The perfect summer wedding!

Congrats Crystal and Morgan!! And thanks for letting us be part of your special day. Crystal's wedding was perfect in every way. It really was the best weekend- a stunning bride, beautiful bridesmaid's dresses, lovely flowers, amazing food, and my favorite part, dancing to an incredible band. For those of you who know Crystal, she is sweet, loving, and very down to earth. I have loved having her a sister-in-law and now am so grateful that she is such a wonderful aunt to Daniel.

We wish we could have driven away in this sweet ride!

She looks gorgeous!

I loved her colors- bright green, mango, and gold

Ryan hid in a suitcase in the car that Crystal and Morgan were taking on their honeymoon. After they had been driving a few minutes, he popped out and yelled "hey guys!". It would have been better had he popped out once they arrived at the hotel, but we all still got a kick out of this.

Exploring Rochester

My mom, dad, and sister came into town last week and we were able to check out so many beautiful places here in upstate NY. I loved showing them around our new home, and the trip was perfect except for the fact that both my parents and my sister, Stephanie, came down with the flu the lasted couple of days. I felt so badly for them! I think they still had a great time :)Niagara Falls



This picture cracks me up. Stephanie, my dad and I were sitting in the front seat (it was a bench seat) and after 20 minutes of driving we looked back to see Daniel still awake (and laughing hysterically) while Bryson and my mom were out cold! We thought Daniel was sleeping as well, so we are not sure how long he was back there laughing by himself.

Deep Creek part 1

We just got back from 2 glorious weeks at Deep Creek (Maryland) with the Richards. Here are about half of the pics that I want to post- so more are on there way.
Crab night with the whole fam
We went through 2 of these. It was so messy and I was still hungry after we were done.
