So the end of summer is almost here. Atleast for the school kids, they go back next Tuesday, but I am hoping the nice summer weather will still stick around for a while longer!! August has been a busy one but a really fun month! It all started when the weather started to get super nice and it stayed nice which was great. Than Kyle and I had our 4th year anniversary. We didnt do anything on the day because it just so happed that was the day everyone planned Scott's (Kyle's brother) bachelor party on! At first I was like seriously....couldn't you have picked a different day but it just didn't work and I guess I understood. The went for a helicopter ride all around the area which Kyle said was great and than they all went golfing at this new golfcourse that just opened up this summer called Wildstone! Kylke and I went there with Lloyd and Shirley at the end of July for my birthday and it was really fun! I super nice golf course! But back to our anniversary, since Kyle and I didn't do anything on the day we decided to plan a little getaway. For those of you who don't know Kyle bought a Harley Davidson Bike this spring and he LOVES it! I havn't been able to go on it yet because of my leg and also it only had one seat. But kyle ordered a nice one with a back rest for me and we decided to go on a little holiday on his new bike!! We went over to the went kootenays because it has really fun roads to ride a bike on! We went to Nelson and spent the night, than the next day we went to this little place called New Denver and than went to Ainsworth and stayed the night there and went in the hot springs! I love those hot springs, they have this cave and it is super cool! And than the final day we took a different road home and went on the ferry! We had a great time. I was worried about walking that much without my crutch though so we got a cane and strapped it to the back of the bike :) Very classy I know! Even being crippled it doesn't stop me haha!
Since than we had the Amber's bridal shower and the Anderson family reuion which I already posted about! That was a fun weekend and it was just out luck the weather was BEAUTIFUL!! Oh and don't forget I did 2 wedding cakes at the beginning of August!! I love doing wedding cakes! I mean I like doing other things like for kids and such but I just love doing wedding cakes. The elegance and beauty of them...thats what I like to do!!
And than just last week was Amber and Scott wedding! It was a beautiful day for a wedding! The sun was shineing and it was super hot! I thought I was going to be a crazy crazy day because it was also scheduled to be our branch temple day as well and the primary was asked to organize it and if you don't know the primary consists of Marge our preident, me 1st counceller, and Rylee 2nd councellor who is also my sister-in-law! So Ry and I did what we could a head of time and when the day came we were there for a few hours in the morning and than we had to leave to go get ready for the wedding! It ended up going really smoothly and there was lots of people there to help out when Rylee and I had to leave which was really nice! Oh and also....I did their wedding cake as well so once we did our family photos I had to leave Cardston and drive to Lethbridge to go set up and finish the cake. It turned out amazing considering I had to bring it down to lethbridge in pieces and hope I didn't forget anythng at home! Also I am so happy with it because I had flower trama! Haha So I ordered the flowers for the cake way ahead of time but when they came in I went to go pick them up the next day and the florist's coolers froze overnight so they were dead. But she said not to worry and they would order some in for tomorrow. Well I was on my way to town again when I got the phone call that they came in HOT PINK!! I nearly died. So here I was 2 days before the wedding running around town trying to find something to replace what I had ordered but do you think I could find anything... NO! I ended up getting some dark red berries and than my mom had to wait for a new shipment to come into Safeway the next day to get some red roses. In the end everything turned out great and surprisingly she had the exact red berries in her bridesmaids flowers so it looked like I did it on purpose haha! I don't have a picture of the cake yet because I didn't have my camera so the photographer took a bunch of photos and said she would give them to me but I havn't got them yet! I will put one up when they come though! Amber was a beautiful bride though...she is always beautiful though so it didn't surprise me!!
But now I am just still trying to enjoy my summer :)
