The big day.....

 7:40 am - Tuesday - June 1st - Seal Rock, OR - 52° F, 100% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north.....crystal clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 67° F!!!  Must have brought some of that warm Spokane climate home with us. 

On this date in 2015 I was at the Emeral Bay vista point in Lake Tahoe with my good friend Tom McCloud......↴

TLE and I collapsed into bed Sunday night around 11:30 pm.  I was so tired when I got up Monday morning I decided to write about Sunday after we got home.  It was a wonderfully exhausting 4 days in Spokane, and as I write this morning (Tuesday) it almost seems surreal that I was in room 1214 of the Historic Davenport Hotel just 24 hours ago getting packed and dressed for our flight home.

Sunday morning, the day of the wedding, TLE and I took a walk to a local coffee house, Brews Bros. Coffee Bar, for some pastries and coffee...

.....while we were enjoying our coffee I glanced out the window to see my brother, Philip, and his family walking by, so we finished up and joined them for a walk down to the Spokane River before returning to the hotel.  I spied this cool building along the way....

.....the wedding was scheduled for 3 pm, and what wedding really starts on time?.....

.....around 3:40 pm the groom with groomsmen, and maids of honor arrived....

Left to right: Atticus, Brayden, Adrian, and Gemma....all grandkigs, grand nieces and grand nephews

.....and then it was time for the bride to be to enter......

Here comes the bride

The 'Kiss'

....the wedding reception began promptly at 6 pm at the Manito Country Club....it was an outdoor affair and the weather was perfect......

First dance

The dance floor was crowded

A splendid Spokane evening for an outdoor reception

......when the dancing began the dance floor was jammed.  I don't know if I have ever seen such a crowded dance floor at a wedding reception.  We ate, drank, danced and laughed.....just as it should be at a wedding reception......until well after 10 pm.  By the time TLE and I arrived back at the hotel we were exhausted.  We took off our wedding attire and collapsed into bed.  After 4 days we were toast mentally and physically, but in a most happy way.
