Zachary on the other hand enjoyed his day with the babysitter. He gets to play with a 1 year old girl all day. He is already becoming the ladies man by talking and smiling to her - he is so interested in all the cool grown kid up things she does and can't wait to start doing them himself!

Today was Nick and Sarah's big day! We all made the 30 minute trek from Idaho Falls to Rexburg for the sealing. It was really windy and the skies were very grey...but not a drop of rain came down! The Rexburg temple was recently dedicated and the sealing room that was used is acutally the biggest in the entire church! I don't think there was an empty seat in that room....all the family on the Harris side and the Gray side was excited to witness this event. Sarah looked absolutely gorgeous...she actually wore the same wedding dress her sister Lisa used 8 years earlier! Here are some snapshots taken after the ceremony:
Dustin and his baby sister Sarah
The reception was that evening back in Idaho Falls - get this at a FLOWER SHOP! This huge flower shop rents the place out for receptions! How perfect is that? The place was a good size and completely decked out in beautiful flowers that Sarah had picked out herself! It was great to see all the Gray family - especially the ones that live in Idaho that Jen has never met (uncle John, uncle Rodney). Jen also got to see Grandma Simmons home in Rigby. We have too many pictures from this trip to post on blogger - so check out our smugmug site for tons more.

Thursday night Dustin and all the his brothers and father decided to take Nick out for a bachelor party...what better way to be men than to play laser tag, arcade games and mini golf! Of course this was a test to see how Nick survived laser tag as both Dustin and his dad had "Expert Sharpshooter" status with their military training!

So as the boys were playing - the girls were having a bridal shower for Sarah. Lots of kitchen gadgets and lingerie were received.
Sarah - excited for the wedding the next day
So after all the festivities it was time to crash at our hotel. We knew tomorrow was going to be even busier with the wedding and reception.

So what do you do with a almost 4 year old (Tyler), a 2 year old (Dylan) and a 3 month old (Zachary) when it is 40 degrees outside? Drive to Salt Lake City and enjoy the Childrens Museum! This place was pretty cool - I have never seen so many kids running around having fun. EVERYTHING was hands on interactive for the kids at this place. I was a bit releaved that Zachary just sits in his stroller or hangs out in the BJorn. Poor Rushell was running all over the place keeping up with Tyler and Dylan. Some snapshots:
Dylan doing some veggie "shopping"
Tyler riding a horse
Jen and Zachary just hanging out
Now you might be thinking - what would a 3 month old do at a Children's Museum? Stare at all the kids of course! Zachary LOVED watching everyone. He has really started to smile and interact more with people - he tries to "talk" to the kids...it is so cute.
Also - we celebrated Rushell's birthday while she was here (it is next week)...the boys were VERY EXCITED we had cake. Having a cake in the house actually turned out be a good "bribing" tool for the kids during the rest of their stay!
Next trip Jeff needs to join the Megerle clan on the trek to Utah to see us! No excuses about having to "work"! We enjoyed having the Megerle's here and already miss them!

ZACHARY SLEPT THROUGH THE ENTIRE NIGHT!
Wahooooooooooooooo! His last bottle was finished at 10pm, he was asleep by 10:30pm and didn't make a peep until 5am. Of course Jen didn't sleep much - kept waking up and looking at the baby monitor to make sure it was on because Zach hadn't woken up yet! Now the true test....can he do it again? We sure hope so!

Probably the only picture we got with a smile
These were SO ADORABLE - we couldn't decide which one we liked the best!
Our little ANGEL!!
