So, the wedding was on Thursday. On Friday we drove up to Vernal to hang out in a hotel and play in the pool and have dinner with Allen and Carrie. The plan was to help them with flowers for the reception the next night, but they came about a day and a half late and were all frozen and gross, so that didn't work out. Instead we just chatted and ate and Jessica did my nails.
On Saturday, we woke up and got ready to leave only to find that we had a flat tire on our van. It was -13 degrees outside, so Ross was super excited to work on it. Turns out it was more than just a flat, so we needed to get roadside assistance to come and tow it to a tire place where we bought a new one. That took about 3 hours. Fortunately my kids are pretty great and the hotel receptionist was nice, so we just hung out in the lobby until Ross got the car mess all figured out. We had plans of hitting up some fun stuff in town, but I guess coloring on copy paper in the lobby and having hot chocolate is a good way to spend vacation? I did get my Sunday School lesson planned, though, so that is a plus.
The car got fixed in time for us to head over to Allen and Carrie's house to have some dinner, and then crash my sisters' hotel to get changed. My parents were supposed to stay in the room, but my mom came down with a stomach bug that day and they had to cancel. That was disappointing.
Here are a gazillion pictures of the reception festivities. Again, they are from all over. I hope nobody minds. It was such a fun night!
Dana and Tanner. My cousins rock, by the way!
