Post wedding hooplas

Ryder decided to hang with an older friend, Thor, at the reception.

So, afterward we hung out with Alex 2 at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. For some reason, Ryder had to point out every fish he saw.
Ryder then managed to pounce on the first girl he found.

Later on, Ryder had a little too much fun at the local Irish bar (note: that's toilet paper on his lone shoe).
Needless to say, he was ready for some shut eye after a huge day!

Aunty Becca's Wedding

Thinking about the right time to dance...
Yea, I grabbed the bouquet

Recently we traveled quite far to Newport, Oregon. A fun part of that trip was our stop at Breitenbush Hotsprings, east of Salem in the Cascades. Ryder had a blast in the hot springs and a late night 90's dance party. Unfortunately cameras aren't thought of too kindly in this natural eden.

The trip was for the wedding of Rachel's sister, Becca. Daddy (Alex) bonded with Ryder for most of trip as mommy was the matron of honor.
