A Wedding and a Smiling Baby in Paradise (I am resisting the temptation to make the title "Matt's Ramblings")

So, last Friday I flew up to San Jose for Allison's brother's wedding in ugly Menlo Park/Palo Alto area. The weather got all the way to a scorching 71 degrees during the day--and it even cooled off at night! Geez, who can live in such horrible conditions?

Friday night we had the rehearsal dinner. I got to meet a lot of Allison's relatives and family friends. The rehearsal dinner was at the bride's home, set all the way up on a hill just outside of town, where it had a terrible, ugly view of the hills (for some reason, we didn't get a picture of the view so I can't post it here).

Saturday, Kelli, Steve-o, and the Smiling Baby came and met us for breakfast. They got to meet Allison in person (to debunk the conspiracy theory that Allison was just a figment of my imagination and that for my previous post I simply Photo-shopped an attractive girl into the photo of me). Little RJ had just woken up during the car ride and was in a good mood. She was smiling lots. I think she likes me. At least, she smiles when she sees me. She was sooooo cute. Allison couldn't stay for long since she had to leave early for her hair appointment (she was a bridesmaid in the wedding). But, she wished she could have stayed and played with the little happy baby! (And for some reason we didn't get a picture of this occasion).

The wedding itself was absolutely incredible...I mean it was awful. The house where it all went down was on a couple of acres. There was a Redwood tree in the far corner. Who can live with such unsightly plants? There were not one but two pool houses. Man was this place fantastic.

The place had to be worth upwards of $8 million. It. Was. Gorgeous.

Dinner was fantastic. They served a nice salad, followed by steak as shown below.

Allison looked STUNNING all made up. Here is a picture of us (c'mon, we know this is what everyone's been waiting for--who cares about pictures of food?):

Now, I have this week to pack and get ready for my move this weekend. It feels so great to be done with school. And it feels so great to have left the ugly, terrible place known as Northern California with it's awful climate. Geez, who would want to pay the price to live there?...
