Arizona Trip and Dad's Wedding

We flew to Arizona on Feb. 27th for my Dad's wedding on the 28th. My dad and Pam have been together for 10 years and finally decided it was time.

I had wanted a carseat roller ever since I saw someone have one so I had been on the look out for a second hand one and I was lucky enough to find one at a consignment sell they do twice a year. It was so nice to have to carry Ellie or her carseat through the airport. 

Ellie was SO excited to go on an airplane. She couldn't stop talking about it. She has been on planes many times before but this time she obviously understood more of what was going on and where we were headed.

The flight went smoothly but flying into Phx was a little bumpy and made me nauseous and hot. Yuck. Oh and when we took off Ellie was looking out the window and turns to James and says, "My tummy" and laughs. Gave us a good laugh. She probably had that roller coaster feeling in her tummy.

We didn't have a lot of time before we had to head to the rehearsal so we met Cassidy at my mom's house, had a snack and headed out. Dinner was at my dad's and we had mexican food. I was so excited. I've been telling James for awhile that I was craving restaurant style mexican food. So it hit the spot and made me look a little large in the tummy after that! Food baby+baby!!

Ellie had so much fun playing with her cousin Camden. I've mentioned before how their only a little over a month apart. They were running and jumping around and play screaming (which was cute but annoying at the same time). Glad they were able to entertain themselves though.

A few pictures to come...maybe

The next day we mostly hung out and then got ready to go. 
We were asked to wear a purple dress of some sort. I found mine at target and felt the waistline was high enough for comfort. And I found it on clearance. Bonus. I found Ellie's dress at Carter's and the two dresses ended up being the exact same color. Cassidy was having a hard time finding a dress but I picked hers out off and it fit so yay.
I wasn't sure if it would be cold or not so I bought us sweaters just in case and then thought man if 60ish degrees in Idaho is hot to me 75 degrees is going to kill me. But the day was overcast and once the wedding was over and everyone was inside it started to rain. So, I'm glad I bought sweaters. 
Ultimate fail. I didn't take a single picture at the rehearsal or wedding. There was a photographer and a few other people had their cameras out so it was my cop out I guess.

Here are some photos from the Photographer, Chip Keeler.

 It was a good wedding. It was fun seeing people I haven't seen in years and introducing them to my sweet Ellie. She was such a good girl. A little shy but she was so well behaved.

On Sunday we headed over to my Grandparents house for lunch and to say hello. We took a generational picture...

Check out this rocking bed head Ellie woke up with one morning.

On Monday James and I rented a car and drove to New Mexico...
