Okay, So I am hopping on the Blog bandwagon. I don't know how good I will be, but I will try. I am starting with our most recent trip to Brazil for Matt's brother Chris's wedding.

This is a picture of Copacabana Beach! Sadly I actually thought it was located in the Bahamas, but it isn't! Our hotel was right in the middle of it!

This is a picture of Sugar Loaf. We got to ride the tram up to the top, which is the wires you can see. At the top of the Christus which overlooks Rio de Janeiro. The picture doesn't do justice to how large it is. We are standing really far out in front of it to get it in the picture.

Matt and I right before heading to the wedding!

The wedding was so amazing. It felt like a celebrity wedding! As a side note to explain, this was at close to 1am, and it was 90 degrees with like 100% humidity. So yes, the jacket came off. And no, it's not beer in front of us. It is a Brazilian drink called Guarana, and it is yummy!

Matt at the Brazilian soccer stadium. He was like a 12 year old! It was great!

This is a picture of the wedding/reception area for the wedding. It was crazy, they brought in a dance floor, and disco ball, lights etc. The flowers were everywhere and smelled amazing! Thsi This is the box of chocolates that Marcelli's mother gave us as we left the wedding. Each chocolate was sitting inside a fabric flower! There were probably 12 tables full of these at the wedding. I was in heaven. I think I ate my weight in chocolate, and let me tell you, that isn't a small number any more!
