Wedding Fun!

It was a great weekend! Nate's brother, Chad, was married on Saturday. Everything was just perfect! They are a beautiful couple and the ceremony was so special. It was fun to get together with family. It was great to get to know Abbi's family, as well. They are neat people! Especially her sisters, Jessi and Audra. They are so fun! Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Did I really?

Did I just really buy a minivan? I swore I would never own one, but once again, I am eating my words. We broke down and bought one! It is an '06 Toyota Sienna. It is really nice. We debated between a Honda Odyssey and the Sienna, but in the end went for the Sienna. I think in time I will learn to love it. I am just still in shock! Colby loves the automatic sliding door. I think he is going to wear it out. We are happy and know this will be a good fit for our family. Here is a picture of our new ride.

Busy Bee

Life has been so BUSY lately that I haven't had much time to blog. So here is a quick entry. I just quit my job last week. I was doing some Data Entry for a company out of Cedar City, UT. I was able to do it from home, so that was great. But it just got to be too much with kids, church calling and just life! So, I am happy to remove that from my plate.

Yesterday we had Abbi's shower here at the house and it was a great success. I think Abbi enjoyed it. It was so fun to do. Only three weeks until their wedding. I will post some pictures from the shower later.

Tuesday Carson and I leave to head up to my parents in Gig Harbor, Washington for 10 days. We will go back with my mom, so it will be nice to travel with her. I am looking forward to getting together with family and friends. This picture to the right is one of may favorite views in Gig Harbor. It is a beautiful place and I am so fortunate to have grown up there. It is always nice to go home. We always get spoiled while we are there. Every once in a while I get homesick for the water and beautiful views. I look forward to seeing them again.
