okay, so we had the opportunity to go to adrienne and clint's wedding, how cute are they? very! it's so amazing, exciting, romantic, fun etc... to see two people so in love who do things the right way! way to go! ian and i had smiles all day, he was so proud of adrienne he said he didn't even know how to express it. i'm so glad that people still do what they know is right even in the midst of so many influences pulling people in different directions; i believe that the decision they made to get married in the temple will make things in their marriage so much easier, i feel like it has truly helped ian and i to be the most happy we could be.
the cake that they had at the reception was one of my favorite wedding cakes i've seen, it tasted good too!
i remember my picture taken on my wedding day with the nieces and nephews, it looked about the same; not everyone can have a smile, what would be the fun in that? adrienne kept her cool pretty well i thought.
it's rare that we get pictures of our whole family anymore so we have to take them every opportunity we get. what a cute family!
we had a lot of fun seeing everyone. the weekend started with the wedding and ended with the blessing of peyton on sunday before everyone headed back home. good times.
all of us that were at the blessing came back for a little breakfast and pictures after, thanks everyone for sticking around.
ian loves his little girl, in case you couldn't tell.

One last picture of the Smith's as 3 Riley was overwhelmed and confused I think about what was going on that day.
Ian loves to snuggle his girls, I think this is by far his favorite way to sleep, he knows their safe.
Riley even cried when she cried, she wanted to be right next to her and make sure she was comfortable and safe.Grandma completly shared our joy in being able to have our little girl with us in our room instead of the NICU, it was an amazing day for all of us, the long wait was over and we were just enjoying our first moments with her.It was no nice to have Janna share our experience with us, what a good Aunt, it's nice to have others who love your kids too! I don't really know how to work the pictures yet but everyone was anxious to welcome Peyton into the family. We know that we were very blessed to have our little girl and have everything go so right with her in the hospital, what a beautiful miracle!
