Jamie and Chris are MARRIED! It was the best weekend ever! Friday night was the wedding dinner at the Grand America. It was so elegant and the food was delicious!

Saturday Jamie and Chris were married for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. The sealing was the most spirit filled, powerful one that I have been to. I can't believe my sister is married, and to the man of her dreams. They make the perfect couple. They are truly two of the most amazing people that I will ever know. The wedding was so perfect!
Here are some of the few pictures that I have from the wedding festivities. Isn't my husband handsome?! My mom and her sisters are all so beautiful! The reception was at the Salt Lake Country Club, Perfect!

My beautiful aunt Joni along with the help of her two gorgeous daughters (my wonderful cousins) made this gorgeous table cloth out of lemon leaves. I am sure that it took them forever but it was definitely the center of attention at the reception. Amazing!


Summer 2009 has been the best summer! We have had such a blast! To start off the summer we had an awesome 4th of July. We spent the night at my Mom's cabin then we had the most amazing BBQ at my Aunt Joni's (she is the best gourmet). The very next weekend we had the Belka Family Reunion 2009 in Kanab at Clay & Shellie's house. We rode 4-Wheelers, had a pool party, went to a Chuckwagon Cookout, sat around the campfire, etc. We had the best time! Thanks Clay and Shellie for everything!

Pioneer Day we headed down to Southern Utah to celebrate with my Dad. On our way to Escalante, Auston and I went to Capitol Reef. It was gorgeous. I love spending time with my best friend/ hubby. It was so much fun to just be on our own little adventure. We went for a hike along the Fremont River, saw some petroglyphs, saw the Fruita Schoolhouse (way cool). What is crazy to me is that I have driven past the entrance to Capitol Reef dozens of times and we have never been there. I am so glad that we finally went. Escalante always celebrates Pioneer Day the Saturday after the holiday so we were able to be there for the parade. My Dad is running for Mayor of Escalante & Auston and I got to help in the parade. We threw out lip balm, fans that said Taylor for Mayor on them, as well as tons of candy. It was so memorable. I hope my Dad wins Mayor, he will truly be the best! Good luck Dad!
