Wedding Adventures

Last week Brian and I drove to Vegas for my brother's wedding. Depending on the time of day you looked at the map, the driving times ranged from 8.5 hours to 9 hours and 45 minutes. We left right smack dab in the middle of rush hour so we were graced with the longer time.  It was OK though because I had my driving slippers on.

We arrived in Vegas at about 2:30 am.  I forgot how cool all the Vegas lights look at night.

The next day was the big day!! I don't think anyone thought Rusty would ever get married. He went and proved all of us wrong though!

It was a very simple and easy wedding.  Everyone met up at the park and as soon as everyone was there they got started.

The guy that married them said some nice things about marriage.

They exchanged the rings.

Gave each other a smooch

And just like that I have a new sister, three nephews and one niece!!

In order to be less "city" my mom let me wear her boots so I could "fit in" with my brothers! =D

After it was all over we went out to eat at the Luxor.

The little girls had some chopsticks and Brian and I tried to show them how to eat with them.  So of course Hunter had to try.

He just ended up stabbing the bread which was much easier!

After dinner we all went our separate ways and I found my Safari hat!!

I told Brian I had two dreams in my life 1) to own a real legit safari hat and 2) to own a real legit park ranger hat.  One of my dreams came true!! The store was going out of business and my regularly $50 hat was now on sale for $15.  Brian told me there was no way I could pass up that deal and I'm so glad I didn't.  I wore it the rest of the night!  This hat will now be accompanying us on all our adventures.

On the way home we were both kind of sick of the car so we made a little stop at some roadside attraction.

There was shooting

A petting zoo

And lots of birds

Brian tried to make me take a picture with the stupid chickens but every time I would get close they would make their stupid squawking noise and lean closer to my face.

This one was giving me the evil eye and I just knew it was going to peck my eyeballs out so I tried to hide behind the food thing.

It was fun being able to spend some time with my family and I am very excited to have a new sister! I have been very lucky in the sister-in-law department!

Congratulations Rusty and Kelly! Love you guys!
