Photos: The Wedding, The Rainforest, The Return!

Ta-daaaa!

My sister was beeeooooteeeful. As you can see! Her dress was very Arwen, with gorgeous trailing sleeves and beading.







We headed to Brasso Seco for a hike. I love the picture of the van full of anthuriums. The forest was so GREEN, and Max and Khalil bonded and sped along. Max is such a good hiker now compared with how he used to be! I had a crayfish pedicure: they picked under my toenails and it's WEIRD! When the big ones came along I said 'yowch!' and ran away! The hike was a great battery-recharge for me, and it was so good to hang out with Kelly. 









And then, we came back home. Max was a great traveller, carrying heavy bags and being responsible. It's good to be home, despite colds and rain. I'm just beginning to catch up here, and have a few exciting new projects which all begin next week! I'm going to have to be VERY organized and focused, but I'll let you know how it all goes.

Your sister's beauty rivals the rainforest. And her dress is MAGICAL.

The forest...

Yes, yes, I absolutely agree with you all! Lou, you know my foot has to feature...

Vicki, you think I could fit pockets in that dress?? :) We once took home the wrong jacket, and lost my necklace which was in Sean's pocket. We never figured it out!

We have played Poohsticks under many Brasso Seco bridges.
