Labor Day weekend

We had a whirlwind of a weekend! Neil's cousin, Ali, got married at the beginning of August and she and new hubby, Ryan, had a reception on Saturday just outside of Denver, where he is from. Ali's parents and brother naturally came out for the occasion, as well as Neil's brother, Brad, and his girlfriend, Courtney. Lori also joined us from Greeley. It was a quick but fun visit.

Following the reception, a group of us took advantage of the long weekend and drove up near Breckenridge to a cabin owned by a friend of the family. We stayed there Saturday and Sunday night and just got back early this afternoon. Here are some fun pictures from our weekend.

Chloe wore the very same dress that my flower girl, Isabelle, wore on my wedding day six years ago! I've been anxiously awaiting the day Chloe would fit into this dress. And while there's still some growing room, I couldn't resist putting her in it Saturday. She felt like quite the princess.



Chloe thoroughly enjoyed eating rock candy and cheesecake, and smiling for the camera.


With the bride. Ali looked stunning!


Family of 3, very soon to be 4!


Fun Aunt Lori

Thanks for the great weekend, family! Happy Labor Day!

just wanted to check in and see how your family is doing.
looks like a beautiful wedding and you are looking cute with your growing belly.
i take it from the quiz on the side that you aren't finding out what you are having? or do you know?
good luck with everything.

What a fun time! What WONDERFUL pictures!!! Love them all. Chloe is a dream in the beautiful dress beautiful Isabelle wore six years ago. She looks so precious in front of the beautiful wedding backdrop (lights, flowers....all so lovely), and with everyone. Precious girl. You and Neil look so happy too - love your top! And the pictures of your belly with Chloe are precious as are all the other vacation photos. Glad you could get away for a little rest :).

Love you all so...

Chloe is such a doll!! Happy anniversary and birthday! Looks like you guys have been having lots of fun. Oh. BTW - I would give anything to look as cute as you do pregnant! My heavens. I'm usually just a big pregnant blob. :)

How fun to have someone else to share your birthday with! You look darling, and all the pictures are cute! It looks like you were all having so much fun in all of them! Chloe looks just like a little angel in the beautiful white dress Isabelle wore at your reception (and Isabelle looked beautiful in it too)! What a special thing to have Chloe wear it now! I know someone else special who shares your birthday--Elder Robert D. Hales. :)

Love,
Pat
