The wedding is over

Last weekend was Kaitlin's wedding (remember the scrapbook I've been working on with my friend Bev for her daughter - her daughter is Kaitlin).

On Thursday, we took Bev, Kaitlin, Ann and Arlene (the grooms mom and sister) out in the boat to Rosario Resort for lunch. The day was questionable weather wise, and at one point it poured rain, but once we got 1/2 way there, the clouds broke up and we actually sat outside the grill by the marina and had lunch - it was so much fun!

Then, Friday night, I had a bridal shower for Kaitlin here, and there were about 40 women!! Marla Raske came and worked her tail off in my kitchen for about 8 hours to help make food and then serve and cleanup! What a faithful friend - and I didn't get a picture of her with her apron on - bad blogger! If you wonder what it's sounds like to have 40 women in your house? Let's just say, I had to use my "mommy" voice to get them all to stop chatting! :-) What fun!!

This is me with Kaitlin and Bev - such special people to me!

My niece Marla made this beautiful masterpiece with a bouquet I picked up at Costco - now why can't I make it look like that!

Sunday was wedding day and the weather turned our perfectly! It was at Evergreen Gardens on the Pole road (same place we had my dad's memorial) and it was beautiful!

Now this week was just back to work for 4 days and last night my brother and his family came to stay with us for the weekend. Today we're going to Friday Harbor for dinner and then tomorrow is the annual Brim July 4th picnic at my mom's. My whole family, even my brother from Florida is here - it will be so fun!!

Was that your mommy voice, or your little sister voice? Hmmm... guess it's the same! :-) Hope you enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend and have a chance to relax and unwind a bit.

Such a nice idea for the motb, motg and daughters to have a day.

Now, more importantly, let's see some wedding pictures.
