It is so good to be back! The kitties are healthy and happy, as are the horses and chickens. The lawn needs mowing in the worst way. We are tired, but it's nice to have a swell place to come back to!
The wedding was spiffy; Lizzie looked like royalty (and her dad looked like a prince as usual), and it was great to see friends that we won't be seeing a lot of now that we live in the PNW. We extended a lot of invitations to come and visit.
(Note to self: I have got to take that white dinner jacket in. It just hangs on Gordon. Let's just say his daddy, from whom he inherited the jacket, was quite a bit chunkier than Gordo, who is 6'4" 200 lbs.)
The food was great, due to Julie B's expertise in that area, and the cake(s) were big and yummy thanks to Holly's expertise in that area (and my amateur decorating abilities, in this case the ability to shingle the edges with split hazelnuts). More & better pics here & here.
We also got talked into hauling a few things out to the Novato Ren Faire site...so of course Gordon had to share his new acquisitions with the boys.
