Taylor and Hayley's Wedding!

 On August 18, 2012, Hayley officially joined the family!!!  The bride and groom looked so happy!

The cousins were all dressed for the occasion.

Claire LOVED getting to hold the flowers.  She was also in charge (whether someone asked her to or she took it as one of her responsibilities) of holding Hayley's train.  Wherever Hayley went, Claire was always dutifully close behind.

Jacob and Claire waiting for their next photo op. 

The night prior to the wedding, we were joined by Elder Jensen for the presentation of the "Top 10 things you need to know to survive the Jensens," by Matt.  Andrew also joined us at the wedding.

It was a warm day in Newport, and there weren't lots of places to find shade, so sometimes we had to be a little creative.

The beautiful mothers and their little matching babies!  Adele was less than 3 weeks old when she flew across the country to join the wedding festivities.

Nana and Papa and all of the grandkids right before the reception.

All the boys in their matching outfits!  The cousins had a great time - we hardly saw them during the reception.  In fact, near the end, I would see Jacob and Clayton wandering around now and then.  Eventually, I figured out they were looking for Claire and Lydia (they were playing sardines).  It took a little hint to finally locate the girls.

 We managed to fit in a little swim at Kip and Sam's house in between the wedding and the reception in Hemet.  The drive to Hemet provided a little rest time for everyone, including Amber, squished in between kiddos in the back seat.

Why do we keep putting pictures of our kids sleeping in their stroller?  Maybe it's proof to ourselves that it happened at some time because it certainly doesn't happen often. We really exhausted them on this trip.  Liam, who we couldn't keep out of the sun quite enough to avoid a little sunburn (redheads burn so quickly!), finally fell fast asleep.  He looked so cute in his little bow tie!

The wedding party.
