Day 1 - Arrive in Eugene, OR, visit with family and prep for the wedding
We flew into Eugene, OR which is about an hour away from where my sister-in-law's wedding was going to be. In Eugene, we got to visit with my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. We also went for a trip to Safeway. My husband grew up with Safeway grocery stores his whole life. He used to absolutely love their chicken fingers from the deli and missed them a lot when he moved to the east coast. He was very excited to visit Safeway when we got there to get chicken fingers, but was disappointed to find out that they changed the recipe and weren't as good anymore. What a bummer! But we still had fun hanging out with my brother-in-law and his girlfriend while we ate the disappointing new recipe at their house. I enjoyed visiting with their cats. Here's me with their newest addition, Lola who was born without a tail.

The next day we spent visiting with family and doing more prep for the wedding. A lot of family and friends went out to the wedding site to help with setting up. Here is a picture of my husband's uncle who was the wedding coordinator. He created an amazing handmade chandelier out of mason jars to hang over the new bride and groom while they eat their wedding dinner! And here's a picture of the boys getting hay bails to the right places for the drink stations.
