The 50th Bridgefest parade





































It's tourist season and perhaps that's why it seems like there's a festival every weekend. This one was a big one -- Bridgefest. Houghton and Hancock celebrate annually the building of the bridge that joins the two towns. The celebration also included seafood fest and we enjoyed trying some fresh fried fish and corn on the cob.

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
