We Love Reed's Dairy!

And not just because Tyson's dad is the plant manager over there. We love Reed's Dairy products more than any others. They're wonderful!

After Jordan and Lindsey's reception on Saturday night we went with Amber and Che' to Reed's Dairy for an ice cream cone. I had cookie dough and it was yummy. Tyson's favorite flavor (licorice) wasn't there so he went for mint cookie. Also delicious. We had a great time. While we were there we hung out with the animals in the petting zoo and took some fun pictures.

(As I was looking through the pictures I realized that I didn't take any of Amber. So I borrowed this one from her blog. Thanks, Am!)

The One where Jordan & Lindsey Got Married

Our family's good friends of 22 years, the Bush's, married off their son Jordan yesterday. He married a super cute girl named Lindsey in the Rexburg Temple and we're just so happy for them! It was a nice ceremony. And it was the first temple ceremony I have attended since my own so I was extra excited.
Congratulations, Jordan & Lindsey Bush!

FRIDAY NIGHT: The Dinner
The wedding festivities started off with a dinner catered by Bubba's the night before. It was yummy!

And of course Bill (Jordan's dad) broke out his accordian for a little dancing.

It wouldn't be a Bush party without the chicken dance!

SATURDAY MORNING: The Temple
The wedding was in the Rexburg Temple and it was really nice. I hadn't been in this temple since the open house so it was fun going back.

SATURDAY NIGHT: The Reception
The reception was held at that Bush home in their backyard. It turned out so nice.

The food at the reception was really yummy. There were sandwiches, fruits & veggies, and loads of treats. As you can see, Tyson has a few carrots, some honey dew, and loads of treats ha ha. Big shocker!

I loved their colors: dark red, a dark orange, a dark olive green, and a little bit of yellow. So fun! Their center pieces were realy cute too.

Mom picked out the biggest chocolate strawberry she could find. And probably the biggest one I've ever seen! I had to take a picture of it.

Our good friends Lindsey & Rob. Lindsey is one of the Ingram's, whom our family and Bush's family have also been friends with for about 22 years.

And then it Hailed

Just when we thought things couldn't get worse for our poor flowers, we had ourselves a little storm. Except that it wasn't little at all! Tyson and I were sitting on our computers and heard the rain. So we were watching the rain...and then the hail came...then the nickel-sized hail came. Holy cow! I was just glad we went right home after running our errands. That was quite the storm.
Here are a couple of videos we recorded today. The first is during the storm and how crazy it was outside our front door. The second is what everything looked like after the storm stopped.

It looked like winter!
Tyson was a hero and saved our pot in the back yard.
It was a little painful, but he saved it!

A waterfall


So much water!

That hail just ripped the snap pods apart. Sad!

This is what was coming down our drain pipes. It was so crazy!


Our pots just got destroyed. So much destruction!

I guess our flowers were nice while they lasted. And hopefully they snap out of it a little bit. But it was hard watching the weather come down on them so hard today. It was a little too late by the time we pulled them to shelter. Poor things.
If you experienced this crazy storm, I hope your plants survived!
