On Saturday, we started our day bright and early in Katy for our first race of the year. I will be telling you all about the race in a full post but for now I will share with you a picture of one of my favorite moments.
Our next adventure was my friend's wedding. We got ready and then were pitched a curve ball. Our babysitter was unavailable. What to do? We ended up getting her ready and taking her with us. Our GPS got us lost and we ended up in the back of the venue on a gravel road. We were running late already. Things were getting a little frustrating there for a minute. I had to call the venue and get some assistance. We finally made it to the venue and come to realize, the wedding was running late. Phew. We found our seats in the back and waited for the ceremony to start. I blinked and it was over or at least that is how it felt. Turns out in Vietnamese culture there is an intimate traditional tea ceremony . It was explained to me that only close relatives and the bridal party partake in this. I was bummed but I understood. My husband wondered why their ceremony was so short compared to ours. It took a little explaining but he got it. We had a small break in between the ceremony and the reception. We went home and took a much needed nap. Remember when you were little and you got to take a nap. We need to add naps back to our day. Babysitter was still unavailable so we ended up taking our daughter to the wedding reception. I had already been told to bring her with me. I had misunderstood and thought it was a no kids wedding. All things worked out and she had a blast with the kids that were there. The reception was at Kim Som. We like Kim Som. I had been warned that there would be a lot of food served. Boy was there a lot of food. Check out the menu:
