Another weekend away. The Seattle Edition

This weekend was a full speed sequence of events! Thursday night we went to my parents for "Christmas". Ashley and Brad will be going to Maryland for the real christmas and so we got to open presents early :)
**note: i only took a few pictures during the weekend. I'm planning on putting up the pictures that my sister took asap.















Friday morning we had a 7 a.m. flight to Seattle. We BARELY made it. The airport was soooo crowded with college students flying home for christmas. My family checked their baggage for about 20 minutes while Dev and I went to security to save a place in line. The line for our terminal was about an hour wait and our flight was about to leave in 15 minutes. Not good. So we ran to the other terminal where the line was about 10 minutes long. Right as dev and I were giving the security guy our tickets, my family came running and hopped in line with us. (the security guy was an angry little elf.) Then, we sprinted back to the other terminal and got to our gate at the last second. I have never been so stressed at 6 in the morning!

So we finally made it to Seattle for my cousin's wedding. I am sooo happy for him. He found such a cute girl and they are perfect for each other!

Friday night we went to the "rehearsal dinner" which was bowling at "Lucky Strike". It was such a cool idea. This wasn't just any bowling alley- this was a very classy, expensive bowling alley. Apparently there is one in Hollywood where the celebs go. ooohh la la!

There is a private room that they rented out and we had 4 lanes, yummy food, a bar, and a huge screen showing espn. Way fun! The mojitos were to die for.















Saturday morning was the best! I got up and ran 3 miles on the treadmill. Then, I went with my dad to run 5 miles on a pretty trail that goes along a river right by our hotel. It was the perfect weather and the air was SO easy to breathe. None of this dry utah air. Plus we were running at sea level. I was in HEAVEN. I felt so good the whole 8 miles and really enjoyed chatting with my dad about all the stuff that runners talk about :)
Here's my dad with some ducks.















And here I am in my new running clothes! These running pants are my new best friend. (thanks Bob for the awesome christmas present! )





















Saturday afternoon cousin Adam got married! It was so fun to go to the temple and be there with everyone. Luckily Ashley was able to get a hold of her bishop after forgetting to bring her temple recommend at the hotel. I guess the constant reminders I gave about not forgetting didn't get through to her ;)

Devin and I in front of the seattle temple. Dev gave me ray bans for christmas. Check those babies out! I'm happy to say I'm a true Rigg now.




















the happy couple! i love them!






























and this is today. Dev was a bit tired from the festivities and took a nap with Lolly the dog.















Next up! Mitt Romney (aka blaine) busts a move on the dance floor. (my dad loves it when random strangers tell him he looks like mitt romney. Hopefully Mitt becomes president so that my dad has some gigs on the weekends.)
