A whole lot of catching up to do

The last couple of weeks have been PACKED with fun things! Jenni's wedding being the biggest so i'll do a whole separate blog all about that! We went camping with the Lance family, SO FUN! We went on Bike rides, ate a lot of YUMMY food, played lots of games, and just enjoyed being together! Then, the next weekend Court and John came! Yahoo!! We had SO much fun shopping, eating, shopping, eating more, shopping more, playing cards, went to Monterey and the Aquarium (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the passes), and hung out with the fam! Also, SO FUN! On tuesday Court, John and I drove to Oregon. Jarom couldn't come til Friday, he had to work. It was our first time being apart since we got married. It was a little rough but we were both really busy so it wasn't too bad. And it was only a couple days, so not too bad! We went to the temple with the Jolley's on Wednesday and that night threw a surprise party for Dad and Carol. They were So surprised! It was a lot of fun. We ate cake and ice cream and opened presents and played games. The next day was a busy, busy day! We spent the whole day getting things ready for Jenni's Bridal shower! It was a success and so much fun! Friends and Family came and we ate a lot and played some FUNNY games. She got a lot of good stuff! It was really fun to see everyone again! Friday, JAROM SHOWED UP! I was so excited to see him! I felt like we were engaged again, waiting for his arrival! We did a lot of flower stuff for the wedding and then court, John, jarom and I took a little walk by the river.I had to take off that night to Portland with the girls for the wedding. we all stayed in a Hotel, since the wedding was at 9 a.m. and it was 2 hours away. It was nice and really fun hanging out with the girls! It was a bummer leaving Jarom again, after he had just got there. Oh well, we had fun painting toe nails and talking about wedding stuff :) Next morning we got up bright and early! WEDDING DAY!! Ill post all about that later but everything was PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL and jenni looked amazing and so happy!!! The Reception was incredible and SO much fun! After the Reception we played games with my family. We all had a LONG day so we were all pretty tired. Sunday court and john left, BUMMER :( and we went to church. After church we ate lunch and watched Jenni and Michael open presents and then hit the road. We're home now and i'm SO proud of myself, i didn't even cry!! I've NEVER done that when i leave home, or my family! I think i'm getting better! Sorry there's not much detail but i didn't want this to be a FOREVER long post and i really just want to get to the pictures! So get ready, there's LOTS of pictures!

I want to go to the beach soooo bad! Might have to talk Steve into going to CA before summer is over.

The shower was super fun and so was the wedding. Great to see you guys as always!
