San Francisco Wedding

This handsome couple is officially married. The wedding doubled as a great excuse for a family trip to San Francisco. (Hint hint, Craig, I think you should try to marry someone from Europe-- so we can go back.)We spent time with Aisling's family the day before the wedding. We met at the Oakland Temple. (I almost made Bryan late for Aisling's endowment session when we missed an exit, but we made it JUST in time.)

After the session, everyone met at Italian Colors to visit over a good dinner.

We threw the resturant for a loop when everyone ordered the same thing. It took them longer than expected to prepare, so they brought out free pizza and calamari as appetizers. (Emily is trying to prop up the pizza wih her fork.)

After dinner I (finally) got to go pick-up Kelly from the airport. Vacation is not as fun if he doesn't get to enjoy it with me!

The wedding was beautiful. Attending a wedding is always a good reminder, but this time the experience was especially poingant. I felt so blessed to be part of an eternal family. Particularlly the family of Kara and Kelly Peterson! The blessings we receive through the eternal covenants we've made FAR exceed our comprehension.

A beaming new bride! She is so beautiful.

This is my favorite picture of the bride and groom. --A wedding from the perspective of a toddler. Caleb is deeply absorbed in his animal crackers.

Sisters. Those of us that were not bridesmaids (our married status disqualifies us as 'maids'), recyled the matching skirts from my wedding. They were a perfect match to the rest of the wedding.
Kelly looks great, sporting his new suit and tie.

We had an especially long photo session, which turned into a fun time to observe my nieces and nephews playing together.

Kylee and Caleb. This isn't a great picture of it, but Leslie made the darling bowties for Caleb and Eli.

Madelyn, Evelyn and Kylee enjoying being together.

Yes, running on the temple grounds.

Kelly and I forgot our camera on Day 3, so this is the end of the photo journalism. Don't feel any obligation to keep reading!
For the record. . .

- Jeni and I went thrift shoping in the morning and saw LOTS of laundries.
- We met the family at Golden Gate Park, after trying to park for nearly an hour!
- Suzie, Kelly and I found lunch and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge.
- We met the family at Muir Woods and went for a gorgeous hike. Dad accidently paid for Bryan and Aisling, who were on their honeymoon!
- Dad took us to Il Fornio for dinner. I know it's a luxury, but I REALLY LOVE a fancy dinner.

- We went to sacrament meeting in San Ramon and enjoyed being part of a "family" with the Gaskin kids at church.
- Kelly and I crammed in a few last activities. We went to the De Young Museum, drove past the Piers, got lunch at the Ferry Building and hit the airport.
