Happy for all her sisterly feelings was the day on which Clarissa got rid
of her most deserving younger brother.
The groom was dashing and the bride looked like a princess. The Manti Temple was an experience in itself- so much beautiful architecture and history! It was a wonderful, breezy, slightly frigid morning at the temple.
The receptions was lovely, with good food, family, and friends. My favorite part, aside from the cream puffs, was getting these handsome boys together. There's just something about little boys in matching bow tie outfits that I can't. even. handle.
Porter walked around like this most of the night. It was adorable.
One of the best parts of a family wedding is that you get to hang out with some of your favorite people before and afterwards. We stayed at my parents house along with my grandparents, and it was wonderful for me to watch my kids get to know my Grandma and Grandpa.
We also got to see my Dad's "new" office and have snacks from the top secret stash in the fancy conference room and walk along the hidden trail to an undiscovered waterfall. Needless to say the boys were very impressed with Grandpa's job, especially when you took into account that he was mere seconds away from a DUCK POND.
Another great thing about being at a wedding in Provo is being near some of our favorite places. We got to take Eli and Porter "up into the mountain" at Rock Canyon, and guys, there were BUGS (something of great interest around these parts). And since picking up rocks is one of Porter's top 3 favorite things and Eli is always "training" to climb like an explorer we had a hard time convincing them to come home again.
Anyway. To the happy couple: Mazel tov. May you live happily ever after.
