Ethan and I went to St Louis this last weekend for my brother's wedding. Chris and Melissa were married in the St Louis, Missouri Temple Saturday, November 22, 2008.
We left Wednesday and dropped Chris and Melissa at the SLC airport then spent the night at Kathryn's house in Springville. Kathryn, Ethan, and I flew out on Thursday afternoon. It was exciting because I surprised my parents and grandparents. They didn't know Ethan and I were coming to the wedding! I wish I had my camera to capture the surprise on mom's face. We surprised them at Joe's birthday dinner. He turned 10 on Thursday.
All my brothers and sisters were there. That is quite the accomplishment because they are from Washington, California, and Utah. We always do our best to make it to special occasions but there are so many of us that it makes it very difficult to get all of us together.
The family also visited our Great Aunt June. That is my dad's dad sister. She is in her 90's. (She's holding Ethan in the picture below) Ethan, David, Joe, Grandparents Gale, and I ate lunch with her when the rest of the gang went to Melissa's endowment session.
Before we caught our planes on Sunday, Lisa, MJ, Kathryn, Ethan, and I went to see the St Louis Archway. It was huge...630 feet up! There is an elevator to the top but we didn't go up.
Over all it was a great trip. Fast, but fun! Ethan did great on the airplanes. Thanks to Kathryn for all your help. I don't think I could have done it without you!
Next trip is home on December 12th to go to the reception in Washington. Let's hope the weather is good and Ethan will be good for the long drive home!
