Honey, we're home!

The trip was awesome! We had a marvelous time. We began by having our 1st flight canceled! No big deal we changed airlines and off the Denver then to Seattle. Then we got on the shuttle to the rental car place and waited in line for 20 minutes, hubs gave them all the info and the only had a 15 passenger van!!! You have to be kidding for the 2 of us. There were other people furious as well and we all went back to the airport to Avis and got cars. Never use Advantage Rental Car... they are horrid. So anyway, we got to Issaquah and we stayed in the guest house at hub's brothers.
We did some shopping for warmer clothes and left the next day to go to Port Angeles. Our hotel was on the waterfront and perfect. We woke each morning to the soudn of the ferries coming in.

The Wedding in Port Angeles WA. This is the backyard of the groom's parents.
Its overlooks the ocean in the backyard.
After the wedding! Joe and Sarah!

Me at the wedding venue. This is a B&B next door to the wedding house. I got quite a sunburn on my shoulders and neck. Who would have thought the sun would be that hot... because I was chilly.

American Bald Eagles on a tree just to the side of the house at the rehearsal dinner. So majestic!

Hub's brother and sister in law and their 2 boys. Lauren, Joe, Sam and Steve.

Sarah and Joe's wedding vows. How beautiful!!! the wedding was at his parent's home on the ocean!

My sister in law, Lauren made Sarah's dress. It was so pretty!

Backyard of the rehearsal dinner home. I had to go to Target and get legging and a black sweater dress for the dinner. I certainly didnt pack warm enough! What a house. The backyard backed up to a 50-60 ft cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean!!

The wedding spot after the ceremony and before the cake was on the table.

This is the rehearsal dinner. yummy yummy food, but very cool weather. The gardens are so pretty in the northwest .

My favorite place... Victoria BC, just a Ferry ride from Port Angeles to Victoria. Even in the rain I love to go there. We ate at The Empress Hotel

Reception area of the Wedding site. A beautiful home that back up to a 50 ft cliff to the ocean!
lots more pics, but I am ready for bed. You get the general idea.
Its always fun to go away and good to get back home. I came home to a not so ruly classroom and I'm in the process or re teaching them the procedures of the classroom. I'm glas this weekend is a holiday, I have a lot to do.

Leavin on a jet plane...

Victoria BC

Off we go to Seattle, Port Angeles and Victoria BC. I am soooooooooooooooooo excited to get away. Our niece is getting married in Port Angeles and then we are off the Victoria for a couple of days before coming home.

School is the most stressful. My class has a student that hollars out at will and screams. I love having special needs students in my room, but he is not controlable and the stress is hard on my kiddo, me and the child! Hopefully it will get resolved while I am gone.

I have a craft show in late Oct and I have not gotten anything ready. I am gettin after it as soon as I get back. I hired a housekeeper to come in a clean, yippee! If I am working and doing jewelry on Sat., I can t get stuff done!!!!!

Cant wait to be sittin at that beach. My sister in law just let me know to bring a jacket, since the rehearsal dinner is outside on the beach... I am drooling! I need the peace and solitude so badly. Am I gettin old and cant handle stress any more or what???

I just finished packing and Moey is with Montana . She is sooooooo excited to be keeping her. I think its time for a bubble bath and bed.
See ya when we get back!!!!

Branching out!

I am branching out and doing a craft show in October. Its a resale show in Norman Ok. There are clothes, purses, etc. High end only. She is also having a few vendors. I thought it over for lets say ummmmm 1 hr, and said OK. Mom lives in OKC, so no hotel, maybe my sister will come help.

Its soooooo hot here. I am love summer, but this is way too hot for me. You seem to just melt when you go outside. I take Moey out for a potty break and it just takes your breath away! Oh my!

Son #1 got home from San Franciso Friday night and goes to Austin tonight. then Houston the next week.

Son #2 starts his "career job" tomorrow. We are sooooo excited for him. I knew the right job would come along for him. He will be in the "natural gas" business as an analyst, I think.

School starts in 1 week! Holy Moly, I am soooooo not ready. My room is almost ready, but my mind is not. We also are leaving in a couple of weeks for a wedding in Seattle/ Port Angeles WA. After the wedding we will got to my all time fav place... Victoria, BC. I love to go there. There is a great place to have high tea- The Empress Hotel. I dont know id hub will be in the mood for high tea. We will be there only for the one day, as we will ride the ferry over in the am and back that evening! That will be awesome. A dear friend is going to sub for me!

Guess that all, I need to get my parent newsletter in order and then get to work on Tuesday and get my room finished. Hubs needs help at TU on Thursday. I have a wedding Friday night, so bam the week is planned!
