Our dear friends Dave and Jody hosted a wonderful early birthday celebration for Dear with our family and our closest friends on Thursday evening. We gathered at their home on the beautiful Puget Sound and at Sunset began a wonderful meal that Jody prepared for us.

Dear’s birthday cake was a pudding trifle made with pound cake, strawberries, vanilla pudding, whip cream, with a little Amaretto and Brandy. Decorations on top were with fresh blackberries growing wild in our yard.

Dear takes a deep breath and….
Success! Every candle is blown out! Another glorious evening of food, fun, and fellowship at the home of hospitality.
Sunrise the following morning and last day of August.
I visited Katie at her job for a surgical practice. She had great news this week because she was accepted to the University of Washington, Bothell campus. So she will be finishing her last 2 years of college at her father’s alma mater. Go Huskies!
Waiting for the sun to set on the Last day of August on Lake Washington. Waiting for the Sun to set…
Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and beginning of September!
