Weekend in Pictures

OK I’m back in action for the most part on my blog after taking a week off to get over jet lag and run around town with Dan getting everything taken care of – Social Security, marriage license, shopping for essentials, and filling out lots of other paperwork as he’s applying now for his employment authorization and permanent residency once we make it official this coming Thursday.  All I can say is it’s soooo nice to be done with the back and forth travel and just have a bit of normalcy to our lives now.  Yay!!!  And hey, being in the garden with my honey every day can’t be beat – we are both so gung ho about that especially.  Here’s a bit from our last few days…

Wandered around the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden on a perfect Saturday...

My sweetie loving all the flowers. We were a bit late to see all the rhodies in bloom but still got a lovely view of many.

Many of the ducks were napping :)

Even managed to catch an otter cruising across the lake, Dan's first time seeing one.

Made it down to Short Sands to scope out various sites to have the ceremony at. Narrowed it down to 4 and of course being 4 days before the ceremony we've got to hurry up and decide heehee

debris from the tsunami in Japan still washing up on our shores here in Oregon...along with this pallet we also found a deoderant can and other smaller items all in Japanese print

This is actually from midweek, but wanted to share a bit of my last day of the SMART school year. I read to this smart, awesome kindergartener along with an equally great 2nd grader. Can't wait for next year!

It is so much fun and so rewarding, and I love that my fiance is now signed up to do it as well. Can’t wait for next year!

Finished up the weekend with massages (perfect for post-travel, pre-wedding!) for the two of us at Written on the Body. Deeeelightful!

    Such beautiful pictures – as usual. I’m glad they are larger now so I can see them better! 🙂

    The characters look Chinese, perhaps from Japan. But Chinese. My 2 cents :).

      Yes definitely there are Chinese characters which are heavily used in Japan (the reason I dropped out after 3 years of Japanese in high school LOL) 🙂

    ie. The second character is moon, the fifth is water, sixth is small, and I should know the others, but my memory is slipping :). Japanese shares some of the same characters, so maybe this is Japanese. But all look Chinese to me :).
