Here are some pic's of our Bride, Gina & Groom, Frank....

 Friday was set up day and it was beautiful...Frank even got a sunburn.  Saturday, wedding day,  it an hour before the wedding everything was taken to the barn and set up.  It turned out great and the kids were happy.  When they get to this point, basically all they want to do is get married and they don't care where.  So much planning goes into two hours of joy. 

The wedding was at 2:30pm and by 8pm my husband had me in the car and off for vacation.  We always spend a week at Black Butte Ranch.  It has bike trails, swimming pools, dry heat, and The Stitchin' Post down the road.
 Loved these quilts...this is the 36th year for the outdoor quilt show in Sisters.  It's always on the second Saturday of July.  Thousands come from all over the world.

Our son brought his family and Gramps and Gram kept them for six days by ourselves.  God created us to have children when we were young....we have a lot more energy.

 Treat time....even the dogs came.
 I took them home on the train.  It was a hour and a half of eating and wrestling and then a hour and a half of sleep. 
Life is good!!!


Where does time go???  I want the answer!!!  It feels like my eyeballs are hanging out of my head which means I'm extremely tired today.  I have been out in the yard with my husband working madly to remove EVERY weed and then throw bark dust in the flower beds before our first wedding at the farm this year.
But before that I want you to see some pictures of our time in Spokane Washington, two weeks ago.
We flew up and met our BFF's....aren't the fields beautiful?
We lunch at the airport diner.  That's Tim my BFF's husband.
Then we headed to our hotel...the famous Davenport.  We stayed in the tower and it was decorated with a safari theme.  Do you have an elephant lamp like this?  Me neither...

There were elephants everywhere....and we woke up to a HUGE picture of a rhinoceros.  Very different but very luxurious and comfortable hotel.
We asked the concierge for a cute coffee shop and she suggested Madeline's down the street.  And we were HAPPY.

 We even hauled the hubbies down there for Sunday breakfast...and none of us were disappointed.  IT WAS FABULOUS!!
Saturday was Chicks Day....

The dolls were all dressed up...

It was a great show...
Then we were off to The Buggy Barn...a quilt shop that is out in the middle of "no-where"

 They even had quilts hanging on the ceiling.   LOVE IT TOO!!!

Last stop for the day was Mel's garden store.  MB (the BFF) and I love this store because they have everything a girl could plants, clothes, purses, jewelry, even food!

 And check out this chair.  I had to sit in it to see if it was comfortable...basically, not for a long time.
Our last day was Sunday so MB and I took a historical walking tour of the Davenport hotel.  

 Beautiful huh?  It was like time stood still. 


We are having a wedding at our farm in two weeks which means a lot of yard work.  Most of the flowers have been planted and now we are trying to weed and bark dust. 

And this week end we are flying to Spokane for the Farm Chicks antique show where I will meet up with my BFF again.  I love this show and the time with MaryBeth.  Hopefully I will have a lot of fun pictures to share.
