A few weeks ago, Chris and I drove to Portland to celebrate a wedding and a birthday (I'm looking at you, Mom). Here are a few memories from the weekend...
^^This smiling photo is a miracle, because Seattle traffic nearly put us over the edge. FIVE AND A HALF HOURS TO PORTLAND, PEOPLE. It should have been three. We'll never know why.
^^Lindsey and Jon--their love was sweet to witness. They planned their elopement at the Goff family cabin in Canada, so friends and extended family gathered to celebrate a week later in Portland. Please note the very chic, grown-up tutu.
^^Dad and his late summer harvest.
^^Dad, brother, and husband all mildly annoyed at my attempts to "capture the moment" by running ahead on the path and turning around to snap this photo.
^^The prettiest summer flowers in Mom's backyard.
^^TREASURE: found at Mom's. Taylor the little angel--as a magnet. This is a Sunday school craft crime, people.
^^Unusual discovery #2 of the weekend.
^^Happy early birthday, Mama!
^^Our failed attempt at a group self-portrait.
^^Howie the pup.
This reminiscing is getting me excited for an upcoming visit from some of these family members to explore my Seattle home.
Have a happy three-day weekend!
