An Extended Vacation.

After a flight delay I got into Portland late on Sunday evening and decided to continue my weekend through Tuesday and I am so happy I did. As they always do, Kassi and Drew opened what has become known as my vacation home doors once more giving me a day full of coffee, beer, food, and continuous laughter. Seriously, these two are the absolute best. 

Below is a compilation of us trying to take photos before dinner, 
but mostly just laughing and doing weird things with our faces and limbs. Enjoy.
That's officially a wrap on my week(end)/beginning. It was a great one.

Not Pictured: A surprise visit/dinner with Chloe and friends and waking up with a really gross cold, and lets be honest no one wants to see that.

Wedding Weekend in Washington.

This last weekend was spent in East Wenatchee, Washington for my cousin Nick's beautiful wedding.
In proper family fashion we made a whole weekend out of it and managed to fit in all sorts of family fun! 

We started with visiting my Aunt and Uncle's gorgeous property on the Columbia River. 

Then we decided to fancy up a bit for the wedding festivities. 
With a family as big as mine, they really know how to make an entrance ^^^

We were only missing one of the Perius siblings! 
I'm telling you, these North Dakota people really know how to pull through for a party ;)

Lucky for me, I got to spend my last day soaking up some sun in this beautiful pool with my super awesome cousins! I used to spend a month of every summer in Washington with my cousins so it is always such a blessing when I get to go back, even if it's just for a quick weekend. I am so thankful to be a part of a family who makes it a priority to come together. We all travel from around the country just to see each other no matter what the occasion, and I love you all so much for it.

Jamboree '14

This was the 18th year my family packed up their tents and headed to Sweet Home for the Oregon Jamboree, and this was the year I finally joined them! We saw Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, and Billy Currington to name a few so I already decided I would be the newest part of the tradition, I mean,  it was just too much fun not too. 
^^^ Let's all just take a moment and remember Tim McGraw is in his 50's.
This family, that music, and those memories, they're just the greatest. I love you, family!
