They had croquet, checkers, and Scrabble set up... so cute!
Uncle Bill and MamaJune chatting before pictures.
We weren't sure who all would be at the wedding (except for our family and Sarah Crump!) so we were surprised to see Justin there as the photographer!
After camp, we met my family in Johnson City, TN, for my cousin's wedding.
We didn't mean to match so well!
At 1PM, it was POURING down rain, but it completely cleared up by the time we got to the farm at 5!
MamaJune was SO glad that Hunter shaved his beard!
Dad and Aunt Kaye from California

Thursday evening we returned to the little Bouchon, this time with Matt and Laura. The couple at the restaurant remembered us from the week before. After dinner Doug and I walked around Bellecour.
Friday Doug had a “sortie” with his class. After we met back and had lunch, we took the tram to the Hendrixes. We enjoyed fresh raspberries from their garden and homemade whipped cream. We were also able to use internet for a while and print of some confirmations for Paris. Friday evening once we got back to the apartment, we were hot and tired and didn’t feel like making supper. So, on a whim, we decided to go back to the bouchon one last time. The man was very friendly and joked that he would give us a card so that if we ate there 10 times, we would get a dinner free. Afterwards we walked around Vieux Lyon... we saw several people coming out of Cathedral Saint Jean, so we went in and there was actually a chorus singing... from California! They were good, but Doug and I agreed that the DLHS chorus would have been even better.
Saturday, we went on an all day outing with the Hendrixes. Pamela is as organized as Sarah Thomas, as energetic as Mrs. Branch, and as generous as Nana, so outings planned by her are very fun. We drove east to Annecy, a little village and the cleanest lake in Europe. It is in the pre-Alpes. It is so weird to see water the color that we see in St. Martin, but surrounded by mountains. It was beautiful. We walked around the antique market in the old town and then drove to an inn for a very fancy lunch. We then drove to an 800 year old Chateau. The tour of the Chateau was theatrical… interesting and entertaining. We went up to the top of a mountain and got a GREAT view of Mont Blanc. It was a clear day, so you could see it really well.
