It rained through the night last night, and the overcast drizzle is still on. And, as is always the case, camp could really use this. I love it so much, the greens are greener, the browns are browner (I know that last one soundsweird) but those of you who have experienced mountain rain understand. We are currently having french toast made from the banana bread that I baked last night. It's blissful.

they're in!

So last night we got an e-mail saying that all of our pictures were in. There were over 1200! We got started pretty late and thus became tired, not getting through them all, but what we saw was fantastic, it brought back some great memories that were tough to recall without some kind of photographic evidence. Its time to pres some more coffee and continue the moving in, but the wedding album is in sight, and that's pretty hot!

under a week

yesterday we received an e-mail from our wedding photographer, Chris Humphreys, teling us that our entire portfolio of pictures will be ready in under a week. We are pretty stoked.

first day off at camp

Although I had them during the summer, it feels a bit different now. The pace is so much slower and it is pretty enjoyable. Tori and I are pondering a trip to San Luis Obispo to see one of our freinds, Josh Krane, play at a coffee shop. As is always the case (at least as of late) there is also plenty of unpacking and moving in to do. All of our things are now over at the infirmary, it is just a matter of finding a place to put them. I think it is time to eat something, or maybe press some coffee...

new beginings!

I am writing to you from our new home! There are piles of stuff and tonight I am going to build a bookcase, but we are moving in! I should probably keep this one short, but I was a little too excited to not say anything. We are still going to be in the lodge for a at least another night, but that will change soon as well. Off to build!

we're almost there

Tori and I are under a week away from being able to move in to our first place together. We are going to be living in what is the infirmary (the other 9 months) here at camp. It has been quite the process moving all of our stuff around from place to place/ state to state, but we are almost there. Tori is going back to Sacramento this week for a doctors appointment (for the record she is feeling much better)and she will also be bringing the remainder of our things back with her for the impending move. It is going to be a lot of fun turning the infirmary into our home, and making it our own...

adventures in accommo

I love being back. Accommo is so cool. There's something about the scrubbing of a toilet or the moping of a floor that gets my juices flowing. The accommo team this summer is pretty sweet. It has been a privilege to see them in action and I have enjoyed my time teamed up alongside of them. Tonight is the "accommoque" (accommo team barbecue) and it should be a pretty rockin time. However, it is pretty strange jumping in to a summer that was already 2/3 done, but I have felt welcome. In other news, Tori seems to be getting a little better, hopefully that trend continues...

um, basicallyyyy...

it really sucks when your wife is sick. Other than that our time here
at camp has been good. There is a pretty good vibe around the mountain
and the staff seems to be clicking really well. Also, the common fire season is quickly approaching, which is cause for much excitement.
