A Royal Wedding

(Photo of course not taken by me)

I really was not going to get caught up in all of the Royal Wedding stuff. But it's kind of hard not to :) I watched a special or two on t.v. and read a book about their courtship.
I didn't get up at 4am to watch live, but did record it on my DVR.
Although I was awake at 5:45 am this morning anyway, so decided to watch a bit live.

Evan's teacher had been talking about it at school. Being eight, almost nine, he doesn't really get it. But did want to watch a little with me this morning. I think to see what all the hype was about.
Some of my favorite lines from him this morning:

"Mom, they're wearing suits!"
"Mom, they have cars!"
He thought everything would be more "old time" as he put it. 
It was fun talking to him about it and hearing his perspective :)

As for me, seeing her walk in church, hearing the vows, seeing the carriage ride and this kiss is enough for me.  I hope they have a wonderful and happy marriage. :)


  1. I didn't see the wedding and didnt tape it I forgot!
    I did see a couple video clips on Yahoo when they were at the church and when they were driving away in the car!
    What an exciting time for England!

  2. I didn't watch, but I browsed the pics this morning. I do remember watching Charles and Di's wedding long ago...

  3. I have it DVRed but haven't watched it yet. I'm waiting on hubs to watch it together : ) LOL about "photo of course not taken by me"

  4. ok, i LOVE your little dude's take on it - that is hilarious!

  5. sophie loved looking at Kate but she said, "why are the guys always so freaky looking!?" a true 7 year old.
