We had a successful trip for my daughter's wedding dress! She is getting married June 19th and we had so much fun working on all the plans. The wedding is going to be at her fiance's parents home, outside. It's a beautiful setting with views of the Willamette River. I'm doing the invitations and some of the decorations. FUN!
We also went up into the Gorge for 3 days and had a blast! We visited museums, awesome waterfalls, hiked, ate great food and had delicious mother/daughter time! The highlight was our 48 degree hotel room in Cascade Lockes! A transformer was down at the Bonneville damn and the whole town was without electricity from 10 am to 6:30 pm! We drove across the Bridge of the Gods over the Columbia River to Stevenson, WA to eat dinner then came back and snuggled under a ton of blankets till the electricity came back on.
I really enjoyed visiting The Viewpoint Inn where they filmed the prom scene in the 1st Twilight movie. I'm standing under the sign they used in the movie when they went into the prom. Dig my hiker boots!!! I got them in Salem and wore them nearly everywhere I went, lol! My feet were comfy, dry and warm!
Everything was so fresh and green and beautiful! It's hard to choose my favorite place, but I think it was up in the Gorge at Multnomah Falls - AWESOME!!!! I can't put into words how gorgeous it was. That little speck on the bridge is me...
I must say I did miss my card making! Of course I visited several big craft stores and some great rubber stamp shops. Sure wish I had some of that variety here! And I did purchase some new papers and a few other supplies. I have to get busy and use some of them! But at the moment I am working on a project for the wedding - favors for on the tables. (I'll post them probably tomorrow.) ALOHA to all of you, you were missed and I will be visiting you soon and look forward to seeing all the great things you've done while I was gone. HUGS!!!!
