Wedding Season has Arrived!

I'm going to let the pics do the talking.  Basically I spent 2 weeks back in MD for two weddings and some time to catch up with family and friends.  I had a great time and managed to break a rib wakeboarding.  Since being back in PDX it has been work, work, and more work.  Things are busy at work!  I've also been healing up from the broken rib and just trying to get caught up on life.
(Justin's Bachelor party.  A fun day out on the water with good friends.  I got a sweet surf session in, having a long enough ride to catch, crack, and finish a beer.)
(Julie and I at Justin & Sarah's wedding.)
(The bridal party having some fun for the cameras.)
(The groom and groomsmen lookin' sharp.)
(The bridal party.  A realy low key and enjoyable ceremony held on the Miller's farm.)
(Enjoying the long walk to the alter.)
(Justin awaiting his bride.  A good friend, Frank, officiated the wedding with the assistance of his amazing wife Noreen.)
(Brook, Lauren, Lauren, Three, and Cory enjoy the post ceremony meal.)
(This is the amazing photo backdrop that Julie created for the photo gust book at the reception the day after the ceremony at Sarah's parent's house.)
(Julie and the crew looking good at the ceremony.  It was really good getting to catch up with everyone.)
(MD overlook of Great Falls.  Sadly the river level was a bit high for any falls runs.  This place really does feel like home to me.  I miss having the Falls as my playground.)
(This is upper center chute ledge on the Potomac.  I showed up for the Chute-Out, a local low key rodeo event held each month during the summer, and won!)
(The family cleaning out my grandmothers house with a yardsale.  Finding good homes for the many things my grandmother collected over the years is a tough job.  She is also greatly missed every day.)
(Justin throwing a tantrum in Salt Peter Creek behind the Edelstein's boat.)
(Me enjoying some hangtime.)
(Justin driving with Rob ready for another pull.)
(Got out on Justin's boat all day on the Sunday before Memorial day.  Got a great wake surfing session in with Justin and Dave.)
(Trying the patented kayak surf style:))
(I felt like a kid that just found the best toy ever.  Smiling from ear to ear and just goofing off behind the boat.)
(I got some great surfs in.  All wakesurf photos of me shot by Dave.)
(After the morning wake boarding session with Justin, Dave, and Julie and the wake surfing session with Justin and Dave we refueled and picked up Sarah for the trip across the bay to Fairly Creek.  We met up with Nate and his 48' hatteras named Aquilo along with a big crew from the Baltimore City Yacht Club.)
(Justin's boat tied up to the stern of Aquila in Fairly Creek.  We used the "little" boat to take people wakeboarding, skiing, and slolam skiing.  The Edelsteins had also come over with their boat and I got an amazing ride where I managed to break a rib on my third 360 of one of my best rides ever.)
(The huge volume of boats in Fairly Creek on a big sunny holiday weekend.)

(Memorial Day was Diana Borsetti's wedding, Julie's sister.  It was an amazingly beatiful wedding on the bay south of Annapolis.  My cousin Jay, chillin' in the white shirt, also was the videographer.)
(The lovely Borsetti ladies; Rebecca, Debbie, Diana, and Julie.)
(Pappa Ray giving his daughter a good luck kiss.)
(Denver on the flight home.  There aren't really any direct ways to get from PDX to Baltimore.)
