Utah Trip #2: Little Brother's Wedding

As I wrote before, after my first trip to Utah, pretty much alone with 2 kids for 2 weeks, we planned accordingly for this second trip: Me and Joe...NO KIDS!
Joe's mom graciously came down to San Antonio and house sat for us over the weekend while we flew up to Utah Thursday to Sunday. It was a very nice break and so much better!
I have to admit that I was singing "na na na na na" in my head to all my siblings who had to juggles their kids the whole day while Joe and I just sat and enjoyed it all. Again, it was so lovely :)
Anyways, enough gloating.
We got in THursday night and nothing really happened, we just got settled in. Friday was the big day for my little brother John-Charles and his bride-to-be Ashley. They had a Brunch in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building so we headed up there.

OH look who it is, still newly weds Stewart and Jenny!
OH look who it is, the "no kids" couple, Joe and LYssa...with a sling on his arm. We did try to cover it for pictures...lol not that we were ashamed of it but it just stuck out like a sore pinky ;)

During the Brunch, so so silly Ashley and JC

JC and ME

I love to see the TEMPLE

OH look, we're getting married! OH wait, no, we're not. we just like to take couple shots with no kids...did I mention we didn't have the kids with us?

Lovely ceremony and here they are!

Here they are in like 10 years, a gazillion kids around their legs :)

REception was in our church in Highland and it turned out BEAUTIFUL! Her colors were black and green, which I LOVE

Yummy catered food!

How pretty is her cake?!

Gotta love those green apples!

Look at the happy, MARRIED couple!

Presents :)

Oh here is Jenny and Stew again! You would think they still thought it was their wedding day...JK Penny!

Wha wha... car attack! They covered the car with suran wrap and soggie balls..plus filled the car full of empty soda cans, 3 garbage bags worth!

Let the fun begin! Dancing is always a past time of mine

They thought they could just sneak out
WEll that was fun.
Saturday was Joe and Lyssa day.
We started off by sleeping in.
HIt a movie with Jenny, Stewart and Katie
Hit Wendy's for lunch to get ready for our big event for the day: Hike Stewart Falls!
Why is it the big event?
A little over 4 1/2 years ago, that is where Joe proposed to me. It was a different experience this time. The sun was out so that was a bit easier. Anyways, it turned out to be a great "walk down memory lane" We were so glad we did it. We just weren't dressed for it so we had to fashion a blanket

After our wonderous hike, we did another "walk down memory lane" and hit one of our favorite places that we liked to go to when we lived in Provo, La Dolce Vita. It's not too bad for the price.
After that, we set back for home to pack and get ready for the flight back home.
A disclaimer: We really do LOVE LOVE LOVE our girls but we also LOVED LOVED LOVED this little rendevous without them. It think it is much needed for anyone!
