Happy Birthday to Our Daughter Jane!

Jane had a birthday over this passed weekend.  We don't get to see her often and miss her greatly.  In the photo above she looks very serious but I love this picture.  She is such a beautiful woman if I must say so myself.  Her beauty extends to a kind heart and warm personality.

The birthday boys in our family for this month were Brent (our son-in-law) and Jack. (our Grandson)

The photo below show Brent with Angie last week on Brent's birthday.

There is a story in the photo with Jack and Myles. First of all, Jack just loves basketball.  Ask him anything regarding basketball or anything about professional basketball or college basketball. He will probably be able to give you the answer. Jack's parents used to work with Myles's mother many years ago.  Myles's Dad was the disc Jockey at John and Casey's wedding. Myles is seven feet tall and is the number 2 pick for high school basketball in the US. Jack knew of Myles but never had the chance to meet him.  John and Casey arranged a birthday dinner with Myles's family and their family on Jack's birthday as a surprise.  And what a surprise!  And guess what!  It was Miles's birthday also.

Happy Belated Birthday to all of the March birthday boys!

We spent the day with Ronnie and Linda at Mount Rainier the day before we left for the beach.  It is so beautiful!  Actually, there are no words to describe the beauty. Below the mountain was a little business area with old box cars painted in primary colors and converted into a hotel.  There were also a couple of small fast food restaurants.  It seemed like a really nice place to spend the night sometime.  Should one plan to drive up the mountain they would need to allow a day to drive up, stop at the top for a while to look around, and drive back.  Especially if one would take the wrong way down the mountain.

We spent four nights at Pacific Beach in Washington sharing a rental next to the ocean.  I was most relaxed and enjoyed every minute.  It was really nice sharing this experience with Ronnie and Linda.  One of the mornings we drove on a nearby beach.  Everyone was flying a kite, (except me) walking the dog and having fun on the beach.  It was a cool windy morning of sixty five degrees.  I sat on a lawn chair and soaked in the sun while listening to the waves.  Need I say anything more?
