Cheers to Marisa & Dave
& Montana!

Glad we were able to make the trip, put on some nice clothes, and toast Marisa & Dave over the weekend.
Having a Ball at the Wedding
We had a ball! (Okay, okay, sorry.)

All the excitement made it hard to get a shot of the happy couple, but someone did share this one with us:

(Thanks Facebook)

Long way from Seattle to Lincoln, MT, but our travel experience was considerably improved by this new friend of Franklin's:
WA State Ferry Boat
Found at the airport, supposedly modeled after the Washington State Ferries.

As Franklin likes to say, "big boat!"

Also had a nice time showing Franklin all the taxidermy (what can I say?) at the Hi-Country Trading Post. On our second visit he was basically flawless at pointing to and naming the elk and the moose :)

It was pretty chilly outside, but we took a quick tour of their playground. Love these swings:

The wedding itself took place at the Hotel Lincoln:

(Thanks again, Facebook)

Now an outside wedding in Montana in late September is maybe a dicey proposition, but the weather turned comfortable just in time. (Just don't ask about the cleanup the next day.)

Of course, an outdoor wedding in relatively comfortable weather isn't exactly an invitation for Franklin to sit quietly and celebrate two lives becoming one.

Especially when all these toys were just sitting there behind the crowd:

Fun toys at the reception too, especially the photo booth run by
Six Shooter Photo:

With my sisters:

Love this set with Grandpa Ray & Grandma Rhonda's friend James:

At breakfast at (where else?) the Bootlegger Casino:

And finally, I love this family photo taken at the Staggering Ox back in Helena:

(Thanks Gilbert!)

Great to see everyone! Congrats!
