This was one of the prettiest weddings I have ever been to...the ceremony was at a beautiful church in Dallas....huge stained glass windows, 50 foot ceilings, and stone walls, etc. The place was beautiful. The preacher had a lot of funny things to say although I am not sure he was trying to be funny as much as we just thought the things he said were funny! The reception was located at Winfrey Point...it's a reception house on a cliff that overlooks a lake. GORGEOUS!!! There were also a lot of really cute details that Christina implemented that I had never seen at a wedding before. The Bride's cake was a chocolate masterpiece made by some guy from the food network, very cool. Outside on the patio you could get lemonade, sangria, or tea out of these really cool glass pitchers, and there were several different types of cigars available for the gentlemen or adventurous ladies to smoke on the other side of the porch. Last but not least...there was DANCING!! With Christina I expected nothing less, but everyone was on the dance floor having a good time. It was really nice getting to see all of our college friends, and getting to see people we haven't seen in a long time. At the end of the night we were talking to all of the single/dating people and trying to decide who should get married next so that we can have another party! Overall, it was a really fun night, and Brad and I are so happy for Christina and Dustin!!!

On Labor Day Brad and I went down to Matagorda Bay with some family and friends. I hadn't been to Matagorda Beach since I was in elementary school so I was really surprised by how pretty and clean the beach was. We set up a canopy tent and chairs, and everyone played in the water and looked for sea shells. We all brought stuff for a picnic lunch, and I don't know how but sandwiches always seem to taste better outside. After lunch while Brad took a nap (big surprise), I made sand castles and buried people in the sand with the little kids. It was an awesome day! We could not have asked for better weather or a nicer place for our picnic and fun. We will definitely have to plan more trips down to Matagorda in the future. It would even be a nice place to take pictures!

I didn't realize until I was looking back at old posts that I haven't put any pictures of Sasha up since we first got her. Oh My Goodness has she changed. No longer is she the two pound little ball of fluff that she once was. Now she is tall and lanky...still very fluffy, but much taller...I think she weighs almost ten pounds now!! (this can mostly be blamed on my mom for giving her treats and people food all the time) She is still small enough to carry around and sit on your lap, but I don't think I will be sticking her in my purse and taking her to Wal-Mart any time soon. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!
Laying in one of my suitcases as I tried to pack to go somewhere...such a big help!
Christopher giving Sasha kisses....usually we have to watch her around babies...but in this case he was definitely the aggressor!

Brad finally got to come home after being gone working in Yorktown for almost two weeks so I was SUPER EXCITED for him to be home. He got Thursday, Friday, and Monday off for Labor Day so we decided to break the weekend in half and go visit some family. We went to Austin to visit his grandparents and as always that was really fun! They really take good care of us when we visit there....lots of good food, games and snacks the whole time. On Friday, we drove down to Marble Falls for the afternoon and went jet skiing with C.J. and Fallon. Afterwards, they came back to Cedar Park with us so we got to spend the evening and all of Saturday with CHRISTOPHER!! It was really fun getting to play with him...I even got to take some pictures of him while he was full and happy (you can see those by going to my other blog http://www.lrbphotography.blogspot.com/). AND not to be forgotten (this is going to be really nerdy so brace yourself) we got to go to Half Price Books and they were having a Labor Day Sale!!! 20% off!!! I got like 24 books and a bag for less than 50 dollars!! I was really excited. Brad found a "Learn Spanish" series that he can listen to in the car so he was pretty happy too! Sadly, we had to leave on Saturday because we had to be back for Youth Sunday...it would have been fun to get to stay longer! Here is a picture from when Brad and I were playing pick-a-boo with Christopher...LOOK at that SMILE!!
