jackson hole....better known as 'heaven'

our dear dear friends, matt and ellee, tied the knot! we were so honored that we got to be there to celebrate with them. if you have not been to the grand tetons, go. go now. pack your bags and go. why wyoming? why not? ellee's family has a vacation home there and it is their relaxation destination. we're so glad we got to experience their home away from home.
here are a few pics of wyoming. enjoy.

we flew into salt lake city, ut and drove 4.5 hours to jackson hole.
the drive was gorgeous!

welcome to jh!

wyoming is known for their wildlife...but jh thinks it's hilarious to put up a bunch of fake animals....i fell for them every time!
*i thought you said you were a moose*

there were these HUGE, all black horses right by our hotel,
so naturally we had to say 'hello'.

grand teton national park

the burkholders treated everyone to a scenic rafting trip on snake river
*please note the paparazzi in the background*

super excited about rafting!

the grand tetons

*pictures don't do it justice*

we saw a lot of wildlife on the trip

*bison in motion*

 my favorite...the bald eagle or more accurately known as 'america's mascot'!

a real moose

taking it all in

as we were heading back to town, we saw a baby brown bear!

the cocholder wedding!
*the chevron print looks like the tetons*

the ceremony was outside
love these two!


the mckelvys

 matt and the best man
*please note the sitting area behind them.  i saw 2 shooting stars from there later that night*

*lots of amazing food, fun, drinks and dancing*

thank you to the burkholders and the cochrans for a perfect wyoming experience!

also, on our back home we stopped in slc and got to eat with josh and becky!
thanks for showing us the slc hotspots! come visit us soon!

while we were in wyoming, mclain stayed home with marmee and grandad and his uncles. a BIG thank you to them! i know mclain is perfect but he is still a lot of work. it was much easier to leave him, knowing that he was in good, loving hands. i've never wanted to come home from vacation until this one. we were so excited about getting home to mclain. also, we don't have jobs, so we weren't dreading going back to work.

so what was mclain doing while we were gone? eating crackers. the white family loves crackers! i'm just glad they didn't put margarine on them.

hugs and kisses~m, s, mc, t, b, b, m, b, m, n, bc, and t
