All At Once...

Okay, I'm going to update a bunch ALL AT ONCE....simply because I'm a pain in the rear-end. Actually, my fire crew is supposed to hit the board Monday, meaning we may go out Tuesday, and if that happens I'll never get around to it all. What I will promise is to make a slide show of both the wedding and fire season, but for now its just previews...

First: We have been doing controlled burns. Very cool by the way to learn about fire behavior and what happens when forests aren't allowed to burn naturally...Especially in high wind conditions when the weather has changed very quickly:

What the forest looked like BEFORE we set it on fire...










And as we were lighting it up...

As the weather begins to change....





This is when it sort of got a little out of control. However it was well within our burn area so all is well. Imagine if this had burned unsupervised?





Okay, Now the weekend of the wedding. First I'd like, no LOVE, to thank both Eric and Heather for coming out Thursday night for a few drinks! It was great seeing you both! For everyone else...I KNOW it was a work night and I'd love to try and catch up with everyone again maybe this winter if i make it back. It's so nice to be able to hang out with old friends. I don't hang out with anyone here!

The weekend was a whirlwind of activity. The rehearsal was at 2pm Friday, Dinner, then discovering my strapless bra had 'disappeared' from my bag en route to Michigan...so I had to find one at Meijers at 11pm. It didn't fit. Better than nothing though. Saturday I moaned at 9am about paying $65 for a hairdo I really didn't like. The woman told me I wasn't getting what I wanted. I told her for $65 I should be able to get whatever I wanted. She then used my head as a bobby pin cushion. Now that's a Bizatch.

The wedding was perfect. I really don't know how else to explain it. I somehow managed to look very cranky in every impromptu picture taken of me, but really I wasn't. I was very happy. I have some pics from my Aunt. I'll get mine eventually.

The bride and groom. I adore her. She is awesome. I don't know why she married my brother. He is VERY lucky. But seriously they are a great couple.






The brother and sister of the Bride and Groom. maybe I was being stabbed by a hair pin? But the dress is pretty!
Me and my Aunt Barb. She taught me EVERYTHING about horses. I love her. See, I was too happy!
Ok, that should be reasonable for now. Remember, it's summer. I am not around my own computer very often!

You look great! I like the hair too, but then again I can't see the back.

You look great. Your hair looks cute to me, but I wouldn't be a fan of the pins poking my head.

I just read about the downed helicopter in CA - I know you have said what a tight group firefighters are and I just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers! Stay safe!
