The happy couple, Brian, Michael (aka. poop protector), Ju & Caroline
This past weekend I got to take Emily and go to my cousin Angela's wedding in San Jose. We flew out of Vegas into San Fransisco, rented a car and spent the weekend all over the Bay area (pretty much). She lives in East Palo Alto, but got married in the Oakland temple and had her reception that night in the Menlo Park area....for those of you who are familiar with the Bay area, that might mean more to know the details. My other cousin Brian McLaws got me a great deal on a hotel in San Jose (thank you very much), so it was sort of a girls weekend for me and Emily :) I spent the rest of the short time we were there visiting with my Uncle Paul's family until I had to drive back to San Fran to fly out on Saturday night. I wish I could have spent more time there, but it was a FUN trip and the wedding was beautiful. I love my cousin Ang like no one else.....and the guy (Matt Richards) that she married seems like a genuinely great person and a good match for her. I think he gets her.....they've been dating for two years, so they've had a chance to get to know one another. One of the things I love about Ang was said best by Matt "she sees the beauty in everything." Which is so true. She's guileless and sincere and as you can see by the pics....truly beautiful! We lived with eachother for much of the time I spent up at BYU. Her family cracks me up and it's great to have spent some time together. My Uncle Lowell and Aunt Jeri made the 12 hour drive for the wedding as well and it was so nice to have them there and hang out with someone I knew for the day. Aunt Jeri basically took care of Emily the whole reception so that I could "mingle" and decorate the car of course ;) Emily was so tired from the days excitement she fells asleep on Aunt Jeri. Well, I'm blogging this quickly before the kids discover me gone from the room....so all in all in was a great time.....LOVED it, and learned a few things in the process. The end.
Em & the temple, chillin', Love them!!!, Aunt Jeri & Em(asleep)
