Silas and Bianca's Big Day!

Silas and Bianca's big day was June 23, 2011. What a fun, amazing weekend it was! Kristen and I drove up together with Miss Madison on Friday morning. We headed up early to help with decorating and for the rehersal. It was fun to visit on the drive up and to try and keep Madison happy. She did so-so on the drive. She was acutally a pretty big pill most of the weekend until Daddy got there. It was still fun to have some one-on-one time with her. We got there just in time for lunch and met the whole crew at an itilian place then headed to the hotel for naps! {The getaway car}

That evening was the rehersal and dinner. I slacked and didn't get pictures of either one. The rehersal went great, short and sweet. :) The dinner was DELICIOUS! The Thompsons took care of that and did an amazing job. Enchildads were on the menu. Very fun evening and we ended the evening with a little visiting and going to bed early like the awesome fuddy duddies we are! :){Heading to the rehersal and dinner}

Saturday morning we woke up nice and early to go get decorating. It was a really fun morning and everything came together SO cute! My Dad has such a vision for planning weddings! He has the best ideas and knows how to make them come together. He and Bianca together came up with a great wedding! Kristen enterained Madison most of the time cause she is an awesome Auntie! We headed back for some lunch and beautifying after we were done.

My parents got a super nice suite for all the girls to get ready in so all the girls crowded in there to get pretty. It was a pretty quite group which was kinda funny...It was fun though. Melissa D came to the rescue and did Kristens, mine and Biancas hair for the wedding. We all turned out great - she's amazing! Bianca had her hair done once but didn't love it so she asked Melissa to do it and it turned out awesome! After I got ready I dashed out to meet Jason who just got there with the boys. We got them ready and dashed out to get pictures.

The kids did pretty good for pictures. Madison totally hammed it up which was kinda weird for her in front of all those people. But she just ATE it up. Too cute! The boys not so much, Blake cried a little but ended up doing alright. Cam just lost it! Way too many strange people and he just cried and cried. Oh well...They did walk down the aisle wonderfully. I was SO proud of them! They walked down and were the cutest part of the wedding. The ceremony was very sweet. I am so excited for those two!

After the ceremony Jas took the kids back to the hotel to eat and rest. They had a long weekend and were ready for some quite time! I got to stay and enjoy the rest of the reception. Kristen and I stayed to help clean up to because they had a deadline to get out of the park - which we barely made! We all almost ended up hiking out of the canyon. My Dad had to walk half way because we only had one vehicle left, a small, packed truck with only a couple seats. He had my Grandpa drive Mom, Kristen and I to the hotel and then he raced back for my Dad. Whew...We all ended making it out safe and sound though! :)

We all got a good night sleep, had breakfast together in the morning and headed home. It was a really fun trip and a really great wedding! Jason really was super Dad with all the helping he did. He only complained just a little bit about the pictures too! :)
