Love is in the air

We headed down to CA for a quick trip to celebrate the wedding of Jenna and Austin!  
 But first this week, I started basketball which is pretty fun.
 Grace was goofin' with her friend at after care
We did miss a day of school and flew down to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  We always love visiting.  Our first day, we did have to get up crazy early, so we took it easy, saw a great Movie, Born in China, which was a beautiful way to celebrate Earth Day. Had a great afternoon relaxing a bit (and eating ice-cream).   It was perfect weather, sunny, warm, and great for hanging out at Vintage days at Fresno State.
Our most exciting was the giant hamster balls that Grace and I got to race in.

They were a little warm, but Awesome!

After we got everyone cleaned up in the afternoon, we got ready to go to the wedding.
 It was at a cool ranch right on the San Joaquin River.  We saw a lot of our Christmas friends, which seemed unseasonal in April, but so great to catch up with them and visit in a new context!
 There was the river, lots of open space and lots of trees to run around for us!  The ceremony was so beautiful, just perfect.  Harry presided (which came with a lot of poignant laughs) and they couple wrote their own vows and they were just right.

 Grandma photobombed my selfie, it's our favorite picture of the evening!

 We got a quick picture opportunity with the happy couple, I took the picture myself!

 Grace was a beast on the dance floor with a pretty impressive robot that she could make work for any song.
 She went strong for the entire rest of the evening, and when it was time to go, she crashed before leaving the driveway!
 Grandpa Tom got Mrs. Mayeda (a retired ballroom dancer) out on the dance floor to cut a rug as well.
In exchange for a little bit of phone-time after a long evening, I even danced a whole dance (who knew three minutes could be so long) with Mom! 
 We are so honored to be able to celebrate with these wonderful friends who are family.  Thank you for letting us be included as witness, to surround you with our love as you begin this part of your lives together!  We wish you joy and the very best this world offers Austin and Jenna!!
