Week after we got married: HONEYMOON IN CABO SAN LUCAS
Sitting at our resort pool chairs.
We went to my house for a week in Spokane and had a great time. Here we spent lots of time on the lake and getting ready for reception #2 in my backyard. It was fun to have absolutely nothing on our schedules and to spend time with both our families at once. Thanks again to the Lewis/Milne families for driving up, and to my family for the amazing reception and more! We are so blessed with such amazing families.
So one morning in Spokane this is the creepy face I woke up to. Russ had woken up at 6 am on his own and shaved his beard to this little number. When I woke up a little later he found my reaction to his mustache quite amusing. It's OK if you think it's creepy and disturbing... I do too.
We spent the weekend at a rental house on Long Lake. It was so fun lounging around with family and getting those early morning water skiing runs on pure glass in. Here I am with Marcella and Anthony Milne.
Boat times. We love boat times.
Sounds dramatic, I know. But it actually was. Russ and I have both spent the last 5 or 6 years of our lives in Utah making close friends and being near our families. As much as we were excited to get out and have our own adventures, we were still sad to leave our families and close friends. We said so many goodbyes...
Goodbyes to bikes... I know, I was just as shocked as you. But Russ sold his second love (Jamie the mountain bike) to his good friend Dane since Texas lacks in extreme mountainous trails. It truly was just as heart wrenching.
Goodbyes to family... I will miss being down the street from my big sis and her husband. It has been fun becoming best friends with my sister.
Goodbye to my hair! I chopped it. I did the deed in anticipation of 80% humidity in Texas, and am glad I did. I miss the long hair, but this short new do is much easier to handle. Sigh...
It was fun going to Albuquerque to see Russ's stomping grounds and where he grew up. The people were so nice in Albuquerque, and we had fun at our reception #3 (horizontal rain and all).
Russ is saying hello to his childhood house.
Seeing the sights of Albuquerque... and matching (totally coincidental. I guess the whole "married couple" thing is already getting to us)
We were really excited to get to San Antonio and finally unpack the suitcases we had been living out of for 5 weeks. The drive was actually quite miserable as Russ and I had to drive separately with him in the moving truck and me in the other car. But after 22 hours of driving we made it!
PS. Our tip to Austin failed... we are still dining on our cardboard box.
