Memorial Weekend Wedding

We spent Memorial Weekend in Albuquerque for a Wedding. One of hubby's Grandson's was marrying and invited us to share the festivities with them.

This was the view from our hotel room windows. We had a gorgeous view of the mountains to the east of Albuquerque. (A huge thanks to Linda and Bill for our great room!)

This was the Bishop's first wedding. He was a little nervous but did a great job!

Here is the beatiful bride, Jessica and her handsome groom, Ben.

Here are two of the lovely bridesmaids, Alexie and Kaeli, sisters of the groom. And that darling flower girl is Corine, the grooms little cousin.

The rest of the bridal party, the grooms brother A.J., the bestman, the lovely Jessica with the ever stunning Ben, the grooms oldest brother Josh and another brother Matt. (Can you see the flip flops?)

Sunday we all met at hubby's youngest daughter Sandy's house for a BBQ. Look at the handsome devil I found residing there. His name is Max and he and I became close friends.

Sandy's entire family is very talented. In so many ways that it would be hard to list them all. Here is the drum circle they had after dinner. That is Sandy's hubby Marshall to the left, hubby's son Scott in the middle and the very studly Jake the grandson on the right. These guys were amazing!
We all got together for a family picture and here is our practice shot. I actually really like this one. Shows how wiggly we all were.

And here is our official picture.
From the left, backrow: Marshall, Sandy, Scott, Jake, Cindy, Me, Hubby, Linda, Bill, Connie, Scott, Melissa holding Ella and Decker.
From row left circle:Alex, Chelsea in the back and Sarah, Lilly and Rachel in the front.
From row right circle: Sam and Rochelle in the back and Corrine and Henry in the front.

I did not get ONE picture of the Phoenix family. Never had my camera when they were around. They left Sunday morning and we missed them at the BBQ!

Congrats to Ben and Jessica. Thanks for including us in your happy day!

I like the "wiggly" photo, too...and also the fact that the guys' ties match the ladies' dresses. And isn't that kitty cat cute? Was he in the wedding?
