The day before Abby and Tyler's wedding, we did a session in the temple as a family. That's always such a great experience. We left Diddles and all of the other girl cousins with Bethany and Tyler's sisters and headed to the temple. I passed my recommend over to the Brother at the recommend desk and he said, "So, coming to the temple all the way from Washington, are you?" (scans my recommend under the scanner, scowls) "No...you are not." My recommend had EXPIRED seven days ago! I had just been to the temple in June, so I didn't even think to check if it had expired! Talk about one of the worst feelings in the world, having an expired recommend is one of them. I felt like a total dope. They called our dear Bishop at 6am, and got everything worked out. He even said, "Tell her I still like her." I would HATE me! :) I got a temporary recommend for that session and to be able to witness the wedding the next day. Needless to say it's on the top of my "to do" list for this week, right after baking Bishop some cookies to apologize!
That evening, Josh and Bethany took Abby and Tyler to shoot some pictures so they didn't have to spend so much time following their wedding to ((smile))! Josh felt so much pressure in being THE wedding photographer, but I thought he did a great job, don't you? Granted, it's not too hard with such a beautiful couple, and an awesome lens, but Josh definitely has some skills.

Following the wedding, we had a luncheon, where Abby performed a few songs, one with her missionary companion, and a song that she wrote for Tyler while she was in China.
Did I ever tell you that Josh surprised me with our honeymoon location when we got married? The day after our wedding, he announced that we were going to San Francisco, and that we were DRIVING there. I burst into tears, and they weren't tears of joy! He went out and bought us plane tickets, the dear boy. I guess not everyone could say they traveled through space and time on their anniversary (a plane ride and one hour time difference)!
