... HeRe CoMeS tHe BrIdE ...

So over the weekend, Skylar and I made another trip to Boise to attend a wedding for a very good family friend. We left on Friday afternoon and made our lllooonnnggg.. and I mean long... trip west. Just after Twin Falls it started snowing... and then it started blizzarding!! It was crazy!
And it slowed traffic down to the extreme. But when we dropped into Boise, it was gone, and it was only rain! It was much better.
After the long awaited arrival of getting to our destination, we checked in to our hotel and headed to meet up with his uncle in Eagle. We then made our way back to downtown Boise to the Qwest Arena for a basketball game between the Idaho Stampede and the Los Angeles D-Fenders. They are just a step below the NBA.. and they aren't too bad. In fact... One of the players from the Idaho Stampede is now playing for the Utah Jazz and is doing an outstanding job! So that was something new and exciting for us to do!
Then, on Saturday- we pretty much wasted the day away until the wedding. We did have an easter egg hunt with his cousins and that was about it. Then came the wedding. It was at the WoodRiver Cellars in Eagle. And it was a beautiful location to have a wedding. The bride was and absolute princess, and the bridesmaids and flower girls looked fabulous, and lets not forget the groom and the groomsmen- they looked stunning as well. It was a little bit different of a wedding than from what I'm used to, but it was good culture for all of us, and we enjoyed every second of it..
I'm pretty sure we were the only ones not drinking any of the 6 cases of wine and 2 kegs of beer that they had for the reception/dinner part of the wedding. It was interesting and fun at the same time to watch the different types of people that attended this wedding. It was absolutely gorgeous and everybody was happy. I'm glad we were able to attend the ceremony. You could definately feel the love the bride and groom had for each other. Then we came home on Sunday, and the drive home was much better then on the way there. It was a great Easter Weekend, and we enjoyed listening to Conference while we were gone
We love going on mini vacations, but we also enjoy coming home.
