What a fun afternoon! Sister Roxy drove down from Olympia as expected, but instead of her husband Rich, she brought a great surprise -- Cousin Cathy! (She's the one across the table in the plaid shirt.) I have not seen her for many years, and it was a delight to have her here. Later in the afternoon, our oldest daughter Mary Mae arrived from Mount Vernon, Washington.
After the Open House, Todd barbecued chicken for family and a few friends. The youngsters all ended up in the hot tub while the rest of us had a good time visiting and telling stories.
