Wedding 2008 Photos

Sharon and Dave were married on November 1, 2008, for time and all eternity, in the Mesa Arizona temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Several of our family came from long distances to be with us, which we deeply appreciate. Here are photos from Halloween, which we celebrated the day before, the wedding, reception, and honeymoon.

Rachel's 26th birthday

Dave's daughter Rachel, his son, Brian, Brian's wife and son, Laura and Felix, all flew to Phoenix for the wedding. Here we are around the table on Oct. 31, celebrating Rachel's birthday, which was on Oct. 30.

Laura's birthday

Having just had cake and ice cream for Rachel's birthday, we put candles on what was remaining of the cake and sang for Laura, whose birthday is in a few days (Nov. 10).

The Honeymoon

Dave and Sharon stayed at the Welk Resort in Escondido, California, about 30 miles north of San Diego. It was developed by Laurence Welk, who posed here for this photo with the newlyweds.

Dixon Lake

Late Monday afternoon we took a hike around Dixon Lake, just outside of Escondido.

Coming back into town.

As we finished our hike and drove back, we were greeted by this beautiful scene, looking down on the town of Escondido.

The San Diego Temple

On Tuesday, we drove into San Diego for a temple session.

The musical performance

The Welk Resort has a theater on the grounds. A highlight of our stay was a tribute to Irving Berlin in song and dance. A highly talented troup put on the Broadway-quality performance that we attended Tuesday evening.

At Sea World

On Wednesday, we drove back to San Diego to visit Sea World.

The Dolly the Dolphin show.

The number of tricks these Dolphins can learn is amazing.

Dolly the Dolphin doing the high jump.

How high is this rope? It looks like it's around 15 feet above the water.

Riding the dolphin

This is something I'd like to do - ride a dolphin.

An aquarium.

There are several interesting aquarium buildings at Sea World.

Lunchtime visitors

These two Mallards were very interested in our lunch. We had to share just a little, they looked so imploring.

A view from the tower.

We took the ride up the tower for a bird's-eye view of Sea World.

And another, looking out toward the ocean.

Shamu the whale.

Yes, the trainer is riding on the chin of the whale!

Another ride

And this trainer is riding on the back of the whale. This has to be more fun than Jet Skis.

Thursday

Sharon was gracious to let Dave play a round of golf while she went along. Here Dave is putting.

Driving

The resort held some free golf clinics. Dave was amazed to finally learn the proper way to hold a club and swing. As a result, he was finally able to get par on a couple of holes, which he had never done before.
