Our Trip To Texas

On Friday night, we headed down to Texas for Jeff's cousin Amy's wedding.
We got in late at my brother Joe & his wife, Udrika's house.
(Thanks for letting us stay with you!!)
Early Saturday morning, we headed over for breakfast with Jeff's family.
Lily & her cousin Elayne were hanging out there:

We took the kids back to Joe & Udrika's house after breakfast & headed over to see Jeff's aunt & uncle's house & to eat lunch with his family. It was so fun to be able to sit and talk with everyone.

While we were doing that, Joe & Udrika took the kids to a carnival!
They had a BLAST!!!

Thanks for watching the kids!!
(and thanks for the cute pictures!)

They were nice and loaded up on cotton candy when we got back.

Then we all got ready for the wedding!

Here is the beautiful bride:

This is what the boys were all doing while waiting for the wedding to start:

Then the wedding began......

It was a beautiful wedding!
Congratulations Amy & Tim!!

At the reception, they had cute little jewels all over the table.
Zach chose to do this with them......
Jeff & Amy:

We had to leave the wedding before the dance started. =(
Poor Riley had a little too much cake............
I won't describe what happened here on the blog......
but it wasn't pretty......

It was probably a good thing we left a little early though.
About five minutes after we got in the car, this happened:

By the time we got back to Joe & Udrika's house, Riley was feeling much better.
S'Mores had been promised to them earlier in the day,
so after we put Lily to bed, we headed outside to make them.

Riley was not allowed to eat very many.
We didn't want a repeat of earlier in the evening.......

We all got to sleep in a little on Sunday.
Here are the kids with their Uncle Joe.

The boys are showing off their Texas gear they got from Joe & Udrika.

We stayed for lunch & to watch the Chief's game.
Joe let Zach help him turn the burgers!!

Then Trevor (my nephew), Zach, Riley, and Jeff all played a little football.

Then we headed home.
It was a GREAT trip!
We got to see LOTS of family and had a good time talking and catching up with everyone. =)
