Liz and Cory got married! The wedding was SO WONDERFUL! And the receptions were gorgeous! They got married in the Logan, Utah temple, had a reception in Logan, and then another the following week in Puyallup.
We all flew out to Utah for the wedding and spent a few days with Granny B and Grandpa Joe in Orem.
Charlie was a champ on the planes (and it was so much easier with Keith along this time!). He liked watching all the action out the window during our layover in Atlanta.
Liz picked out some simple and beautiful wedding colors. I absolutely loved her dress, Charlie's green bowtie, our bridesmaids dresses, and Brooke's little dress (click on the collage above to see them all). When you are this cute it is socially acceptable to chew on your dress.
Keith's parents (Granny B and Grandpa Joe) drove us up to Logan and played with and took care of Charlie during the wedding and reception. It was so sweet of them and definitely made Charlie's day more enjoyable.
The rest of our time in Utah was fabulous as well. We got to go on our first date in over four months (thanks Grandma!) and visit with family and friends. We had a fun BBQ with the Cleggs on Labor Day. We love and miss these guys!
The Grandparents took us on a walk up Provo Canyon and it was SO NICE! I had really missed the mountains and that non-humid, mountain air felt wonderful!
Along the way we did a little bird-watching, a little botanizing, and saw a beaver too!
Grandpa Merrill (Great-Grandpa to Charlie) came over for a visit.
Four generations of Merrills. What a fabulous group of guys!
We also couldn't miss out on a trip to Mona for a Sunday dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Lowe. It was great to visit with them again.
Tuesday Keith dutifully flew back to NC and Charlie and I continued on to Washington for more family fun!
We love our family! Thanks for the wonderful trip!
