Our Week

Today was our first day of "real life". Alex and I got home from San Diego yesterday and had a great week. Paul, my youngest brother got us a couple nights at Jacob Lake in which we were able to go to the north rim of the Grand Canyon...totally awesome!

It was going to be something to the affect of an 8 hour drive from Jacob Lake to San Diego so we opted to stop in Vegas for a day. Wednesday morning we headed out to San Diego where we stayed at the Hilton San Diego Resort which was right on Mission Bay. We had such a nice time and even were able to go to Sea World.
......November 30.....
OK, so I started this sometime last week I think and never got around to finishing it. We finally had our last open house yesterday here in Vegas. Thank you SOOOOO much to Keri and her family for helping out in the kitchen, they were a total life saver. I must say I am glad that all the wedding stuff is done. Now Alex and I just need to sit down and do all of our thank you's.

After nearly a year of being engaged, Alex and I finally were married. Yesterday we kneeled across the altar and were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. It was a beautiful day, nice cool weather, the sun was out and I had the people I loved there to congratulate us.

Thanks to my lovely brother Paul, we get to spend a couple of nights at Jacob Lake which is a cute little place...I think. It was completely dark by the time we got here so not sure what the surrounding area looks like. I do however know that the stars are amazing out here and there are a TON of them. Tomorrow I believe we're going to venture to the grand canyon.
