I had to add "Sunny" to the title, because we have been having the coldest, rainiest Spring EVER and I am sick of it! So I was going to enjoy every second of the sunny, warm weather in Southern California! Brody & I flew to Los Angeles Memorial weekend to see my cousin, Hanalei, get married. It was such a nice wedding.
Austin and Hanalei Gene:)
Isn't she gorgeous? She designed her dress and my Aunt Rachel made it, as she did with mine. We are so lucky to have such a talented Aunt in our family! My pictures don't do it justice, though.
Brody was the lucky one to come with me, and I had a little break from my oldest two, which was very nice. This is Brody's Great-Grandma, Mary. She has 13 kids, 12 of which were able to come (my Aunt that didn't come just had a baby, so I guess that was a good excuse not to come). I think that's pretty good to have 12 of 13 siblings gather at one time. And on this trip, I found out that my Grandma has 76 grandchildren (that's 75 cousins for me, just on one side of the family)! What a legacy! My dad took pictures of everyone at the wedding and of all my aunts and uncles that came and a lot of other pictures, but he didn't realize my camera had been switched to video, so I don't have a lot of the pictures that were taken:( Oh well.
Brody got spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa Perry, because he had their undivided attention.
The Los Angeles Temple is beautiful. I just didn't remember how huge it is! It is even bigger than the Salt Lake Temple. When you are on the temple grounds and you look up at the temple, it is just massive!
We were all tired from the traveling we had to do to get there, but even though Grandpa was taking a nap, Brody wasn't going to have any of that!
It was a quick trip and most of the weekend was spent doing the wedding activities, but you can't go to SoCal without going to the beach!
And this pretty much sums up our trip! A sun-kissed face and absolutely exhausted!
