Auntie Butts Gets Married!

This last weekend, my beautifu little sister got married! We made the trip to Logan, Utah to witness her and Jabin be married in the Logan Temple. It was a beautiful ceremony and I'm so glad we got to be there to share in her special day! We traveled to Logan Friday and were lucky enough to get to have one of Megan's good friends, who was a bride's maid, travel with us. She was a huge help with the boys. I'm not sure she will ever want to have kids after this trip, but we really liked having her with us and the boys love her! Friday night after we arrived, we went to the venue where she was having her reception to decorate. After a few hours of decorating, we met up with a bunch of our family at the good ole' Chuck-o-Rama (it was the one of a few places that could fit 20+ of us together) for some dinner. After dinner, we went back to the hotel and had planned to take the boys swimming, but found that the pool was full of San Jose football players, so we opted to take a swim in the huge jacuzzi tub in our room instead. Saturday, my sister and Jabin were married at 10. The day started out rainy and just as they were coming out of the temple, it turned to snow and it snowed and it snowed and it snowed! It was crazy cold and very wet! After the wedding and a few pictures, we went back to the hotel, changed and then headed to the luncheon put on by Jabin's parents. Lunch was at the Firehouse pizza and we enjoyed some great pizza. After pizza, the boys all went back and took naps while I went and helped finish decorating. At five, we had to take pictures because of the bad weather and then at six, the reception started. There were lots of people that came to congratulate them on their day. That night we took down everything in record time and then went back and let the little boys finally swim in the pool. Sunday, we woke up to more snow but waited for the sun come out a bit to take off. We had really bad roads from Logan to Bear Lake and some over South Pass, but other than that the roads and weather were great. We are so happy for Megan and Jabin and excited to have Jabin as part of our family now!!
