A cousin of mine tied the knot today and we attended the church wedding in the early morning and the wedding dinner at night with the kids. This is the first full day event with all four of them! It was a great challenge keeping all of them quiet during the 1.5 hour-long solemn ceremony. We had to endure the not-so-sympathetic stares of the other attendees while we struggled with the younger two. And nope, there was no cry room and there was no air-con too in the sweltering heat. A double whammy indeed.
Dinner was a lot easier with the cool weather and refreshing temperature in the hotel ballroom. Still, it was a weight-lifting exercise for both of us the second half of the program, carrying two tired and cranky little ones. Somehow, by the grace of God, we survived. The bath-time routine once we reached home was a nightmare with all 4 feeling the strain of the whole day and wanting us to do everything for them. We braved through the storm and it is finally peace on earth now with every kid in bed after so much crying and whining just half an hour ago.
We have half a year to recover before embarking on another such journey when the next cousin gets married. *sweat*
