quick Utah trip

On July 8th we left for a quick trip to Utah and came back on the 9th. A friend was getting married and Ryan convinced me that it would be fun to take the whole family for the lighting-fast trip. He was actually right.
The boys all traveled well (with a little help from the DS), we got to Provo early enough Friday to play at the hotel pool, got to go to the lovely wedding dinner at La Jolla Groves (we recommend it!) where we saw LaVell Edwards, attended the sealing Saturday morning at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple which was wonderful and the kids were excited that they were able to be inside a temple in the waiting room, fished Saturday afternoon at the Spanish Fork Reservoir where my brother Joel met up with us, and headed home.
Thank you Jim and Michelle for giving us an excuse to make such a crazy trip. And thank you Joel for letting us see your Solvang shirt.

I didn't get any good pictures of the newlyweds, but here is a blurry one. I hope Charlie didn't make his way into any of the professional pictures.

Benjamin might be our most photogenic child.

Ryan and the mother of the groom. I don't know who took this picture. Either Ben or Charlie.

Emily you are speedy!
And I blame the passing out on being a little exhausted from the waterski trip and not having eaten anything yet that day.

I am still shocked you guys came up for our wedding. You guys are truly amazing friends. Hopefully I will get to see you in October when I am down in SoCal for Ellie's birthday.

I second Jim's comments - I'm shocked you made it out too but am so thrilled you did! He was absolutely blown away by it. Glad the trip was fun, though quick! Hopefully we will see you again soon.
