The trip was fine--lots of driving, but well worth it. The wedding was beautiful, and so were the kids and grandkids. Bend, Oregon, was beautiful too, and I think I could live there if it wasn't so far to one side of the states. I guess when you have four kids scattered over an entire (and large) continent, you need to stay at least a little more toward the middle.
The Schultz was an excellent traveling buddy, as always. But having a dog definitely limits where you can stop for food in the summer. No leaving the dog in the car while you go into McDonald's. So we could be seen at many a place, sitting in the shade of a landscape tree eating our lunch.
Here are some photos of family and friends...I don't have any Official Wedding Photos, but they'll get here sooner or later.
