2 Weddings and a Birthday!
We got to get away this last weekend and that was SOOOOO fun! We left on Thursday afternoon around 4:30 and started our road trip to my in-laws who live in Gresham, Oregon (just east of Portland). We made Very good time and the weather was good on the way there. Sunny barely any rain! I know: Shocking!!! We got there Friday morning @ 3 am pacific time. We then had the great honor to be there for Joseph's Brother's birthday! He turned 29 and he and his lovely wife found out last week that they are expecting their first child! (I say Girl!) Exciting news! So we did a little shopping at the Nike factory Outlet. Joseph got a new pair of running shoes for $30 and I got a pair of Yoga/workout pants which are the most comfortable pants ever! We also had a chance to double date on Friday night with Joseph's brother and his wife Rosanne. We went to the Movies (for FREE; Thank you Chris!) and watched "The Forbidden Kingdom". Also thanks to Joseph's parents for watching our 3 sleeping kids! Then Saturday, we got up early to go to breakfast. we ran some errands and chilled until mid afternoon when it was time to get ready for 2 wedding receptions in 1 evening. Joseph friend Elisha's reception was first. And that was quite the sight! Her mom is a caterer (she catered Ours!) And she is also expert at decorating for weddings! The food was really good,But the desserts were AMAZING! The bride and the groom looked happy too! Then we were off to my friend Minde's wedding. (I was her counselor in primary before we moved to Utah.)It took her a while to find her man but she looked sooooooooo happy! She was so pretty with the biggest twinkle in her eyes! They wouldn't let go of each other's hand! On top of that, we had the chance to chat with our old bishop, his wife and an old sister missionary that we loved! She lives in Salt Lake too so we will be having her over for Sunday dinner soon! After all that excitement, we went back to Joseph's mom and Dad and played Skip-Bo. That was fun too! Finally, Sunday morning we went to sacrament meeting and then we went back to get lunch and pack for home. The trip was Good. We made really good time too! But we got home this morning a little before 2am. The night was short and I am pretty tired but the important thing is that we had a Blast!
