Family Reunion: The Everests

At the end of August, I traveled to Southern Cali for my cousin Brian's wedding. He and his new wife, Sarah, were married under a thousand year old oak tree in the foothills of the San Bernadino Mountains. It was this amazing spot that seemed lost in time. A once thriving resort, often visited by Albert Einstein in it's hay day, now seems a bit tired and lonely. However, everywhere you looked you could see such rich history and I could easily imagine how grand things used to be. The old dining hall was still decorated as if transported right out of the early 1900's. I was in love. I wish I had taken more pictures of the place, but we were only there for one night. But I diverge...

The wedding was beautiful. Sarah has great taste and I think, had I gotten married this summer, I would have wanted my wedding to look just like theirs. But, I will let you see for yourself.

The Happy Couple

My favorite part though, was spending time with my family. I got some great pictures, but I do want to put in a disclaimer (since it is my blog) that rain and my hair do not mix. If you remember the episode from Friends where Monica braids her hair in a hundred braids because it gets so frizzy and everyone is scared of it... yeah that's kind of how I felt since it randomly decided to rain in the desert. Although, my husband says I do have a tendency to exaggerate, but I have no idea what he is talking about.

Just Because

I thought this picture was adorable. My kids love their aunt Ea.

Our Summer via Instagram Photo-Strips

Gotta love technology. This summer I discovered the wonders of Instagram. Couple that with an idea I found on Pinterest and you have the follow post: The Mogfords summer of 2012.

An updated... Squirrel... blog post

I know I need to update the blog, and I have plenty to blog about, but every time I sit down to write I get ADD, and nothing gets blogged about at all. So here is my attempt despite my ordering a coffee today and forgetting to ask for decaf. And for those of you who don't watch children's movies all the time, the title is a reference to UP.

Little peak at our new addition

My beautiful sister and gorgeous daughter helped me make this picture way more interesting.

Below is a picture of the entire Everest family taken at my cousin Brian's wedding (minus a couple spouses, and Jonathan who was busy with football practice). Brian's new wife was beautiful and their wedding was gorgeous, but more on that later.

For the next topic, we jump to some incredible Halloween costumes that Joe's aunt Patsy made for the kids.  Did I mention she made these?


This was the best picture I got of the two of them. Owen was ready for a nap and done with taking pictures.
