It's been pretty quiet here on the blog. I guess I was just having too much fun on our week-long vacation to Oregon. And then of course there were bags to unpack, laundry to do, and oh yeah, 500 pictures to sort through. Maybe I got a little trigger happy with my camera's shutter button.
We stopped at Multnoma Falls, and had my brother snap a family shot.
We had to dip Elaina's toes in the cold water. She didn't mind for the first few seconds.
Then we got ready for Johanna's wedding. My mom graciously offered to do the flowers again, and I helped her as much as I could with two babies to keep an eye on. Bryan was out in the heat helping set up tables. Then the day of the wedding, I got to do the hair for all of the bridemaids.
The Ewers' backyard makes for a beautiful location for a wedding.
Andrew and Johanna.
Tim and Leah, who got married in the same place two years ago.
My dashing hunk of a husband.
My brother Isaiah entertaining Elaina.
Another attempt at a family photo. It wasn't going to happen.
My best friend's son Josiah isn't exactly afraid of cute little girls.
One of the bridesmaid's bouquet I helped put together.
The cake, waiting to be cut, under the archway that my mom covered in flowers.
The first dance.
We were so glad we made the drive to Oregon to be a part of the celebration. It is always so good to see all of the Ewers (and former Ewers). Especially Shannon. I love that our kids are so close in age, and wish we could see each other more than once a year. There was talk of getting together sometime after Christmas for a "Thanksgiving in March." I really hope we can all make that happen.
