Bridal Tea Party

Last weekend Jonda hosted a tea party for all the brides (and a few of us stragglers) that she had over the last wedding season, we all had to wear formal bridal attire (wedding dress, bridesmaids dress), it was a traditional high tea menu put on her by her awesome sister-in-laws. We had a blast taking fun pictures and pimping out our wedding dresses with fun accessories. Thanks Jonda!

Rockaway Beach, Oregon

On Sunday Brian and I headed down to Portland to meet Seth and Carrie for a little getaway on the Oregon Coast. We rented a little place in Rockaway Beach only a block from the ocean and on this little lake. It rained alot but we still had a blast!
The canoe ride was a little tippy, we almost went overboard a few times...
Seth has this crazy idea...cracked me up!

We ate plenty of cheese at the Tillamook Factory...yummy

Brian enjoyed flying his kite, I wish I would have taken video cause he is really good!

Quadding in BC

This weekend, {Brian's first weekend off since corn started} we decided to head to Bryan and Emily's for some fun! We took the quads up to ride for the weekend, we figured it would be raining, so we packed rain gear and its a good thing, oh man did it rain!! Saturday we drove up to the Tulameen where to unloaded and rode most of the day, despite the rain we had a blast!
Sunday we went out near their place and the weather was perfect! Check out the Mud Bog video.... you'll notice half way through there is screaming and the camera gets all crazy....well Emily was videoing us standing at the edge of the mud bog, when I came through- the water came with me soaking her up to her knees almost! Good thing the day was almost over.

Punkin' Carving

On Sunday night Brian and I went over to the Pingetzers for a little pumpkin carving...the little munchkins were so excited about the pumpkins, but they refused to reach in and clean them out- rascals! Needless we went on carving with out them. Brian and I had big plans to trace these cool patterns....we traced them and then lost interest in carving them...we ended up with faces! Ashley persevered though and it paid off!

Ashley's awesome pumpkin!

It was alot of work and we were all exhausted by the end of the day....but totally worth it! Thanks girls for all the help! pie filling!
