August Pursuits

August and December are months when, for me anyway, not much art gets made because of family, gatherings, celebrations, weather…and so on.  And speaking of weather….we’re having a heat wave…last week three days in triple digits…so Tuesday when we left town it was already 99 but, blissfully, we arrived at the beach and it was a comfortable 66…52 miles away but over the mountains and down to the ocean.

The next day Sidney & Co arrived which livened things up considerably…

and we had a nice week of delicious meals (made by Z & A) and drawing and fun…

Spaceships….

Aliens…

the beach…

As the temperatures cooled the schedule of activities became a reality so off we went

taking the back road…

which we love, but only if we have time for the CARWASH INTERLUDE…

Which we did, so off to the wedding.  Meg, the daughter of R’s cousin Mary, was marrying Bryan and it was a lovely event with lots of time to catch up with family…however, the chairs were all in the blazing sun except for one little corner that George staked out for us so we sat in the back row…

which, as it turned out, gave me a good vantage point for catching a few pictures of the wedding party…however I wasn’t the only one who thought this was a good spot…

Never mind…Mary and son Al were all smiles…

…I got a few good shots (though I couldn’t hear what Jeff said to Meg as he walked her down the isle)…

and the Hulls took over table 5

the bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome and the room was filled with people who were happy and loving…though there was a bit of photo chaos…

but Rayanne got the shot…

Home we zoomed to repack the bags…next adventure ahead…

    1. Thanks Deb…we had a great week and a great weekend. Sidney immediately was in the game when I mentioned the cardboard items were space ships…off and running!

  1. Love to see Sydney. My great granddaughter was here this week-end and it was so much fun–until it was time to say good-bye. That last bye-bye grammy is so hard. She is 3 1/2 and she never stops. Having a young child in the house makes everything better. Love MEM
