Trip to Reno

As stated in a previous post, we went to Reno for a wedding this last weekend. We drove about 24 hours for a day and half trip. Crazy. We don't regret a minute of it though, we had so much fun. We arrived in Fallon Friday night and went to a bbq for the bride and groom . It was so much fun. They have a lot of land and Blake was overjoyed to run around for a straight two hours. We then went to Reno that night and stayed with great friends, the Smiths. 
The next morning we went to the Reno temple for Cody and Avery's sealing. It was the most beautiful sealing I have been part of. We were so happy we made the trip out to see this very special occasion. That evening we went back out to Fallon Blakeless and enjoyed the reception. It was quite peaceful without Blake and Joe and I were able to enjoy each other's company without worrying about chasing Blake around. 
We went to our old ward the next morning and it felt so good to see all the people we love and miss dearly. Right after we left for home. To cut the trips length we stayed in Vegas which was nice. Monday morning we took my mom and grandma out to breakfast at a restaurant I have been wanting to go to. I am a Food Network geek through and through. One of my favorite shows is Divers, Dives and Dine ins. Awhile back they went to a place in Boulder City, NV. Since I saw that, I have wanted to eat there. We finally did on Monday morning. Let me just tell you that The Coffee Cup is an exceptional place to eat. The food is great, the prices right. It's not glamourous at all but oh so nice and cozy. If you are ever in Boulder City or driving through, stop in, you won't regret it. 
As a side note, we did not get to see anybody that we really loved in Reno except for a few people. Since we were technically in Reno for one day, of course we didn't have time. We promise that we will be back through and make time for each person that we love there (that means you if you're in Reno).
After the wedding at the Reno temple.  Blake and Kayla Smith having a blast together. Blake LOVED being at Linda's so much. His favorite activity: calling "Jacob!" At the reception, childless. Can you tell that we're enjoying ourselves.  Kayla thought it would be funny to be strapped in Blake's car seat, crazy girl.  The beautiful couple. We couldn't get an alone shot but this one works. That's her basketball coach from high school. Thought you would care =)
