This last week I decided to take a little "vacation" since I am officially done with school. It included a 5 day trip to Richfield!! We definitely did miss Darrell, but we were glad he could join us Friday night for a wedding on Saturday.
I started on good ol' Cinco De Mayo with a trip to Manti to share in the excitement of my cousin, Skyler, at his wedding. He and Kristina are so happy, and their sealing was so beautiful! I'm thankful I got the chance to go. Steven was loving running around the temple, but obviously he wasn't used to some of the inclines that are up around the Manti temple. He did a nice nose dive into the pavement, and his nose and forehead had quite the battle wounds for a few days. As soon as Steven saw Grandma and Grandpa Rowley on Tuesday, he shouted "HI!" and suddenly they became his best friends. Especially Grandpa. They had so much fun together, and it's no secret that "branpa" holds a special place in Steven's heart. Steven was his little shadow all week.
Steven loved being able to play in Richfield. My parents had lots of room for him to play, stairs to climb up and down on, a yard to run around in, a neighborhood to go for walks in, and a plethera of new and exciting toys. Like this here rocking chair.
I was going through some of my stuff in my closet, and found this hat. It's now been claimed by Steven. He loves it!
Saturday was a big event, as my good friend, Ashley Kailey, got married, and she asked me to be her maid of honor. (I guess it's technically matron...but oh well!) I thought I looked absolutely fabulous in my beautiful dress, but since I got to play an important part in the wedding and all, I didn't get any pictures of us. Hopefully I'll get some from her soon. I did take some pictures of the cake for her mom (Her mom made my wedding cake as well). She does a fantastic job!
