We had such a fun trip to Utah! I'm am so glad that Marty and Wendy got married because not only do I now have another sister, but it gave us the perfect excuse to come and visit everyone! The vacation itself was really fun but I do have to say that the traveling to and from Utah was really not fun. But we made the most of it. I am sure that lots of people in the airport thought that we were crazy and/or annoying but you do what you have to do to keep kids entertained haha.
After we arrived in Utah we were able to settle in a bit the first day and then we were off to Logan for Marty and Wendy's wedding ceremony. We got to stay in a hotel the night before the big day. We went out for a pre-wedding dinner with everyone and did a mini celebration for Kayla because it just so happened that her birthday was the same day as the wedding. After dinner we went to everyone's room in the wedding party and handed out birthday cupcakes. I totally forgot to take pictures of that part but Kayla thought it was lots of fun. She did get a little carried away and I had to explain to her a few times that there were only certain doors that we could knock on haha.
I woke Kayla up a little earlier on her Birthday so that she could open her presents before all the wedding craziness began. I had to make a pit stop at a store though because you know how there is always one thing that you forget to bring on your trip, well the thing that I forgot was Kayla's Birthday present that was sitting nicely on the Dryer so that I wouldn't forget it when we left haha.
The Ceremony was just beautiful! I am so glad that we were able to make it. After the Ceremony was over and snapped some pictures we were off again to Bountiful to the Luncheon. And then took off to This Is The Place in SLC where the Wedding Reception was held. I think that we were so blessed because it seemed like we left each place just in time to miss the blizzard that hit Utah that day. Despite the bad weather, it was such a great day. The kids had fun exploring everywhere and looking all fancy in their Flower Girl and Ring Bearer outfits. Kayla said that the best part was "Eating the ice cream with ANY topping I wanted! I even got TWO cherries on top!". Kayla and Teyton's eyes seriously got so big when they saw the Ice Cream spread that was put out during the reception haha. After the day was over there were OUT!
