Completely Random...

Yesterday was a beautiful day. It was a little cooler than is typical for this time of year, so yesterday evening was so nice and pleasant - except for the gnats! Grandma and Pa had just finished cutting the grass, so it made a perfect outfield for fly ball practice. Zac and Will love for Pa to hit ground balls, throw pop flies, throw batting practice, and any other thing that has to do with baseball. I asked Zac if he was ready to go inside (because of the gnats), and he said, "I could stay out here forever!"

Saturday night was Joel and Lauren's reception. This picture was last minute and thrown together, but it has our whole clan in it, so it works! If you haven't noticed, the wedding colors were purple and gold - ECU colors. As I was looking at this picture, I realized that all of the adults in our family have attended ECU at some point. Of course, ma and pa met there in the library and that's where it all began. Emily and Joella and their husbands are all ECU grads. I went there for my freshman year before transferring to BYU and Kyle finished up his last few courses there to get his bachelors before law school. Leah and Rodney are both ECU alumni. Lauren was a ECU cheerleader and Joel just finished up one degree there and will be starting his next in June. Mike just barely transferred out to BYU, but put in his two years as a Pirate before heading out west. So, I guess it was quite appropriate that we were all donning the purple and gold!

Wedding Day

My brother, Joel, got married yesterday to his high school sweetheart. It was such a wonderful day and I took so many pictures, I can't sort through all of them tonight, but here are a few. I thought I'd share a pic of all of my sisters and their spouses as well. I realized as I was posting these that I left poor Mikey out, but I'll dedicate a whole post to him soon. I'll post millions more wedding pics later, but I'm tired and I'm going to bed. Aly

Fun in the Sun

We have a favorite spot to visit in the summer. The boys LOVE to go to Aunt Glenda's house. (She isn't really an aunt by blood, but she might as well be.) She had a perfect little spot on the shore with no shells and perfect sand for the boys to dig and play and swim. This was our first visit of the season, but I'm sure we'll be down there several times a week from here on out.

The boys had a blast and I enjoyed catching a few rays! I certainly need some sun, so it was great. The boys love to be buried in the sand, but will only stay there for about 30 seconds after all of the work is done!

I am so happy it's getting warmer and looking forward to wonderful summer!
