So much for not being cheesy!
On the drive between Phoenix and Vegas, where we stopped at Darcy and Lianna's for a night.
I will never stop laughing.
We dug through Lianna's old pictures and found some gems. Me at Girl's Camp.
Michelle, Christa, my eyes. There's another one we found that made me start screaming uncontrollably. It's reserved for a future blog post. (You will die.)
The drive between Vegas and Reno is the saddest stretch of road I've ever seen. Brothels, barren landscape, and a garbage town every 100 miles. We had no choice but to stop at this alien center to pee, and I didn't realize until I walked in the front door that it's internally connected to that pink whorehouse out back. On our return trip the words "Good, cuz I don't wanna have to stop at the alien whorehouse again" were uttered. Quote of the trip.
My old house!
The Yosemite fire is blanketing the entire Carson area in smoke, hence the haziness of the above photo. The night before the wedding, Jon was complaining to Christa's dad that we couldn't hardly even see the mountains. George replied, "Give it ten minutes." Ten minutes later...
Everyone said it was the first time they'd seen blue sky in 12 days.
Barbecue in Minden Park the night before the wedding.
We got a sneak peek of the reception hall that night. It was Christa's first viewing, as well. I love this picture of her joyfully taking it all in.
The morning of the wedding. Thanks for the clear conditions and blue skies, George (and Jesus)! The very next morning, the smoke returned.
Okay, photo overload ahead.
The reaction of the groom's mom, niece, and nephew to the far right of this picture made me tear up when I noticed it.
Immediately calling out for her little sister, who wasn't in the temple for the ceremony.
I threatened the entire weekend to steal that little redheaded girl.
Favorite. Look at her dad in the temple doorway.
Classic Christa (luncheon directly after the ceremony)
At the reception
First dance, serenaded by her dad
Garrett and Christa, the happy couple
"Now take a candid picture of us dancing!"
Then it was over :( We stopped in Vegas again on our way back. Jon playing dolls with Pearl. (Notice something on the wall?)
