Drew & Nichole's Wedding

Friday July 27, we drove to Stevenson, WA in the Columbia Gorge for the wedding of our friends Drew Coulton & Nichole Alhadeff.  On the way there we took a route around Mt. Hood we had never taken before.  It was a beautiful drive with lots of great views of the mountain.

We stayed at the same hotel as a lot of our friends from Antarctica, so we all convoyed to the wedding site.  Here are Bill, Pete, Kim, Amy, Bija, Rebecca, Elizabeth & Kelly.

Someone handed out fake mustaches to the Antarctic folks to wear when Drew & Nichole walked down the aisle.  Here's Natalie and Chris with his purple stash.

Saturday afternoon they had a picnic at Mt. Tabor, which is a city park in Portland.  Here we are with Elizabeth and Amy.

Some people played a different version of croquet using a sledge hammer and bowling balls.
