Graduation BBQ

Here are some pictures from the end of the year BBQ for Russ's grad program. He just finished up the program at University of Washington. He met some great people and we had a lot of fun. Here are some of the people that attended this feast. The food was provided by Selma and her family. They treated us with some authentic Bosnian dishes. Her mom is a chef and the food was amazing. Other people also brought native dishes from China and Afghanistan. It was great!!!

Here is Russ with some of the people from the program. To the right is Russ, Bobby and Paul. They were in Russ's study group with them and are super fun to be around.
They are really smart too, which is always nice to have in a study group.

This is Russ with Karen, she was in the program with him and will be working at Bader Martin starting in July. Yay!!!

The BBQ was a hit, there were lots of people, tons of food and great weather. We were super lucky!

The swing was the place to be, first Gilad and Grant were cuddling. They are the best of friends and an awesome team.

Following the cuddling session it was time for tea!!! Gilad, Emily and Grant enjoyed some Bosnian coffee. Pinky's up!!

The Flight Home

The wedding in Houston was beautiful and we had so much fun, but rarely slept. So I was really excited to get onto the plane and take a good five hour nap on the way home. Well the airport had other plans for us. We got there okay and walked everyone that was on the Vancouver flight to their gate and then headed back to ours. We boarded the plane and got all comfortable. I had my flying pillow propped up against the window, when all of a sudden the flight attendant got on the intercom and told us we were going to be delayed a bit because they couldn't get the air conditioning to work properly. I leaned over to Russ and said "yeah right, I bet the engine is broken and they don't want us to freak out." Next thing we know they tell us that we have to get off the plane and board another one. Ah man!!! So we packed up all of our stuff and got off the plane. We were suppose to be reboarded 45 mins later, but you know that didn't happen so 80 mins later we were finally able to get back on the plane and fly home. It was really annoying, I am just glad that it was an day flight and not a night flight. Otherwise we would have gotten back super late and might have caused even more problems. Here are some pictures of how we felt when we were in the airport waiting to get back on the plane.

Matt and Amanda's Wedding

Over Memorial Day weekend we flew to Houston, Texas to be apart of Matt's (Russell's brother) wedding. He married this amazing girl, who is very gifted and fun to be around.
He met her online and they started talking and hit it off and are now married. She lived in Texas and he lived in Colorado. They got married in Texas and then moved to Colorado.

Here are some pictures from the wedding. Russell and I were both able to be in the wedding party and help out.

This is Matt and Amanda as they were coming out of the temple as a married couple. They are so cute.

Here is Sarah (Russ's sister) with her two kids, Jared and Kayla.
Russ was so cute holding the baby, here he is with his sister and another one with her daughter Kayla.

Here are the guys being guys. All of the brothers were groomsmen and their wives or significant others were bridesmaids. It was super fun and we all looked great.
