Summer Fun (aka Weddings and Travel)

I can't believe we're already a week into August! Summer always flies by, doesn't it?

And time is really flying for me because I'm waist deep in my new project at work and with all the travel/weddings that I told you about.

But I wanted to let you know what we've been up to lately before Summer becomes irrelevant...

Two weekends ago the Mr. and I attended his fraternity brother's wedding in Glendale (North LA). It was an Armenian wedding (think Kardashians). It was a beautiful wedding and we ate SO much! I've never seen so much food at a wedding in my life.

I happened to get my hair cut/colored beforehand that day, so my friend Carey who does my hair also did an updo for me so I'd look pretty for the wedding. Love her!


Here's the happy couple with their cakes. Also check out those huge centerpieces.



And finally, last weekend we went on our annual family camping trip to Ft. Stevens.

The Mr.'s whole family was there. Here we all are (minus my brother-in-law's wife who couldn't make it)...

Note: this picture angle makes me look extra short. I'd said it before, I'm not short. I'm 5'8"! But the Mr's family is so tall, even his Mom is just shy of 6 feet.

In Ft. Stevens I did lots of sitting by the campfire and reading...

Which reminds me that I should post some book reviews!

And we played a lot of board games and lawn games, like Bocce Ball.


We have spent a bit of time at home in Long Beach this summer. A couple of weekends ago we hung out with some friend who live in an apartment on Naples Island in Long Beach. Love this view from their "backyard."


Tomorrow we head to Missouri to see my extended family and go boating/boozing on the Lake of the Ozarks, so I'll be back with more pictures and travel tales soon!

I can't believe you are 5'8" b/c from the pics I always guessed you were more petite! Too funny! I LOVE Naples! You have a very busy summer but looks like so much fun.

Dee Stephens said...

Yes, I would have thought you were petite too. I am..
Tall family!
Love your dress for the wedding. That style looks good on you. I like it for myself too.
I love camping trips too! So fun!
Lake of the Ozarks=awesome!
Have fun and be safe!

Looks like such fun travels! And, I can't believe you are 5'8 ( I am 5'9!)...you look so petite next to your husband & his family! I would have guessed 5'2 - 5'4! You guys are going to have tall kids :)
