Arches National Park

We took a little side trip on the way home from the wedding in Oregon to Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. It is about three hours from our home. Very cool rock formations, but might I suggest that you go there when it is a little cooler! It was over 100 degrees while we were there! We only saw a few of them because we were out of water and it really was very hot! Worth the trip though!

Joel and Emily's Wedding

The day of Joel and Emily's wedding was absolutely beautiful. There was a bit of cloud covering and then some patches of sun just to assure us that there would be no rain on this day! Everything was so well organized that if there was some sort of glitch no one noticed! The yard was spectacular, a gardener's dream. Romantically lights were strung in trees and bushes to give us a glow while we celebrated. The desserts were beautiful and delicious, or so I'm told, OK who am I trying to kid? Yes, I tried most of them, I think I missed a few!

Our very dear friends the Hellwegs, who live in Oregon City, let us stay with them while attending Joel's wedding. So great to be able to stretch out and let the kids play in their gorgeous log home! We met the Hellwegs on the day that Joel was born so it was fitting that they have a part in this great celebration.
