Quick turn around road trip. We just got back and I have so much to tell you.
The get along gang attended the wedding of my niece Staci in Oakdale, California. We didn't have an opportunity to stop by the Oakdale quilt store and let me tell you we wanted to go. But we did get to visit with my brother, the father of the bride, and eat some yummy fixings he had prepared for us.
Staci has the creative spirit. When my brother said she would wear a denim wedding dress I could not picture it...even with a "tie the knot western themed wedding." You will be amazed how really charming her ideas were. They were wed in a barn, we sat on hay stacks, there was a children's corral, cow bells for impromptu bride and groom kisses, a "denim" bride's cake and two groom's lucky horse shoe cakes.
On top of all that we visited the Holy Ghost Festival in Gustine. I found a source for fresh chestnuts and panoramic photos from the Azores. VoVo would have loved it so much.
Thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share my pride.
