Trip to Utah and Leah's Wedding

Mid June we went out to Utah for my little sister, Leah's wedding. Her and Dax are a super cute couple and their wedding was beautiful. They were sealed in the Ogden Temple, which ss really pretty.  They just finished doing extensive renovations inside and out and it was beautiful.  It was also the first time in 10 years, and only the second time ever that our entire family (my parents and six kids) has been in the temple all together! The first time was doing baptisms when my youngest brother Josh turned 12.  It was such a wonderful feeling to be there all together again 10 years later with spouses, and lots of our closest friends and family for Leah and Dax's wedding.

Their reception was in my parent's backyard.  All us married girls were totally jealous. My mom and dad and sister Becky have been planning out a re-doing different sections of the yard, and all their hard work totally paid off.  Everything looked amazing!

My brother, Josh even mowed their names into the lawn :)

Their photographer was super fabulous and she did all kinds of family pictures for us :)

Congratulations Dax and Leah!!
It was such a beautiful, perfect day.

The day after the wedding my parents took us to the new aquarium in Draper.  It was totally awesome. The girls loved it!

The second half of the week we met up with all of Ryan's family at Jeremy Ranch.  They all have time shares up there and go up for a week every year.  We happened to be there on the right week! It was a ton of fun hanging out with everyone, going to the zoo, and of course the pool.

On Saturday we got back together with my family for my niece's baptism. We were all in town for the wedding so we were so glad to get to be a part of Jacqui's baptism as well.
It was a jam packed week, but such an amazing vacation, spending lots of time with both families and getting to be a part of some very special events.
