gratitude sundays (a wedding and a vacation)

So, this one might be strange. We've known for some time now that my little brother was going to be getting married this summer. In fact, we have planned our summer vacation around it. We've just been waiting for it to become official, and about a week ago it did. He gave her the ring, and they just did their engagement pics this weekend. So, congrats to Grant and Aubrye! We are excited to welcome a new sister-in-law and we are grateful that they are getting married in San Diego. Not only do we get to go to a beautiful temple, but it is a great place for a family vacation. We plan to take our kids to the beach, Sea World, and the San Diego Zoo. In fact, most of my immediate family will be extending their trips so we can all enjoy some time together in California. So, while neither the wedding or the vacation has happened yet, I'm grateful to these two kids for giving us a good excuse to plan some good old fashioned family recreation this summer. Congrats again!

Wahoo! Love it when you "have" to take a vacation. You're new sis in law looks beautiful and I'm sure if she's marrying your brother that she is sweet too. Fun for you!

congratulations to your brother and his fiance. How exciting to get to go to California. I haven't been there since my honeymoon. It's beautiful there.
