Weddings, Blessings, and Birthdays .... woohoo!

On Saturday morning the family attended the wedding of Mark and Melanie.  Melanie has known the Palmer clan her whole life and is an adopted member of the family.  She and Chlesea are best friends and Mel was included in the majority of their family activities.  The wedding was gorgeous, and they looked so happy to finally be getting married.  Brian (my father in law) was one of her dad's who gave her away, the other was her step-dad.  That was very special to see as well.  I didn't get a very good picture of Chelsea walking down the isle, but she looked beautiful, and fulfilled her role as Matron of Honor beautifully.  The best memory maid that morning was the ring barer.  He was a little guy and was terrified to walk down the isle (it was a HUGE church and alot of people).  His shoes squeaked, and he cried calling for his mama, the entire way down ... but he did it!!!!  It was ADORABLE!!!! 
The restaurant catered the reception and since Justin and I were already attending, we were also the servers for it.  It was a lovely reception, and went on forever.  I ended up leaving early to relieve my girl friend, Kathy, who was watching Evan.  The entire family (cousins, grandparents, Aunts and Uncles) all got sick this week, and Evan was one of the unlucky's to catch it.  He wasn't doing too badly when I dropped him off, but I guess he got a lot worse while Kathy was watching him.  Thank you Kathy for your service ... and sorry!!! 
The next day Chelsea and Hans blessed their baby Austin out in Mark and Lanny's ward.  It was so fun to have the entire family together again.  After church we took a couple pictures, and all of us headed to Lanny's house to celebrate the blessing and Logan's birthday.  Since we moved here in June Logan asks everyday when his birthday is, and if we will buy him Transformers because he is "asessed" with them.  (that is how he says "obsessed").  I think he made out pretty good.  What do you think?
