Weekend in Cle Elum

My mom and dad had a core group of friends in high school, and somehow, the group has managed to remain close over the years. We call them the "dinner group," and they've been through a lot together. Now, the kids have kids and it's a pretty big group when you get everyone together. About a week ago, we spent a weekend together in Cle Elum at the Huntley Lodge--an amazing place with a central lodge and clusters of cabins. We had the place to ourselves so we explored the grounds, lounged around the outdoor kitchen, ate lots of food and played golf (or for the non-golfers, went into town). For a large group (and a few dogs), it was the perfect place.

I was in charge of setting up the timer on the camera so we could all get in for a group shot. It took awhile (and lots of running back and forth), but we finally got it.

I'm thankful for these friends (and for those who couldn't make it, we missed you!).
