On Friday we just ran errands. I went with Donna to get a dress for the wedding. She didn't like the ones she had made. Then that night Jolenes husband Ji came in from New Mexico.
That night was the wedding dinner with both families. John and Micah had it catered from Joes Real BBQ and from Waldos BBQ. They liked the meat better from Waldos and the sides better from Joes. So it was the best of the two best BBQ places in town. Kathryn got to meet one of Micah's little neices. They are only one month apart. THey had fun Friday night and then again on Saturday at the reception.
Saturday was the wedding day. It took place at the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple. It was a great wedding. The sealer did an amazing job. He said two things that I thought were the best advice for any couple.
1. Stay away from Sin, Run away from it
2. Never Neglect your spouse
Afterwards we took some pictures and then ate left over BBQ and played some pool at Ben's house. The Open house was at a previous bishoprics house over on the south side of South Mountain. It was a very lovely home and a beautiful backyard. Kathryn loved eating the rocks. She was the hit of the show, well besides the bride! Micah was beautiful. They looked so happy. After the Open house the rest of Matt's brothers and sisters went to dinner for some Mexican. It was a really nice evening except for my shoes which as soon as I got home took them off and put them in my DI bag.
Jolene and Ji left Saturday night, Steve Flew out on Sunday Morning early, Ted, Maryann and the Parents stayed for church. Ted stayed until Monday Morning. That was fun having him there to visit a little more then just wedding talk. I fixed him Curry and he thought it was great. I had to show him that I can cook cause when we were at his house last fall his wife Hisako showed me up! She is the most amazing cook and its like that every night. No meal is off the cuff.
Overall it was a great weekend. Lots of people in the house and good times.
John and Micah are now on their Honeymoon Cruise to Mexico in the Gulf of Mexico. They'll be back this weekend and then they have their Reception in Snowflake the 8th. We'll join them in those festivities as well!
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY MICAH PARKINSON WEIR!!!
