The only sad part of the entire weekend was that the rest of the Wade family (Eric, Reagan and Blaire) had to stay at home. The twins have not been given the green light to travel yet so they were home bound and missed the big celebration (but can't wait to watch the video!). But, it was a Father Knows Best kind of weekend and Eric was a pro. From feedings, to diaper changes to bath times and play times - they loved their one on one time with Daddy almost as much as Abby loved her one on on time with Mommy. It was hard to be 1,605 miles away - trust me - but it was a great weekend that was enjoyed by every member of the Wade family!

While we were getting ready to head out to Colorado for the weekend's celebration, it got me (Barbara) thinking about marriage. And if you know anything about me, you probably know I'm a sucker for a quote...the good, the bad and the ugly. I've filled two journals full of quotes since I started collecting in high school and I just keep seeing some that I find myself just having to jot down. So with that being said, in honor of Robyn and John's wedding, here are a few of my favorite quotes about marriage...enjoy!
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
One should never know too precisely whom one has married. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single. ~Author Unknown
Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity. ~Author Unknown
My wife says I never listen to her. At least I think that's what she said. ~Author Unknown
Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without. ~James C. Dobson
Pity all newlyweds. She cooks something nice for him, and he brings her flowers, and they kiss and think: How easy marriage is. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
A perfect marriage is one in which "I'm sorry" is said just often enough. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. First, let her think she's having her own way. And second, let her have it. ~Lyndon B. Johnson
The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret. ~Henny Youngman
Marriage is a mistake every man should make. ~George Jessel
My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God, and I didn't. ~Author Unknown
Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers birthdays and the other never forgets them. ~
We were happily married for eight months. Unfortunately, we were married for four and a half years. ~Nick Faldo
Men never know how tired they are till their wives sit them down for a nice long talk. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence? ~Author Unknown
The best way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once. ~H.V. Prochnow
Love is grand; divorce a hundred grand. ~Author Unknown

Editor's note: Both girls were sound asleep when I walked over to take these pictures to add to the blog. Sure enough, as soon as I took the picture of Reagan (on the right), Blaire heard the camera and woke up. Thankfully she woke up all smiles! I debated the title "Sleeping Beauties" or "Pumpkin Pies"!

All kidding aside, it's still warm outside here in south Alabama. Granted, it isn't as warm as it was in mid-July, but it was still the perfect weather to enjoy a nice swim before lunch and nap time. And the weather continued to cooperate for the rest of the day...for a big event in the Wade family. We took our first family portraits together - as a family of five that is! Through one of our best friends, Ms. Veda, we found a great photographer to come to our house. The combo team of husband and wife from Mattox Photography came out to our house and spent about 2 hours with us taking tons of pictures...inside, outside, family, kiddos, babies, individuals, etc. You name it, they shot it! All in all it was a picture perfect kind of day to end the summer and welcome fall into our year!
