"Wish We Could Be There Party"

Last month we had a "Wish We Could Be There Party" for Philip & Katie Bradrick's wedding.
We got to gather all the different people that wanted to go, but could not afford to go to the wedding.
The wedding ceremony was broadcasted live online. I hooked up the computer to the TV so we could view it.
We all had a wonderful time watching the the wedding and fellowshiping with each other. 
It was wonderful to see another Godly wedding, and another Godly family beginning their life together. 

Mom made several cakes and decorated them to look like wedding cakes.

All our friends that came to the party.
The McKinley family.
Some of the Pollack clan.
The Allen family.
The Langford family.
Part of the Reilly family
And the Bryan family

Hanging on the edge

This bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway. 
It has a spectacular view of Donner Lake and Donner Pass on Route 80.
A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (Old Hwy 40 at Donner Summit, Truckee) on Saturday when two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear into jumping over the edge of the bridge.  Somehow the bear caught the ledge (see unbelievable photo, above) and pulled itself to safety.  Authorities decided that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound asleep on the ledge.After securing a net under the bridge the bear was tranquilized, fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.

 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. Psalms 139: 2-3
