The night has come to an end :(

Sunday evening, we went to a small wedding reception at Al Amir, a Mediterranean restaurant in Addison. Knowing it was a Mediterranean restaurant, I knew I and the boys would enjoy dinner very much. Seeing as Wally grew up on this food, he get very tired of eating it very quickly, but being married to him I have discovered my LOVE for this food and the boys as well, so it is fortunate and unfortunate for Wally at times. Back to the reception, so the food was good, but it was the entertainment and people that made the night, especially for the boys. Lots of dancing, which Brayden got to put his moves to work on the dance floor, even Alex busted a few in between running around the restaurant as if he had never had freedom before (which was closed off to the public so he had the freedom to do so). The staff even blew bubbles for the kiddos on the dance floor while the adults were eating, which saved Nehal (my sister-in-law) and myself from meltdowns from some about to be bored kids.

Towards the end of the evening, there was a belly dancer, and if you have seen the boys with the belly dancer, it was hilarious (more than what the pics can show). Alexander, especially, could not and would not leave her alone to even do her dance, so she ended up dancing with him. I was told by everyone I would have my hands full with that one when he got older...yes, I know, I am already scared, even at the grocery store he can pull in the women just sitting in the grocery cart with his snack all over, smiling.

Taking the pics kept me from having to get out on the dance floor :)...so I kept clicking away.
