Karie Got Married

The Temple they got married in

So Brett's sister Karie got married last weekend. It was so fun to be able to go. She got married Friday Morning in the Washington DC LDS Temple. We drove up Thursday night. Then Friday after the weeding and luncheon we drove back down to Fayetteville to get rested up for the Reception. I helped out getting all of the food ready. We had a Chocolate Fountain, Cheese Fondue, Spinach Dip, Fruits, Vegetables, Bread (for dipping), Chicken wings, meatballs and Potato Salad. So it took some preparing. The Reception brought back a ton of memories from Brett and I's wedding since the yard was set up the same way. It had the typical end to a Shurtleff Wedding Reception. The bride got pushed in the pool. That's right dress and all. Karie's new husband Ryan got word that she was going to push him in. So he grabbed her clothes and all ran and jumped in. All would have been fine if he hadn't had her cell phone in his pocket :). Well within a few minutes all the brides maids and groomsman were all in the pool. So Brett's Mom and Ryan's Mom decided they should join and ran and jumped in Clothes and all. HAHA It was a great night. After cleaning up a bit we drove home getting us home about 12:30. Lots of driving, but a good weekend. So Tomorrow we are off again. Karie and Ryan couldn't take their whole Honeymoon since they needed to get to a Open House. So Brett and I decided to be nice (haha) and help them out by finishing up their time for them. We are taking down a couple of friends with us too so it should be a good time. I will be sure to post about that next week.

Karie with all the grandkids

Those are all of the grandkids?? Whoa. You and Brett have a lot of grandkid making to do if you're going to contribute to that bunch. :o) The part where everyone jumped into the pool was hilarious. Did that happen to you at your reception?
