One week later, Clark and Shannon got married in St. George. This was a fun trip for me because I was able to see my parents! Jared and I didn't think Sam would tolerate the drive to Utah, so we flew to Vegas, stayed a night in the Paris Hotel, and then drove to St. George. My parents hadn't seen Sam since February so it was so nice that they drove south to see us! We had such a great time shopping, swimming at the hotels, eating out and of course attending the temple and the wedding.
We had such a fun Memorial Day this year! Jared, Sam and I were in Ojai for Kevin's wedding and so was the rest of the Bigler family. It all started with a brisk 5k walk. Jared's old stake has an annual 5k run every Memorial Day. I entered Sam and me in the stroller division. We were just there for the company though. So the girls all walked while the boys played basketball. Then a freind of the Bigler's invited the WHOLE crew over for a pool party. That was my favorite part of the day. We had so much fun playing in the water, jumping off the diving board, playing Marco Polo and then relaxing in the hot tub. Having all the Bigler boys in there made it overflow--it was great. Then we went and spent some time at Mondo's beach in Ventura. We watched the surfers, played frisbee and dipped our feet in the ocean--it was too cold to get in. WOW we had such a fun day!
Kevin and Becca were married May 23 in Ojai. The ceremony was beautiful, the weather was perfect, the food was great, and the reception afterward was so fun! And the newlyweds looked so happy! BECCA looked lovely. You can't tell in this picture, but she had two little white flowers in her hair.Here's Jared in his tux escorting his bridesmaid after the ceremony. There were 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen--it's a good thing the gazebo was so big!
Here's Aunt Peggy holding Sam. She hardly let go of him all night! Sam loved playing with her necklace so much I think he was even dreaming about it!
The Bigler home in Ojai was full to the brim so me and Jared got to stay with Scott and Ashlyn in their apartment in Ventura. It was nice to be in a quite, less busy place and our kids get a long so well!
And Samuel was loving all the room to move around in!
