My Brother's Wedding

After our wonderful vacation to Carmel, we headed out a few days later to Scottsdale, Arizona for my little brother's wedding.  While I was a little reluctant on how the boys would do spending roughly 10 hours in the van, they did awesome!  We woke up early and headed out on the road and arrived in Scottsdale around 4:30 pm.

One of the big time added bonuses was the anticipation of seeing all of my family.  Since we live so far from Arkansas, we very rarely see them, and now we were able to see them all at once!  All of my dad's side of the family had only met Sawyer once when I flew home last fall, so it was so fun to swim together, eat together, and let the boys show off for all the adoring grandparents;)

Here are a few pics from our time in Arizona...some of these are pics that I snapped and some are screen shots from the photographer, so may be a little grainy:)

Swimming.  The everyday ritual:)

My beautiful mom...isn't she precious?

My wonderful mom and my sweet stepdad, Bob.

My awesome Dad and my lovely stepmom, Stephanie.

Someone's whole night was made when he was able to down a glass full of sparkling apple cider. So proud!

My handsome, big boy!

It was very HOT, but the setting was beautiful.

My sweet family with my brother and both sets of parents.

Being the ring bearer is lots of hard work and requires lots of concentration!  The REAL ring was on there:)

After the "I do's" ;)

Chris and his beautiful bride, Rebecca

The sparkler exit was a big hit, especially with Coop!  I've never seen such big sparklers before!

The candy bar was a big hit as well...Coop (and Jerrod) couldn't keep their hands out of it!

Daddy and sweet baby boy during the ceremony.

Me and my "escort" to the reception;)

Chris and Rebecca, I wish you both the very best and pray for your lives and your marriage often.  He, our Heavenly Father, is the source for everything you will ever need.  We love you guys!
