Kathy and Ron Rash, with Cindy Peterson in the background directing us in a game. Cindy, the youngest of our group works hard to keep us actively involved in something besides comparing ailments!

Prior to the wedding, however, we also got to celebrate Paul's 50th birthday!! I was going to post a photo of him blowing out the candles on his lemon meringue birthday pie, but this one is much, much better! I've never seen Paul's smile so wide as when he is with "his friend," Mary Hansen. Dare I say on a blog how much we love Mary?...She is fun, funny, and seemed to take all the craziness of the weekend in stride!
We got a kick out of this photo. The clubhouse where the wedding and reception were held had been decorated with Halloween decorations prior to the festivities. Someone forgot to remove this poster over the gift table, however!
Here's a cheesy threesome--Pat, Barb, and Paul
This is our mother's brother, Dayle Dunkley, and his wife Verdeana. They came down from Pocatello, Idaho where they now live with their daughter.

This plaque was a surprise to Carl. The first time we visited the Bumsteads' old cabin, Carl had just had surgery on his hands for carpal tunnel, and sat and read a book the entire time we were there. Steve and Jacque decided then and there that the new cabin would have a room dedicated to him; thus there is a small library in the turret, and many visitors bring a book to donate.
Clarks, Petersons, Rashes (we call ourselves the CPRs)
We didn't want to leave and are ready to go back, although our kids would disown us if we went without them next time.

Now, more photos of the Cody/Meridith wedding. I'm bummed that we didn't get a picture of Glendon and LaNay Manwaring who came down from Pleasant View. It was their 44th wedding anniversary. LaNay raided the kitchen to get some pieces of red velvet cake to take with them to their bed and breakfast (they had reserved it in Provo so they could attend the reception). Red Velvet cake was served at their wedding reception those many years ago.
First kiss as Mr. & Mrs.
Two more lovebirds.

The next night as we were preparing for another get-together, the doorbell rang, and Dexter came running in with a bouquet of flowers and note for Grandma. It was absolutely adorable, and I had to share this cute note! I loved having Dexter bring it, but also loved the thoughtfulness of Dexter's mom!

We truly are a winning family...all three of Darren and Susan's boys won their choice of soda pop in some kids' games (this cute little girl in yellow wanted to be in every photo--not sure who she is); Darren and Carl both won huge jars of jelly beans and Skittles for coming the closest to number of pieces in the jar (Carl was only 3 jelly beans under!). Kevin won marbles and Ethan glow sticks in a silent auction, and Pat bid all the way up to $8.00 to win a dancing Santa Claus!!
The main dish for the lunch was a pig that had been roasted in a huge barbecue-type drum. Jacob would have nothing to do with it..."that pig's dead, and it's been in the dirt...yuck!" (That's a direct quote by the way.)

Curtis and his drink of choice
Vegging out on the patio watching the kids play--now this is living!
Dex the happy driver
Oh, and we are now the proud owners of a Nintendo Wii, and we are loving it.
Great friends, Lynn and Cindy Peterson at a SL Bees game during Pioneer Days. It was blazing hot (does that bring back memories of a Mariners game two years ago, anyone?!).
A couple of classy sports fans.
Hiking up to Hidden Falls-Cameron slept through it all. I found the most interesting rock right at this spot...Speaking of sleeping.....
