my little sister’s wedding took place on saturday, and it was just beautiful! i am such an emotional crazy person at any wedding, but when one of my little siblings gets married, it’s like x100. it’s a funny thing, but i feel like the year i left home for college is the year time stopped in my head when it comes to my brother and my sisters and i still think of them as that age, in that time period. so seeing them grow up and do adult things and not be little any more, just feels so strange. my little brother, isaac, drove me around in his car tonight, and that was weird! how is he old enough to drive and date and talk about college and be taller than me! how does he know the ins and outs of snapchat better than i do to the point where he’s telling and teaching me about it?
but time aside, i have an immense amount of pride for each of my siblings. and as they grow and accomplish things and follow their dreams and figure out what makes them happy and what they want from life, i just beam with pride. because they are good people, and while we have had our share of difficult sibling moments over the years where lots of mean words and attitude and drama were maybe present (oh family!), at the end of the day, and especially as the years have gone by, we will always be there for each other, and i couldn’t love them more.
here are a couple of photos from the past few days…. a few of them are screenshot from video i took for my sister, so they aren’t as crisp as i’d like them to be, but you get the gist. ;)
here’s a photo from the night before the wedding of my own grown up miss eleanor with the bride to be, her aunty hannah!
with their great-grandpa! and below, four generations (these sorts of photos always get me! because beyond being emotional in general, i hope they will be cherished someday like the old photos i cherish of several generations from the past posed together from when i was a little girl.)
a happy girl with her uncle! i think every day in the mountains needs to be spent outside during sunset because it feels like such a gift.
this little dude has requested his superman shirt every day this week! (i’ve been trying to wash it at night to keep him happy. it’s worth it just for the reaction each morning when he remembers he’s “superman!” and runs to put on his shirt! when he takes it off at night, he reminds me that he is samson again!) it is from zara, by the way!
this photo is from last night in the park! 4 of the 5 of us siblings! hannah and ryan are already off on their honeymoon now!
a photo from the wedding party on saturday! hannah got a dried bouquet and flower crown so she could preserve them and i think that it probably the most genius thing i have heard. i couldn’t get over them!
and this sweet little flower girl looked so cute all day long! her dress was a gift from doloris petunia and she and i both are obsessed with it.
love this shot of them after cutting and feeding each other cake! or i guess this is a shot of them kissing, but it’s during the whole cake thing. you know what i meant!
the send off! congratulations guys! welcome to the family, ryan! we are so so happy for you both!
and we get to spend a few more days in utah with the rest of our family, so we can’t find a thing to complain about. :) have a wonderful week, friends!
