Shrouded Mt Rainier with Patricia & Bobby 8 August 2008

Mt RainierThe day after Katie & Scott’s wedding, Pat and Bob and I drove the 50 or so miles to Mt. Rainier and camped at White River Campground. We got there around 3:30pm, after getting side-tracked at the ‘mother ship’ REI store!! Wow…what a place, complete with a climbing rock and mountain bike testing trail landscaped with hills, a creek and waterfall, and completely tree-hidden. Bob got his first rain shell, and Pat and I got some cool Mt. Rainier maps. Driving down, we got a few peeks of the mountain through the clouds, which I had not seen since I arrived. (more…)

Katie & Scott…married at last! 8 August 2008

happy coupleIt was a simply lovely wedding – only 2 blocks from their house in Seattle, in beautiful Ravenna Park. Such a perfect setting for these two – it couldn’t have been more appropriate. The ceremony started with Katie’s walk across the meadow, then words from each parent. We then walked down a path to where vows were exchanged on a huge meditation rock deep in the forest (to which Scott built stairs for Katie!). The reception was in the lush green picnic area surrounded by tall trees; so elegant with linens, huge vases of flowers, and a cupcake wedding cake! (Helen and Bobby got lost in the woods coming back from the rock, and it took them about 30 minutes to find their way back!) Katie was radiant all day and evening, and what a delight it was to finally meet Scott! After the reception, many retired to their house for the after-party with beer and left-overs and dancing – some until the wee hours of the morning :). Enjoy these photos!…I wish I had taken some of the preparations yesterday…like Kate with her cell phone to her ear in one hand, carrying a folding table with Sarah (her matron of honor) in the other hand, and her bump sticking out. CONGRATULATIONS to you both!!!
