Thankful Thursday


Mabel & Hazel said I could have the blog today to tell you about the most amazing weekend.

We are so thankful that we were able to gather with family to celebrate the wedding of our granddaughter.


Cierra & Jacob are both in the Air Force 
and stationed at Travis Air Force Base in California

They chose to get married on Sunday July 1st
at Donner Lake, Truckee, CA



My son found a large cabin through Airbnb 
that was only 10 minutes from the lake
It was large enough for Stan & I, my son & wife, their oldest daughter Shea, youngest son Rob and son Bodie who flew down from Canada where he is coaching baseball for the summer. There was also the other grandma, an aunt & uncle, the maid of honor, and the photographer all staying at the cabin. It was so fun to all be together. 

Jacob stayed at place nearby with his Dad & sister that flew in from Pennsylvania, the best man & his wife  
and two of his good friends. 

We are so thankful everyone arrived safe!

Saturday evening we went to the lake
 to take some pre-wedding photos



Now let me tell you about the photographer
She is the daughter of my son's boss. 
A very talented and special young woman
she jumped at the chance to photograph
 this special weekend for us and flew into Reno 
with air miles donated by her dad. 
She stayed at the cabin with us and felt just like family
I am so thankful to have met this lovely woman


It was a beautiful evening 
as the soon to be newlyweds strolled on the beach



Stan captured this great photo with his phone


Then it was the big day



Hair and makeup done 



Her Mom helping Cierra into her dress


A hug from Dad and it is time to go



It was the most amazing day



Enjoy this short wedding highlight video!



 So thankful for my beautiful granddaughter 
and this wonderful young man who adores her.
May they have many years of happiness together


My heart is so full!

Dogs must have two passing ACT1 scores in order to earn the ACT1 title. Both passing scores may be obtained under the same judge/evaluator. 

• Minimum allowable score required to qualify = 85 
• Performance will be judged as set forth in Chapter 5, Sections 4, 5 & 6 with the following exceptions: - Run-outs and Refusals will not be judged - More than 3 attempts at the next correct obstacle (ascent side of contacts) will result in a Mandatory Elimination and will be signaled with an “F” by the judge/evaluator. - 
The 4 –Paw rule is not in effect.

The course must be completed in less than 60 seconds. 
ACT1 Minimum Obstacles Requirements: • Quantity =10-12 


ACT1 Test Run #1

ACT1 Test Run #2


They re-numbered the course in a different order
