Yellowstone Part 1 - First There Was A Wedding

The grand tour adventure starts here:


We made a detour before we even got started and headed south to Hermiston for some old family friend's daughter's wedding. She's about 4 years younger than me, but we were at Fox at the same time and did some evening swimming exercise. She's also a teacher so that makes it fun!

But first a stop at the rest area and Cory finds out about dandelion puffs!


The wedding was at a home with a gorgeous view. About an hour before the ceremony a crazy hail storm blew through. So when we got there the ground was white with quarter size hail stones and all the groomsmen were wet from trying to keep things from blowing away! It all worked out in the end and made for a very pleasant evening since it cooled the 95 degree temp down to the mid 70's.

Did I mention this family has 6 children? The two bridesmaids above are younger sisters. Rebecca lives in Montana and we hung out while I was in grad school. I also got to see her last month at Creation.

And from here we met Grandma and Grandpa (Brian's parents - mine were already with us) in the morning to head for points east!

  2. Kids and dandelion puffs! At least you didn't let him do it in your yard. We made that mistake with Cinderella. We're still paying for it 3 years later.

    Beautiful photographs!
