The beginning




I know I know, Sarah was even MORE gorgeous than you could have imagined. What a magnificent bride. So I filled my memory card far too early in the trip, burned the first few hundred to CD to free up some space, thought something seemed a little fishy about the CD but little by little, deleted precious photos of Sarah's wedding from my card while I crossed my fingers. Just got home this morning from week in Utah/weekend in San Diego, popped CD in computer and it can't read it. NOOO! So so sad. So I'm siphoning some photos off of Missy's blog for the temple part. Of course I started deleting at the beginning, so I only got rid of the MOST important photos. Boo. All of the above belong to the lovely girl below. Thanks Missy, cutest pregnant mama ever. (You can't see her belly here but just trust me.)



Our desperate attempt at a family photo in a moment of rain reprieve (sadly my hair had already been sacrificed to the pony tail and my necklace already broken.)
Missy's number one, Avery, "golfing" on the damp grass after the storm.
Sophia, not too happy about the storm. :(

Can you tell who's who? People say we look alike. Rebecca thinks we look most alike when we do this face. We discovered it in College. Obviously I'm posting it on my blog so I can boast of ANY similarity with this girl. She's superb. If you haven't read her blog, you really should.

There's too much to say, but I need to start somewhere (with so many pictures to share) and promised myself I'd rest a little during the girls' naps, so I'm off. But we're home and missing everyone you're going to see all over my next few posts....

Um okay, too funny but I recognized two girls from the temple picture. One of them was a really good friend growing up. How funny!

Oh, GEORGEOUS pictures. And so sorry to hear about the non-existing pictures! I hate that. So, I totally feel like I should've been invited to SAS's wedding...little does she know we're actually great friends, you know:) No seriously, I kind of feel like I know her through your blog, and I think she's such a doll. I always love hearing about Sarah. Congratulations, Sarah!! You're a beautiful bride...and Lillie I can't get over your sexy sexy legs in that dress! I bet you knocked Ross's socks off!

You and Rebecca...I miss seeing you two on a daily basis. It felt like we were together much more time than just a day and a half (but it was throughout the whole day that made it so much fun). Thank goodness for Sarah that we all congregated into one spot:)
