What a weekend!
Our daughter, Karen, was married on Saturday afternoon in Terrebonne, Oregon, 3 hours away from home (Portland). The hotel was 30 minutes away. The groom's brother owns a farm in sight of Smith Rock.
It was about 4000 feet in elevation there, very dry, and 85+ degrees outside with not too much shade where we would be having the ceremony and the wedding supper. You can see some of the tables to the left in the previous photo, which was taken after the dinner. We had 110 present to witness the event.
We drove up on Friday and did much table moving, decorating, cooking and assembling of food. We were so busy Rick and I didn't take even one photo the entire weekend! I've thrown myself on the mercy of family and friends to get some photos they took, but many of them were working hard, too. My memory isn't photographic! I want pictures! My niece and sister took the ones I'm posting here.

After the meal, before the dance and bonfire.
I have to laugh. I wanted to not gain weight during this weekend. I didn't restrict food at all, but I worked so hard that my scale was down this morning... 123.8! The Dr. said I didn't need to lose any more when I weighted 126. If someone got a photo of me, I'll post it later, but so far I haven't seen one.
I wore and reapplied sunblock frequently, since I'm a burn and peel girl. I didn't burn (except the part in my hair, which I totally forgot about), but I have a totally unexpected tan!
For those who read my blog about whether or not to wear nylons... I didn't. It was soooooo hot!
It was a LOVELY wedding and reunion with dear ones. We worked hard cleaning up and driving home on Sunday. We are pretty much just resting today.
