This weekend two of our best friends were married, Marci Morscheck and Josh Anderson! They were one of the first couples we met here in Boise and we have enjoyed becoming so close with them over the past 2 years. So, Saturday morning, Brent and I packed Abby up and headed north, way north, 5 1/2 hours later we arrived in Lewiston for the big event. It was a very, very long day, but it was worth it. We had such a wonderful time being apart of their big day, and were so blessed to have witnessed such a special and sacred event. The Bride looked stunning, she was so happy, the first time I saw her at the hotel she was crying because she was so happy! I also helped the Dittrich kids (the 3 children I nanny full time for) get into their outfits, Josh and Matt were the ring-bearers and Maggie was the flower girl. She didnt quite make it down the aisle, but she still looked adorable. The day was perfect, the heat held off, which is rare in lewiston, it didnt rain, it was just great. Unfortunately, I started to try to take pictures and realized our camera's battery was dead! I was so upset! but our great friends took many pictures, so hopefully we'll get those soon and I'll get some posted.
We also had the luck and were blessed to get some time in with my cousin Stephanie today before we left as well! Steph's daughter, Bella, was our flower girl at our wedding last year. Her Husband, Ben, Just returned from 10 months in Iraq, he is only home for a few weeks though, he has another several months of his tour to finish. They drove up to Lewiston from L.A. Thursday and Friday to see his family, so we were able to spend about an hour with Steph and Bella. I was so happy! Hopefully, we'll be able to see them again when they drive back down.
We also found a very yummy new restaurant in New Meadow (just north of McCall) on the way home, we were exhausted and starving, so we had some BBQ at Sagebrush BBQ on the main street through town. it was sooo good!!! They even let us sit out on the patio with Abby at our table, we were the only patrons eating out there, but it was still nice of them. try the potato skins, incredible!
Overall we had a wonderful, long, tiring weekend! The trip was worth it, but we are truly glad to be home.
