He has yet to disappoint. He was only 1 year old for his first wedding. He was oblivious to what was really happening. However, the last three, we had to use bribery. Each "reward" was chosen by Aidan. (Ironically, I just saw a news story this afternoon shaming people who bribe their children. I'm hear to tell you it works beautifully on my son.) Anyway, for Paul's youngest sister Aidan was promised Harold the Helicopter (from Thomas the train) if he made it down the aisle. Currently, Harold is stuck in a box somewhere and makes it out to play occasionally. For Paul's brothers wedding, he was promised football cards. I can't even begin to guess where those are. For Maureen and Phils wedding, Aidan was promised Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shoes (influenced by one of the boys at daycare). Of course, as soon as he made it to the end of the aisle he had to put the shoes on and they were worn throughout the wedding and the remainder of the night. Those shoes (I've been told) make him run faster and jump higher than any of his other shoes. Hmmmm, I think I've heard that before. Anyway, to this day (mind you, it's only been a week) we can still locate these shoes and they are still being worn every day.

We are so pround of the little man he has become. We are so very proud of him and he was by far the cutest one in the wedding party....sorry, Phil!!
