Here are some pictures we took at the temple...
It was blazing hot outside, so when the ice cream truck drove by we all bought some ice cream... even the bride & groom! What a fun picture!Maddie loved the ice cream too!The reception was at a beautiful house in Chandler. Maddie enjoyed the pool while we set up decorations. She had so much fun with her Uncle Bennett.
A quick family picture from the reception.
These pictures are from the rest of the weekend... Maddie loves to snuggle her face and roll around in our bed. She likes to be stacked in with all the pillows and break out of them.And Maddie's favorite... playing with water in her high chair!We had so much fun visiting with family over the weekend. We love you all & we are so glad you all were able to come! We miss you already!

Maddie got to go wakesurfing!She wasn't totally excited to be out there, but she wasn't completely terrified either. Brandon did a good job keeping her out of the water. When he let go of the rope, he held her high over his head so she didn't have to be in the cold water. What a great daddy! **UPDATE- I forgot the funniest thing about Maddie's wakesurfing adventure! Look in her right hand... she is holding a Cheerio. She would not let it go. She held onto it the whole time she was out there and then ate it when she got back in the boat. She is so silly.**
Here is Maddie & her dad driving the boat. She liked to honk the horn. I love the sunset in the background of this picture. We are so lucky to live so close to Canyon Lake - it is so beautiful!
While I was home, I made strawberry/blueberry jam and homemade bread with my friend Kristy. Everything turned out so yummy - it's always an exciting thing when the bread rises.
Here is Maddie and her Uncle Derrick playing the guitar.The last part of the week, we met my family at Lake Havasu. It was fun to see everyone, but it was blazing hot and the water was super choppy - not good for wakeboarding. My poor Maddie got sunblock in her eyes and she was so hot. She was much happier at the air conditioned hotel eating Cheerios.
We still had a fun time with everyone and we are glad we went. I think we'll wait until Maddie is a little older before we go back.
We are excited to see family this weekend for Laura's wedding!
