Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and we're still in the clouds,
I'd love to get caught up with a few things on here but we're taking off for Europe tomorrow, so the blog will have to wait! We're spending a few weeks touring Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy and France. Plenty of pictures sure to come :-)
In the meantime, check out our first family picture! For a little date this week, we played with the talented Jessica Kettle and her camera at Wheeler Farm. Jess posted a lttle sneak peek on her blog here.
See you next month!

After 2 1/2 years together, I still can't get enough of him. I sure love that man.
We're getting married on Tuesday, you know.

One of the elite athletes said he'd kill his girlfriend if she ever showed up with a sign like that. Good thing Matt loves me. Besides, I think it helped! Matt had a few solid races, including a PR in the 100-meter dash. He ran a 10.7 against the wind! They'd just had a false start called back after 4 seconds with little recovery time, so Matt started a bit slower than he would've liked. But watch him catch up to take second in his heat! (He took 8th overall out of 80-something elites, D1's, etc.) The guy in the yellow who wins it is an Olympian who ran for Great Britain in Beijing.
Doesn't it seem like that video is in fast forward?? Yeah, it's not.
After about an hour, Matt ran the 200M, followed by the 4x400M relay an hour after that. He ran the third leg this time around and Air Force was behind when he got the baton... but they didn't stay behind for long :-)
Such a beautiful day for a track meet.
Then, after successfully completing our 6+ hour transformation into wet dogs, we cleaned up and celebrated
with buffalo burgers at our beloved Ted's Montana Grill at Briargate.
We're headed to Laramie this week for the MWC Track Championships. Go Falcons!

Boy 1: But how can ours be better?
Boy 2: A pinata!
Girl: And sombreros.
Boy 3: But how will they know that ours is better?
Boy 1: We'll break the pinata outside of their windows so they can watch us having more fun than them.
But, our building is new and therefore has no trees from which to hang a pinata. We toyed with the idea of having someone hold it for awhile before coming up with the ingenious idea to just pitch the chile pinata with the batter's eyes closed.
All in front of the customer service windows, of course. Observe (push play):

We had a lovely time in Southern California. Again.
It was especially nice knowing that we'll get to call this place home in just a few short months. A few highlights from our weekend (which was actually a couple weekends ago):
Barefoot walk on the beach at sunset...
A 7,000-calorie Nutella Banana crepe from our beloved Cafe Crepe in Santa Monica...
A visit to Downtown Disney...
Grabbing dessert at ESPNZone in Anaheim...
And - of course - seeing the sun, visiting the Hunts, driving by our future home, staying at the Hotel Kerr, chowing down at In-N-Out, sitting in horrendous traffic for two hours and therefore missing Sprinkles Cupcakes by five minutes, getting free dinner at Olive Garden, eating Susie's bacon waffles, and spending time with some of our favorite people.
Yeah, we could definitely get used to this.
Minus the traffic, that is.

Most recently, Christian (15) lucked out and got to go to Six Flags Magic Mountain with me. Matt had a track meet in LA on the 18th, so I took Christian out early to get some serious roller coaster riding in. We soon discovered that the only problem with taking your 6-foot-tall little brother on a "date" is that other people end up thinking you're actually dating (e.g. the photographer who told us to kiss for a picture?!). I really hope I don't look young enough to be dating a fifteen-year-old.

I love him, you know?
A HUGE thanks to McKenzie Deakins for being such an amazing photographer.
And that, friends, marks the end of our engagement pictures recap. Hope you enjoyed!

Next, we changed in our little portable closet (suburbans with the back seat taken out and deeply-tinted windows, anyone?) and headed up to Utah's own Capitol Hill for some classic shots with my soldier.
Next: Last but not least, casual pictures at the Great Salt Lake.

So, Matt brought out his favorite suit, my mom sewed me a pretty dress (they just don't make modest dresses for tall girls), and we started our engagement session at Salt Lake's City Hall and The Exchange Place. Here's a little sampling of all the great pictures McKenzie took at those locations (I'll post the others separately). You'll have to be watching your mailbox to see our favorite picture from this series, though :-)
Next up: My man in uniform.
