Austin and Sara's Wedding

This is my first time doing this so sorry if it is boring! We just got back from California a few days ago. We went home for Austins wedding. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun! They had a huge tent set up in the field behind my parents house where the reception was held. It was set up 3 days before the wedding, so Madi had lots of fun playing out in the field back there. The gate to the field from the back yard was open just about the whole time we were there, so Madi just saw it as an extension of the back yard and ran her little legs off! Junior (my parents dog) did a pretty good job of watching after her as usual. (don't worry, we watched her too) The first day that we were there, Seth, Austin and all of Austins groomsmen went out to San Diego for an all day bachelor party. They went to some man made wave thing that you surf on, and then to the beach for some playing and surfing, fallowed by El Torrito for dinner. That same evening, I went out to dinner with the bridesmaids and Sara. It was fun to get to know all of Sara's friends and her sister. Sara's Mom and sister Jess are so much fun by the way! I am so glad that they are part of our family now! On Friday we all got busy setting up the decorations in the tent and doing wedding stuff. In the evening Brittany (Seths sister) and her husband Adam came down and visited with us. We went to the beach and watched Cody and Seth fly their planes. Madi played in the sand and watched Aunt Brittany play in the water. Seth joined her a little later. After we got Madi down for bed Seth, Adam, Brittany and I all went out for some milkshakes and just visited. It was fun to see them. Saturday morning we got up bright and early and drove out to San Diego for the sealing. It was so nice! Austin and Sara are so cute! It was fun to watch them all weekend. After the sealing we did the usual, take pictures and eat a tail gate party style lunch in the parking lot afterwards. Madi had a lot of fun playing with Seth on the huge grass hill and blowing all the dandelions. It was a perfect day outside! Afterwards we all drove back and got everything ready for the reception. They had a nice ring ceremony under a huge tree. Madi was the ring bearer and she did so good! I was so proud of her. She practiced only 2 times right before the real thing and then she didn't even get scared when all the seats were filled with people. Not like we were surprised (she is a huge ham). It was so cute to watch. Seth walked with her from the backyard to the very last row of chairs and then she walked the pillow up to the bestman all by herself. I wish I had a picture of that! But, anyways the reception was a ton of fun! We all danced and had a good time being together with everyone! We missed all of our family that couldn't make it! But we still did our best to have fun ;) On Sunday we all were dead tired but managed to have a little surprise baby shower for Stacey in the back yard. It was fun as well, we really surprised her! I totally for got to take pictures at the shower but maybe Cody took some and they will post them on their blog?She got all kinds of cute stuff for her little girl! Thanks to everyone that participated in my silly games and came to the shower. I have made this blog too long I think, but oh well. It was a fun long weekend with my family! Oh yeah, and thanks Cody for all the pictures! Your camera is awesome!

Brit,
These pics are so darn cute! I'm extra glad that you have a blog now since I'm not quite as much in the loop anymore. It's just not the same when I'm not at your parents house just about every other weekend. I hope everything is going well; we were so sad to miss the wedding. Keep in touch.

Thanks for having a blog spot. It's good to hear the news.

I would think that Seth would want 12 little girls seeing as how he adores Madi. Maybe you will have triplets!! Wouldn't that just blow Seth's mind?! I would come down and help...
