Well, it finally happened! Lindsey and Nate were married Saturday May 3rd. I am so so so happy for them and proud of them. The day was perfect. We woke up in Salt Lake to beautiful weather and the most incredible temple grounds I have ever seen in my life. The tulips and daffodils were seriously unbelievable. I couldn't stop snapping pictures. I will soon post Lindsey and Nate's pictures on my photo blog.
We had lunch in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and then the reception was at Le Jardin. It was the most amazing greenhouse/reception center you could imagine. It is full of flowers, fountains, little rock walking paths...I could go on and on. The surroundings made the reception all the more enjoyable. The boys played in the fountains, ate eclairs, taffy, and cheesecake until they were sick, and ran around with their cousins having such a fun time.
The boys absolutely loved Salt Lake...riding Trax, swimming in the pool, being with all of the family, and Build a Bear. Which brings me to maybe the funniest part of the weekend. Both boys begged to go to Build a Bear all weekend. So they were ecstatic when the time finally came. Brevin chose a leopard and named it Purrito (yes, with a "p") and Kesler chose a cat, surprised us all, and named it Statue. They were both dead serious and dead set on the names so we giggled and went about our day. We also played in the fountains at the Gateway mall, and I was so stinking tired of carrying my camera around that I made Jillene lend me hers for a few shots. I will post them as soon as I get them from her.
