Good Weekend

We had another exciting weekend. We drove up to SLC to go to Courtney who was my best friend in high schools wedding. They got married in the Salt Lake temple so Owen and I got up there early and walked around temple square. I am always shocked how beautiful the temple grounds are and I am always searching for just one weed---just one. Her reception was beautiful and we had a great time.

We then drove back Saturday evening to make it back for Mother's Day. It's always nice that we can spend holidays with both of our families since they are both in Orderville. I am so grateful for my mom and everything she is constantly doing for us. I am also so grateful for a wonderful mother-in-law. It is so great to have such great examples in my life.

We were also able to talk to both of our brothers who are on missions right now. It was nice to talk to them and to hear more about their lives. We love them and are so proud of them. I can't believe how fast their time is going. Nick has 5 months left and Jacob has 10 more months. Nick's release date is October 8th and our baby is due October 9th. So the countdown is on. I am hoping I win this race...
