Silly Monkey Stories - Dova at Miss Liz's Wedding

Dova's preschool teacher Liz graciously (bravely) invited her students to attend her wedding ceremony.  Amazingly enough, the six kids who attended (3 and 4-year-olds), were very quiet and relatively well-behaved.  There was no talking or running in the aisles.  Of course I had to give a pep talk ahead of time since this was the very first time Dova set foot inside of a church.  And it was a perfect opportunity to practice photography under extremely low light conditions. I got to use all three of my lenses!


Just because the kids were relatively well-behaved didn't mean there was no monkey behavior from this girl.  I made up a new saying for it, "You can dress her up, but you can't take the monkey out of the girl."  Here's proof:
