Laurelhurst Picnic

Dear Friends and Readers,

  I hope you all had a lovely Monday and are having a good week so far. Mine has been normal with nothing out of the ordinary. Aaron and I are still preparing to move and we signed the papers for the new house yesterday. Things are finally starting to feel more official.

Sunday afternoon we had an event planned at a local Rose Garden in Portland. Unbeknownst to us, there was a huge festival going on at the same time. So, after a last minute venue switcheroo, we ended up at a lovely park called Laurelhurst. The picnic ended up being perfect, despite the warmth of the afternoon, and a great time was had by all. Here are the pictures labeled with our Le Bon Ton persona names.

The Whole Group

I love how the costumes continue to improve among our group. Our captain has finally received his uniform and I know have large wigged and hat wearing buddies :-) It’s wonderful!

Well, have a great evening and rest of your week. We are having a Fourth of July party this weekend. So I should have some more costumed pics for you soon. This party, however, is going to be 1940’s Dieselpunk. I’m really looking forward to it. God Bless!

Love Lauren

Lovely all! Your costumes (and the whole group's) just keep getting better and better! I wish we had more time to play with you all...maybe in a few years when the kiddos are a bit older.

Looks like a beautiful location for an event and you all look wonderful. I am sorry your other location did not work out, but this looks like a great alternative, and I love the name "Laurelhurst". :)
