I just want everyone to know that I'm very jealous that my husband can update our blog while I'm at school for hours and hours and hours...

I still love him, though!

Honeymoon in San Antonio

We don't have wedding pictures yet - other than the ones we linked to in the last post.  But we can share a few from the honeymoon in San Antonio.

Of course we have to start with the Alamo.

We took this one outside the Alamo. It's a super old live oak.

This is at Fort Sam Houston.  Milton is my grandfather.  His wife (Grannie) and daughter (Charmayne) are buried with him in that grave.  That cemetery is quite a sight.  The headstones seem to go on for miles.

This is the belt buckle that I wear.  The logo was Grandpa Brown's division logo (Second Infantry).  Some of his experiences are listed.  He was part of D-Day plus 1.  If I read history right, that means he helped storm Omaha Beach.  It is amazing I am even here.

Jeri Lin and I took some time one morning to do some temple work at the San Antonio Temple.  This is one of my favorite temples.  Partly because of some of the experiences I have had there.  My parents, Whitney, Kemp, and I did the temple work for Grannie Brown and were proxies for her sealing to Grandpa Brown.  My dad's family was finally sealed together.  The day we were there would have been Grannie and Grandpa's 67th wedding anniversary. They were originally married at Fort Sam in 1945, the end of WWII.

Our resort hotel was amazing.  This is probably the nicest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel.

I really liked their kitchen also.  Neat colors.  It was fun to cook together, too. 

We had a great time in San Antonio.  Except for the Riverwalk.  It was drained for annual cleaning.  Lame.

Just so it is abundantly clear to everyone: I LOVE MY WIFE!

So we made it.  Jeri Lin flew to Dallas for two weeks before Christmas, all my family (Mom and Dad, Whitney and Kemp, and us) all flew different airlines (and times and airports) from Dallas to Phoenix, we got married in the Mesa Temple on Saturday, January 2, 2010, we spent a few days in Scottsdale for the honeymoon, then finished off the honeymoon in San Antonio, flew to Dallas, picked up my truck and stuff, rented a trailer, drove to my house in Bryan to get the rest of my stuff, drove another 1000 miles to Arizona, and now we are mostly moved in to an apartment in Tempe. Whew!

Take a look at a few of our wedding pictures here at our photographer's webpage.  We haven't seen the rest yet, but we really like the pictures so far.  Oh, and go check out Whitney's blog, because they have a few nice pictures up also.

It's been non-stop busy around here but we promise to have more about the Temple, honeymoon pictures, and apartment pictures within the next several days.
