The Wedding Marathon is Over

It began early Friday morning. We were off and running. We passed mile post after mile post of items on our checklist. Buy the food items needed for the reception. Bake 10 half sheets of brownies (of which we used 5). Frost and decorate as much of the wedding cake as we can do one day before the reception. Eat dinner, and treat the youngest son for heat exhaustion while in the restaurant. Decorate the room for the reception. Home to bed and fall asleep around 1 am. Get up at 4 dark 30, and get ready to leave for the wedding breakfast a three hour drive away. Eat breakfast quickly to be at the wedding location (Draper temple) 1 hour away from the restaurant where the breakfast was held. Hold the wedding (It was beautiful). Out at 2:15 to take pictures until 3:30. Get in the car and race the 3 hours back to where the reception is being held. Arrive at the reception location with the last few items 20 minutes before the reception is supposed to start (the bride and groom arrived with 5 minutes to spare). Meet, greet, and eat for 2 hours. Clean up for another hour. Home to put away the leftover food, and in bed by 11.

One down, 5 to go. Pictures to follow on facebook. :o)

Hang in there. Stick.
