We're baaaack!

Actually we've been back just over a week, but I'm only now sitting down to blog.

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.

    1. I did have a wonderful time--makes it hard to leave them, and takes a while to get back into "do without them" mode.

    1. It was good to get out of our normal "rat-run" and see more of the world. I put my feet in the the Pacific Ocean, so now I can say I've seen both of them. :~)

    1. Thank you. Since it was an outside wedding, and due to circumstances, we got tire of standing around hours before Show time, I spread a bunch of blankets under some nearby trees and we all piled on them to hang out together. A treasured time for me.

  5. You do have a beautiful family! Having to spend so much time away from family makes the reunion even more joyful. Your little Juniper could be an inspiration for a new sculpt, for sure!
