canadian love

Cardston, Lethbridge temple...awesome. We were able to attend a session there Saturday morning where Kurt's fiancee Paige went for the first time. They put on their wedding attire afterwards to get pictures with 'her temple.' They will be getting married in Idaho Falls this weekend.

That evening they had a reception in Lethbridge and the line was nonstop the whole time. It was beautiful evening of pink and yellow and happy faces.
All of us girls and Lincoln hanging out during the party in our pink attire.
Kurt and his sisters, what a great night.


"o canada"

My little bro is getting married May 2 (to a girl from Canada) and so Kandis and me headed west a week early to make it to the Canadian festivities. We road-tripped north over the weekend to Lethbridge, Alberta and can I just say it was the flattest place I have ever been (flatter than the mid-west even). I was hoping it was going to be mountainous everywhere but that ended halfway through Montana. bummer.


hanging out midtown

We headed to midtown this past weekend for the annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival held at Piedmont Park which is pretty much a bunch of people hanging out with their dogs (for the dog contests) and a bazillion fine art vendors. The park it is held at is ginormous and you pretty much cruise the whole thing and look at art while munching on the ever popular dippin' dots (our snack of choice). Do you love Steve's amazing hair? Yes, he's growing it out.

If you did not know, this is a pink dogwood...


for your bug pleasure

I found this creature by my door. Have you seen this beauty before?


Happy Day Mr. Lincoln

Our nephew Lincoln had an amazing animal party for his 1st birthday.
They played Zebra Bowling with water bottles and a coconut.
Then they went on a lion hunt. And then they did an egg hunt with animal eggs.
Lincoln enjoyed his first cake.
How come the adults didn't get fun animal ear headbands? We had to get a pic of ourselves with them on.
