Much to my husbands disappointment I have been excited about watching todays wedding. He doesn't appreciate the hoopla and that's fine. I've not gone on and on about it and didn't get up extra early or anything but I watched. I figured it was a girl thing. I must admit though, I never thought in a million years that it would be my son who would be the one sitting with me so excited about this royal wedding!
How do I know he was excited?? Well... there are some things that my boy LOVES and they all seem to be a big part of the coverage on television. I've been tapped (sometimes smacked) and told to "look" more times than I can remember. Here are his faves;
- Waving - he's been waving back to the newlyweds all day. You couldn't ask for more waving!
- Hats - Caelan loves hats. It was one of the first signs he knew. He still points out strangers wearing hats in the grocery store regularly, so you can only imagine his excitement watching all those ladies attending the wedding today. Although I love the British tradition of wearing hats to a wedding, some of those were pretty ridiculous!
- Cars - one after another, after another, delivering guests wearing hats and royals waving (see number 1 & 2). Could it get any better? Oh yes, because carriages apparently look a lot like cars, and carriages are surrounded by horses. Horses!! Lots and lots of horses!
- Clapping - cheering crowds must mean we should be clapping and getting excited! So we did!
What a great day!
