So we went to Puerto Rico to be a part of my Grandpa's wedding celebration. No big deal or anything. So here's how it all went down...
We stayed about 2 hours away from San Juan in a city called Rincon. The resort was right on the beach. This is a picture of the roof top pool over looking the ocean.
Here's another view from the roof top.
We were just really happy about our vacae.
The second night we were there we threw a bachelor/bachelorette combined party for Kim and my grandpa on the deck.
Setting up the music to set the mood ;)
The happy couple :)
Look how stinkin' cute my grandpa's new wife is you guys. She was opening her presents. They both got glow necklaces, normal party necklaces, nerf guns, puerto rico picture frames, etc.
My grandpa. He couldn't quite figure out the nerf gun thing hahaha
Kim with my grandpa's cousins. He's Slovic and immigrated here when he was in his early twenties. The best part is none of them speak english but two which was broken english. It's so awesome!
At the combined partay
We had sunsets like this every single night. This one was our favorite. Can you guess why? Think football.
After 8 years, finally tied the knot! Hip hooray! During the ceremony the tide kept coming in and got all our fancy clothes wet, but luckily didn't touch the bride and groom! The reverend was a woman, and did half the ceremony in spanish, and the other in english. A very unique experience.
Excuse me while I brag about my handsome husband. Like, really? Look at that smile. Such a stud.
Centerpieces at the reception
Bar (don't worry we ordered virgin ;)
Arriving to the reception Mr and Mrs :)
She's awesome and such a young hip thang. I told her when she starts getting grey hair then maybe I'll call her grandma, but until then she's just too cool for it. Haha
Also, she has a really hard time taking funny pictures because all she does is laugh. So this is the best one I got ;)
Cutting their wedding cake. Side note, my grandpa (oh and FYI I call him Paca Nick. It's a thing) has a hard time staying in fancy clothes, plus it was super humid in PR. So when they initially got to the reception he went straight in after the dinner to change, but totally spaced about the cake and first dance so everyone had to chase him down to have him change. It was hilarious. Poor guy.

Okay, eventually he changed, and busted out the moves. #mygrandpaiscoolerthanyours
We went snorkeling at a beach called "Steps Beach" and it was awesome.
We went out and walked to this restaurant called "Lucky 13" we found on trip advisor and it was THE BOMB! B got a pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese, and slaw. I got this taco called the Squidward which has fried calamari, wasabi aioli, marinated carrots, and slaw. All of it was amazing.
We took a drive into town to go explore, and were amazed by the greenery. Kind of reminded us of fort canby driving through this canopy of trees.
May or may not have gone back to Lucky 13 because we loved it so much
B got super sick the last day, so being in and out of airports coming home for 12 hours wasnt making him too happy.
This is after 11 hours. Don't judge
We stayed in Denver over night on the way home, and woke up and flew into SLC to play with Kelsey and Jon. But it was just really hard going back to an airport. BUT ONE LAST TIME!
I'm the baby whisperer. Love my little niece cozy loving to be cozy with her auntie tay.
Um, so I know Kelsie #3 already posted this, but literally had a New Girl moment watching these two do their shoulder exercises.
He looks good with a baby, eh? ;) Can we all just appreciate the cute babies Kelsey and Jon make? Cozette is adorable and so lovey.
Back to real life, but I uploaded some more pics from B's phone, anyways, for Halloween my office the girls dressed up. I was a cat.
It was fun. Love them.
For halloween we went out to a new restaurant called the yard house at the village in meridian. B got the enchilada stacks, and I got fish 'n chips. Both were amazing. I was super happy that the fish 'n chips were finger food which makes it easier to enjoy, ya know? Then went trick or treating with our friends, then watched a scary movie.
We watched Ryan and Nena's kids for a week last week. They were such fun kids! Always had so much energy and wanted to go out and do things active. Loved it!
We took them to this place in Meridian called Dart Zone which is an indoor dart zone play house. They split up into two teams, then attack! It's so fun!
Britney Jason and their kiddos were in town this weekend. We ate at this taco truck place and went to the village to enjoy the water show they display with this huge fountain. Look at these sweet faces! They got balloon toys at a vendor. Love them.
So back tracking, when we were on our way to PR we took an overnight pitstop in Denver to play with Mandi and Collin. They treated us to dinner at an hibachi restaurant which was yummy! So sweet of them to think of us on our anniversary.
Then we thought it would be cool to go to a haunted house. But we bonded over it since we all clung to each other the whole time. Here's a funny story, so they split up the haunted house into two, right? The first one was based off of scary movies. At one point they had one based off of the movie "The ring." So we turned a corner and there was a well, where the creepy long black haired girl crawled out! B was behind me, and I was attached to Mandi, and I seriously think B peed a little. He kept saying, "YOU GUYS SHE'S COMING! SHE'S RIGHT BEHIND ME! HURRY UP!" It made my life.
Here's a real life update...
So we are still waiting to hear if B got into PA school. BUT, HE GOT AN INTERVIEW!!!! :) He's scheduled for next Monday, so please keep us in your prayers!!! Thank you thank you!!!
B also got a new job at Mattress Firm, (it's a mattress store), as a salesman. Full benefits, sweet compensation and pay, and works well with PA school. We've been looking for paramedics, but it's super saturated here. So it's such a blessing that this job came into the picture.
As for me, I'm just working and waiting for the next chapter to start, (aka PA school, babies, house, blah blah). Everything happens in the Lord's time I know, PATIENCE.
That's all I got.
