Our warm summer days turned into hot summer days with temp into 100 degrees! It was even that hot on the coast on Friday, Aug 19, at Astoria, Garibaldi, Pacific City and Seaside 98! Inland it was hot so people thought they'd escape to the beach. Oh my, hotels were calling other towns to see if there was any vacancies at other beach towns? No! Megan wondered how much ice cream was sold at the Tillamook Cheese factory yesterday? I'm thankful for air conditioning in buildings and cars and our houses. Thankful for a/c at memorial service at a church we were at today. So I can't complain. Much! :0}
Last evening I was going through some older photo files in search of older photos to share, but I didn't find what I was looking for. I did come across photos of Toketee Falls that I took Aug 2010. Phil and I had been in southern Oregon where we visited Crater Lake. On our journey home we stopped at a few waterfalls along the way. I really like this photo on a warm day, where it's 94 degrees today, not quite so hot as predicted. I'd looked through Crater Lake photos...oh looked so cool, but it's 91 degrees there at 3:30 PM. I remember the day we were there it was quite warm and hiking up to Sun Notch and photographing Phantom ship.
This is a summer weekend summary in photos. I'm working on this in the cool and drinking my cool tea that I made into my own tea achino...not unlike a frappicino, but my style...hot tea, then sweetener, then milk to my liking and an ice cube! And a cookie since it's snack time (Sat afternoon,Aug 20th).

|Group activity. Making a bride's dress out of toilet paper. I made the bows and Megan W. is the model.|
|The "brides" and their dresses. Middle girl's dress came apart. But someone said it was for the reception afterwards. That created a ripple of laughter throughout the room! The bride to the far left got most votes!|
|Briana showing off a lovely quilt made by one of the ladies of our church. Dinah does a great job on all her quilts!|
|Briana relaxing finally and opening a gift. She's getting married this weekend and we are attending the wedding. I'm helping at the wedding with the photo booth for guests. That will be fun!|
|Lovely flowers and giraffes.|
