The next morning (if you can call 1pm morning) was filled with unpacking, washing clothes, cleaning out our bookshelves and a short run. Falling asleep nine hours after getting up was a little difficult. Now comes the challenge of getting settled back into work, excercise and weaning ourselves off our Twix/KitKat/Licorice diet.
Upcoming highlights will be Phillip & Em moving back to Portland for the new school year, 4 friends' weddings in the next two months and the return of Ron's best friend Aaron from 27 months of service in Bolivia (Peace Corps).

Since Ron gets excited about big parking garages, you can imagine his feelings about Hoover Dam! We returned in time to get cleaned up for Joan’s wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony held outdoors and followed by a cocktail hour, then seated dinner & dancing. After a lot of dancing, we did a midnight dip in the outdoor hottub and enjoyed the warm evening. We were so sad at the thought of leaving Sunday morning – we loved the Ranch and time with the family.
PS - I think my title is very clever =).

HI. He's on antibiotics now and we're hoping he'll be well in time for our big trip! To inject some humor into this sickly week, I thought I'd offer an awful photo of the two of us. This was one of the bloopers from our engagement photoshoot.
Yes, that was taken the day after I hurled and Ron hadn't had any coffee! This is really a photo worth clicking on to expand - you gotta see it in all its glory!
