Sunday was gorgeous -with highs in the 80s
Perfect day for a picnic with Grantie Nett and Gruncle Steave -down from the San Juans – and my favorite ugly cousins from Portland.
You can see here that we were even surrounded by little daisies.
Now, I really want to wrap this up in a way that captures how nice it was to see them, high on the hill with the view of Mt St Helens, the fractured nature of conversation when 3 kids are about, and how much I love the family banter even when it dips into tension at times. But all I can really focus on was the particularly good artichoke dip that Charles brought. It was really very good.
