Into the Woods

Quick post. Lots of pics. Not much time because we’re watching our niece and nephew, Genevieve and Ellory, this week. Summer’s here!

The weekend began in the mountains at my sis-in-law Louise’s wedding, where she married my new bro-in-law, Corbin. But before the wedding, we had to hit the zip-line. Why a zip-line at a wedding? You’ll see. But first, here’s Ellory and me zippin’ along.

The wedding began with my wife and her mom playing the harp and hammered dulcimer.

And suddenly, flying over their heads, came…the groom!

Zip-lines are the best way to make an entrance for a wedding in the trees.

Then Louise’s sisters and mom performed “Because” by the Beatles. This is Reis, JoanMarie, Gypsy, and DonnaJo.

After the wedding, JoanMarie and I took Genevieve and Ellory camping for a few days. Like any good aunt and uncle, we let them play with knives…

…and fire.

If Gypsy and Eric are reading this, don’t worry. Your kids are perfectly safe. And the skunk? Yes, it raised its tail at Genevieve when she screamed at it, but it didn’t spray. And when the skunk came back the next night with a friend, no one screamed…because they’re actually really cute when they don’t sneak up on you!

It was a great wedding!

And I didn't even post pics of the band. They began their set wearing Nacho Libre masks!

Knives? Fire? SKUNK?
Well anyway, they look happy, and that's the most important thing. Uncle Jay and Aunt JoanMarie rock, I've been told.

I am currently reading "Absinthe and Flamethrowers: The Art of Living Dangerously", which includes projects about making our own gunpowder and flamethrowers. Needless to say, I approve of all such JABO activities. Thanks y'all!

(I write this from the lovely Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, where they house and feed us for several days cuz our band plays here Sunday. Sweet.)

So we've got parental approval?

I guess it's time to kick things up a notch!

How awesome is that! I may steal that idea if I ever get married. ;)
