Jason's little brother, Jesse, got married in the Las Vegas Temple April 15th. To be honest, I was excited for them to get married but not so excited about taking the trip with 3 kids--especially with a new baby! But it was actually a good trip and it's a good thing that Hayley was so little because she slept most of the way. She only cried for the last 3 ish hours of the 12 hour trip. I'd say that's pretty good! It should have only taken 9 hours but we made a couple long stops so it took longer! On the way home, it only took us 10 ish hours so not bad. Here's the boys at the beginning of the trip with there dvd player! I have no idea how our parents traveled without the electronics we have now! I wouldn't want to do it without a dvd player now!
And here's the happy couple! Congrats Jesse and Suzanne!
I wasn't planning on going into the temple for there sealing because I wasn't about the leave the kids with a complete stranger but Uncle Doug and Aunt Jerico came to the rescue. They live in Vegas and have some good friends who were more than willing to watch them. I just have to tell you how wonderful these people are! Thanks Damien and Bren!! Our boys don't just go to whoever whenever! They are pretty people shy! Even people they know so when they attached to these people right away I knew they were great! Bren came over the night before to meet us. Within 20 minutes of her being there, the boys were showing off there mad dancing skills and sharing there food with her! She just has a way with people! I'm so grateful for them for being willing to spend a whole day with us! The boys LOVE them and still talk about them! Wish they lived closer!
Night before we headed home--family night at California Pizza Kitchen! Love that place! (Probably because we don't have one anywhere close to us!)
Wow, this was a nightmare!! We wanted to take the boys to M&M world and to see the light and water show and we'd been telling them we could go. Well, we ended up going later than planned! The strip was packed with people, elevators weren't working so we had to carry the stroller up and down stairs, the strip is no place for children (especially at night), it was hot, Hayley was fussy, Kyden almost fell asleep before we even got to M&M world, we parked a long ways away (thinking we were closer), we didn't even see the water show because we were exhausted...made for a long night and a pretty pointless stroll down the strip! But we made it and got a picture and some M&M's because I wasn't about to leave that store without something to show for our LONG walk!!!
I love this picture! I think it's so cute! It was from the reception in
Shelley the weekend after the wedding!
Cousins--Brielle & Hayley
Cousin Brielle was able to fly here with her dad for the reception. Her mom had just had a baby boy so she wasn't able to come! We missed her but were happy that Travis & Brielle were able to come! It was fun seeing them!
