First off I want to wish Leslee a “Happy Birthday”. It’s not that we forgot it, but I neglected to mention it when I wrote my journal on June 27th. I also heard from Lena that I didn’t mention her on her birthday as well….SORRY LADIES!!! For some reason I’ve really fallen off the nightly habit of writing and I really feel guilty, strange isn’t it? I’ll try to do better, I promise.
The 4th of July was just as great as we could have ever imagined it to be. We started out the day with the Chouinard family coming over for a visit. We barbequed, started a fire in the pit, and indulged in one of our favorite desserts of “smores” before heading over to Carl and Mario’s condo. As I mentioned earlier, their condo sits on Capital Hill and overlooks the Seattle skyline,
On Saturday, Phil and Kathy flew in from Alberta.
On Tuesday the 8th, Louise and I drove the car down to Portland to join Phil and Kathy in visiting Suzie and Ricardo for a couple of days.
Our boating with Ricardo and Suzie was a blast. They had this great little restaurant on the Columbia River they wanted us to have lunch at and let me tell you, it was “Great”. It kind of reminded us of one of our favorite haunts in Cabo that all of us spent many an hour at.
