My Summer Vacation, Part 4

So when we last left our heroines they were in Spokane exploring and eating a wonderful meal. Let's check in on them now......

Saturday was relaxing and enjoyable spending time with the nieces and nephew and my parents. The wedding was at 6:00 so we had all day to relax.

 Brenda relaxing with the kids.

Me relaxing with the kids.

OK, this was not really relaxing.

The wedding was absolutely wonderful. It was outside at a golf course my cousin works at. The scenery was just beautiful and made a picturesque backdrop. There was lots of dancing and all around fun times had. We were able to watch the sun set as the night wore on.

 This is the view that was behind the minister during the ceremony. It was absolutely gorgeous!
 As you can see, it was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding.
As the sun was setting. It was a perfect ending for a perfect day.

My youngest brother dancing with his youngest daughter and my parents dancing as well.

The next morning, we had a baby shower for my cousin's daughter. I won't bore you with the pictures of all the gifts and oohing and aahing. But, it was a fun time had by all the female members of the family. Again, it was another great family sharing time.

After the shower, we all said out goodbyes. This was the last time we were all together as one big group. Some of us were heading to Glacier National Park and we would see each other there.

It felt so good to reconnect with my family. I was so amazed how well we just picked up where we left off. I know it won't be as long until we all see each other again.  It was truly a magical time.

The next chapter in this saga will be all about Glacier National Park. I warn you ahead of time that there will be lots of pictures.

So until next time, safe travels to all.
