Papa and some of the grandkids took time to swim at the hotel pool in between wedding festivities.
After the wedding, we decided to drive home by the scenic route. We left Idaho Falls early Sunday morning and drove to West Yellowstone where we attended church with 1000 of our closest friends. Then we drove through the park with Cheri's family and Spencer's sister and her family.
We left Yellowstone and drove through the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole. We wanted to drive back to Provo and go through Star Valley, but the traffic was stopped and we didn't want to wait forever. So over the mountain back to Idaho Falls we went. We got into Provo later than we would have liked, but oh well.
And then the next morning we drove to Pine Valley to spend the day with Michael and Laura's family that were staying at my parents' cabin.
These pictures are so out of order it's ridiculous. But too hard to change them all. So here goes:
On our way home, we stopped in Vegas and picked up Carly, Matthew and Kate. They spent a few days with us before the wedding open house. Michael had to work that week but joined us on Friday night for some more wedding fun that weekend.
One of the days, we went down to Newport Beach and Balboa and went on a boat ride and rode the ferris wheel.
Papa and Tanner
Cheri's family stayed in Yellowstone for a few days and then came to Redondo Beach later on that weekend for the openhouse. We all spent Saturday at the beach. Doin' what we love.
Kate and Sadie
Cheri and Spencer. The funny thing was, before she got on the boogie-board, Tyler was giving her tips on how to do it. Never mind that she spent most of her childhood in the water doing just that.
Matthew and Michael
