PICNIC WEDDING? WTH!!!!


Today was a great Saturday! My Mom asked us this morning if we were interested in having a picnic with the kids and of course we said yes! We got all dressed and ready and did a few errands, then packed lunches and the cars and headed out to the Valley of Fire. It was the perfect temperature for a picnic and no wind, all we had to do was find a spot that wasn't filled with people. We headed to the site called "7 sisters" and saw that there wasn't anyone around so we pulled the cars in and got all the food out. We started to enjoy the quiet and the kids were beginning to explore when a huge party bus pulls in followed by 3 small cars and a limo, and we all look at each other like "What the heck is going on?" Next thing we know people in suits and dresses pile out of the bus and then my eyes blinked two or three times just to focus on what came out of the limo next, a girl in a big white dress!! It was an entire wedding party and all their guests!! I was thinking they were lost, and then I thought well, maybe they are taking some picture out here or something and then a guys busts out a boom box and two others are looking for the perfect spot to hold the ceremony!! We all sat there laughing hysterically, of course the day we decide to have a picnic we end up being in the middle of a wedding! As the smell of the latrines moved through the air, I thought, "yes, of course, the perfect setting for a romantic wedding!" Now of course I had my camera with me and I was all about getting some shots of this, I mean really when will I get this opportunity again?

We really had a great time though and then we headed back into town. We got home and got the kids ready for bed and then Jimmy and I were able to slip out for some "U Swirl" our new favorite place and a little walk through Target. I love days spent with my family, the kids love being with my parents and being outside!! For me I kept thinking "This could be the last time for a long time that we will be out at Valley of Fire with my parents so we have to enjoy this, and thanks to "Tony & Tina's Wedding" it was a day we will never forget!!

Hey, how are ya?!! It's been a long time, i'm so glad you contacted me :) I added your blog to my list if that's okay :) I loved reading it and seeing your family. We tried to get stationed at Buckley once a while back, but there were no openings in my hubby's job, now we're trying to get stationed at Nellis!! You'll like that base, it's nice. Great to hear from you!!!

Not the place I'd pick for a wedding, but looks like it turned out to be a fun afternoon. We're headed to Zion this weekend with my parents. I can't wait! Isn't it nice when our parents invite us to do fun things?

I haven't been on in forever and I am so excited to see these pictures of your family. You guys are so much fun. I love family outings that are new to Jake... Redrock, corrals, etc.

What a funny day and what beautiful pictures! It cracks me up how different people are - I can't imagine a boom box being present for my wedding! But she did pick a pretty site!

Kobi told me about the move! I've been slacking on reading blogs. How exciting and scary (new changes). We will have to get together soon.
