I’m Back from the Beach

We made it back to Oregon City yesterday and this is the first Morning I will have a little time to write. First off, I have tested my blood sugar or weighed myself in 3 days, so lets take a look at the results.

Blood Sugar- 118, Weight- 180.0

Obviously a few things are off, but overall it is not too bad. I ate like crap and drank too much so I am not too surprised that both my blood sugar and weight is up. I only have another few days and I will be passed all of it. I will be driving two of our parties back to the airport today, one in a few hours and the other tonight. We will still have another party who will be staying with us over the weekend when they return from exploring the Pacific Northwest.

The wedding was an incredible event and the weather was perfect for an outside venue. Everyone had a great time and my son and his new bride are now on a honeymoon in Hawaii.
The stay at the beach house in Neskowin was pretty awesome and all of my meal plans worked out incredibly well. Although I do like spending quiet time when I get the chance to get away this trip was not like that. As we were pretty much hosting the event it was a constant battle to keep things in perspective. On the other hand seeing the kids get together with their children from all over the country was such a joy. It was a balancing act of four generations all vacationing in the same house and it really worked and everyone had the time of their lives. I have selected some photo’s that I took of some of the beauty of the area that we were in. I hope you enjoy them.
