New Mexico wedding

What a weekend! Aunt Emily (Tyler's  sister) got hitched this weekend in New Mexico. We were going to leave on Thursday but I came down w/ that stomach bug that makes you wish you were dead. So we didn't even know if we were going to make it.Fortunatley, for me Tyler was home on Thursday and took over. He took care of the kids, he made breakfast,lunch and dinner for the kids, folded A LOT of laundry, packed , cleaned out my car and took care of me! Seriously, I don't know what I would've done w/o him. He's truly the best!
 So we left on Friday to New Mexico. The kids traveled well, and we made pretty good time. We had a great time with all of  the Atkin family (except Rich and Mary). Saturday was the wedding at the Albuquerque temple. Emily looked beautiful and happy. The sealer did a wonderful job. Then we had a lunch for all the family. The reception was beautiful. There is something about a beautiful back yard reception w/ little white tents all over the place!  Also at the reception was a pretty Lily pond that all the kids thought was fascinating, and just couldn't leave it alone! so guess who's kid  gives into the temptation and the council of wise parents and decides to get all wet and smells like like a swamp! If you guessed my Walker, then you are correct! However, all the other cousins were dirty as well. But that was our Que it was time to go! The kids a great time swimming w/ grandpa at the pool, and they love being with their cousins and grandparents.
