My Baby Brother got Married

On October 8th my little Brother CJ married the love of his life Casey! I'm so happy for them the wedding was gorgeous and you could tell they were just over the moon happy!

The night before we did their wedding dinner. It was held at Thanksgiving Point 'Rose Room' and Magleby's catered. I will admit it wasn't like my fav meal ever, but the cheesecake was UGH AH-MAZING! All Casey's family spoke, and then my Sister Amy and I spoke. My parents and then it ended with Casey's sister and CJ's good friend signing a gorgeous song!

This is the only pic I got of the night :(

The next morning was THE day! They chose to be sealed in the Payson Temple. I had never been, but its so gorgeous! It was neat place. It was such a cool thing to be in the sealing room with my entire family. Sisters, spouses, parents, my brother and his new bride!

That night was the reception and it was in this gorgeous backyard of a family in my parents ward. It seriously was a fairytale. The colors were Burgundy, Nude, Blush, with like hints of greens from like ivy and stuff...does that make sense? haha She wanted it to feel outdoorsy .

Anywho, I can't believe my baby brother is married and Casey is the MOST perfect fit for out family and for CJ!

San Juan Capistrano, Cali

Every year my in laws have a little time share, we try to make it every time. This year we went to San Juan Capistrano, Cali. We flew out on Saturday and Ash was so excited to get on a plane. Bos was a different story. Luckily he took pity on us and fell asleep on the plane!

We ate dinner when we got there at this Mexican restaurant that WAS BOMB! So good! 
El Torito, then topped it off with a coffee shop that made incredible ice cream and cones!

Sunday Morning we headed to the local LDS church for Sacrament meeting. Then we went to our hotel for lunch and headed to the BEACH! We were on the hunt for the perfect one for the boys and the one we picked was fun but still not exactly what we wanted but its all good!

We grilled steaks, salad, and yummy veggies. Put the boys down for bed and played Monopoly which was the theme of the trip every night!

Monday was LEGOLAND! What Ashton was SO excited for! We literally picked the HOTTEST day of the week to go, but it was the only day we could do. We went when it opened and stayed till JUST before dinner. It was amazing and so fun but definitely not a place we would do again, ya know?

Last year when we were in San Juan Capistrano, we found this BBQ/Pizza joint that was amazing! So it was a MUST again! Its Called Bubba Kahuna's if you are in the area, get the Pulled Pork Sandwhich and PIZZA!

Tuesday we literally just wanted to relax all day. We went to breakfast that the hotel provided then this girl and Boston took a much needed nap. We then all went down to the pool for a couple hours.

Then that night we went out to dinner at Denny's which is like SO random. But its kinda an inside joke and family tradition. So it is what it is. haha but it was fun!

Then Wednesday was short lived. Some more pool time then packed up and headed to the airport. It was such a fun little getaway!
