Banniversary Week 2014

As usual, it’s 10 days of celebration and reflection.  It starts with Margo’s August 20th birthday, Kent’s August 28th birthday, and our August 31st anniversary. It’s usually a low key week in spite of the hype and hoopla.  But this time, we took a day trip up to Mt St Helens on Kent’s birthday, to take advantage of a nearly cloud-free day.

Catching up with the Northern Cal cousins

A dinner stop with Fran Edgerley, Walt Edgerley (and the kids), Kim Lewis Krause, Chad Krause (and kids), and Andy Hirakawa.Unfortunately, the kids had too much popcorn at the movies before coming, so they couldn’t stick around long enough for me to remember to get my camera out. Also naturally, I have more pictures of Fran & Walt’s kids than anyone else. At least I’m consistent!
