Hey y'all! How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? I'm looking forward to catching up on blogs... don't know how long it will take me, but I promise to get around to it soon! Thought I'd break the trip bloggy stuff up into 3-4 parts... start with the drive there. First of all, I'm a moron. I'm not sure how many times I've said that here, but it's still true. You see, I had it all planned out - we would leave at 5:30a.m. and get there around 12:00 - wedding is at 2:00. So, we'd have plenty of time to eat some lunch, hopefully get situated in the hotel and then get me to the Temple on time. So, um, here's the part where I'm a total dork - we are in California - Pacific time. The wedding was in Utah - Mountain time... so, it was 6:30 their time when we left. There is a reason there are no pictures of our trip there. I was crying too hard. I was a horrible Mom and an even worse spouse on the trip there. One of my children has the smallest bladder on the earth. Another one threw up all over. Stop after stop was made and I freaked out a little more each time. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE NEED GAS??" "YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM AGAIN!?!" "WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA THROWING UP BACK HERE"... oh, it was horrible. I was horrible. I've known the gal who was getting married for 26 years. I was NOT going to miss this. We got there in time because Hubby put the pedal to the metal. We stopped at Wendy's really quick for food and then off I went. I got there on time. And then the ceremony actually ended up being delayed for awhile. It was stressful, but it all worked out. I'll post more tomorrow. Right now my eyes are being sucked into my brain :)

hi melissa: i'm first, i'm first! glad you're back and that you made it to the ceremony!

so sorry your drive there wasn't stressfree and peaceful. i have a great story of our kids and throw up on a trip one time -- it was the worst trip and i was totally wiped out and the baby kept throwing up on the airplane and i was the only adult traveling with them. then at almost landing time, i threw up finally. you brought back "happy" memories for me. glad you made it there. good friend for you for going to your dear friend's big day.

i am glad you are back safe and sound, i missed ya, kathleen :)
