This past weekend, the last of our little Kansas/Military group of friends got married. This is where the lame part comes in....I don't have ONE picture of the bride! Kara looked SO beautiful too! I We did some quick pictures at the beginning of the reception, and then we got too busy talking and I missed so many pictures! I also didn't get any of Jill and her cute kids. The wedding was so much fun. Growing up in the military we all moved every couple years or so. We lived in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas for three years. At this point in my life three years seems pretty short! However, the friends I made in Kansas still remain like family to me. Whenever we get together, it is like time has not passed and I can't help but feel the love. Seriously, these people are my favorite people in the whole world.
How cute is this couple? Everytime we see Matt we mention how lucky he was to find and snatch up Brooke. Matt is looking so dapper and about to become a distinguished surgeon. Brooke is now a mother of four, a photographer and fitness expert.
Everytime I see Sarah I forget how beautiful she is! (I also cry that I don't live closer so she can do my hair.) Her and hubby Ryan are now the proud parents of FOUR boys! Sarah, did you ever think we would both have four boys? Who knew?
Sister and Brother Caldwell.....Sister Caldwell=amazing seminary teacher.. Everytime I see her I think she should be wearing this little wooden necklace with a sun on it. She would wear it every morning when teaching seminary with a cheery smile on her face. (At 6AM!) She taught us the Old Testament and we love her. She has not even aged!
Sarah and Lisa-love these girls!
I really wish I had gotten a better picture of Eric. (Big Brother of the bride) He was so busy being the "Wedding Entertainer" that I could not even get a better pic. Seriously, anyone in Alaska, if you want a FUN wedding, this is your man. He was like a DJ/Wedding Singer/Dance Instructor. He is so good at this, I think this is his calling in life. I told him he should be a zumba instructor. He was like "Left foot, stomp, right foot, stomp, quarter-turn, shake...." He looks just the same as High School, minus the big rugby shirts and pleated pants. It was so fun seeing Eric after like 10 or so years!
Ahhh...the Lamonties. These guys have not aged either. I just love these two.
Me, Eric, Matt, and Heidi
Ahh....Matt and Ryan (other brother-of-the-bride) Nice beards, guys.
Some of the parents of all of us crazy kids.
I don't know if it was just that I was so young, but I never remembered how tiny these ladies are! They are little miniatures. (What are you guys? like 4ft) Even though they are so small, as my Young Women's Presdent, and Seminary Teacher...they had big influences!
On first look, this is a picture of my sister, Heidi, my Mom and I. On closer examination, it is a hilarious picture of Matt trying to be a wierdo in the background. So funny. Matt still makes me laugh so hard! All he has to do is say one word or give a look and I am cracking up.
Thanks for the fun memories friends! Kara, you had a beautiful wedding. Sorry to all those I missed in the pictures. We missed all the friends that could not be there...Palmers, the other Lamonts, and Adams, everyone from Leavenworth. Now that we have no weddings in the near future, we are just going to have to make up a reason for a reunion.
