Cathy's Wedding

My friend Cathy from work got married back in October. I was one of her bridesmaids. The wedding turned out great and it was a lot of fun practicing my photography skills.

These cake pictures turned out perfect with the sunlight shining through the window.

Fishing Tales

On Labor Day weekend Dan and I went camping and tested out our new float tubes. We decided we wanted to try out Tony Grove lake. Although we didn't have any luck we still had a lot of fun. The next day we decided to do one of our favorite types of fishing...river fishing. Dan decided that instead of the regular live bait (nightcrawlers) that we bring, that he wanted some other 'natural' live bait. I can almost guarantee that you will laugh at while we were at our campsite we each grabbed a 2x4 and starting running around chasing grasshoppers. I'm sure we looked real funny running around smacking the ground with these 2x4's! Once we had our bait we went to test it out. For all the trouble we went through, you think we would have caught at least one fish with a grasshopper...well you guessed it-we didn't catch any with our 'natural' live bait.

Dan and I absolutely love fishing together but we never have very good luck....although we sure do have fun with each other and always walk away some crazy fishing stories and some great memories.

Dan's 25th Birthday!!!

We celebrated Dan's 25th birthday by going boating at Hyrum Dam. It was a lot of fun and was a good end to my summer since it was the last weekend before school started again. I would have to say that I came up with a pretty great gift for Dan. I was able to come across an AMAZING DEAL on a float tube at my work. It was such a great deal that I just had to buy one for myself too. And of course, when you buy a float tube you have to buy all the other gear. So he also got waders, boots, and flippers.

Little kids can fall asleep anywhere. This is my niece Taryn, asleep.....but still holding on.

Finally getting around to posting my bridal pictures...

Here are just a few of my favorites.

My Grandma Moss that passed away at the beginning of the year gave this bracelet to me awhile back. A couple of weeks before she passed away she told me that she didn't know if she was going to live long enough to be at our wedding. I was her only granddaughter. I was really close to my grandma and was devasted that she wasn't going to be there. I wore this bracelet at our wedding to honor my grandma, in a way it also represented her and made me feel as though she were there with me.

I couldn't decide what shoes to wear for the I just decided to wear all three! Out of all the shoes I own, the cowgirl shoes are my absolute favorite, I've had them for years. There's no story for the pink shoes I just thought they were cute. Ever since I was little I always said I was going to wear flip flops at my wedding, so that's exactly what I did!

Officially Husband and Wife

Now that we are married and we have had some time to get settled into our new place, I hope that I can be more consistent with keeping our blog updated. As for now, I have a lot of catching up to do. First on the list of course was our wedding. Dan and I were married on June 13th in the Logan Temple. I would have to say it was the best day of my life. After three years of dating I finally married my best friend. I'm so grateful that we found each other and that we were able to be sealed in the temple for eternity. I've got tons of pictures to share and I've tried to just pick out some of our favorites.

This is one of my new nephews, Isaac. He is so adorable.

This is one of my favorite pictures.

What can I say, girls are expensive.

This is the reception set up in my parents backyard...right before it started downpouring and we had to move everything to the church an hour before the reception was supposed to start. I'm just so grateful that we have such awesome family and friends that were there to help us out...and thank goodness we had a backup place for the reception.

I absolutely loved my cake. Our friend, Crystal, that Dan and I used to work with made it and did such a great job, so if you know of anyone getting married I highly recommend her.

Of course, my uncle Jeff had to show off his shirt before he left. We thought it was hilarious and just had to get a picture with him.

Since one of our favorite desserts is brownies and ice cream we decided to have it at our reception, along with a topping bar. It was so tasty!!!

The Handsome Groomsmen...notice how tall the Durham boys are compared to my brother Jason...haha

The Bridesmaids...I'm so grateful that I have such awesome friends.

I don't know why, but I just like this picture of my brother and his wife.

Although our wedding turned out wonderful, we are both glad that it is over and that we can relax. We also want to thank everyone for all that they have done to make the day special and for showing us all your support.
