My cousin Mark and his wife Karen were here visiting the last few days. They live in Watonga, Oklahoma, where I was born. His mom was my mother's sister, Bonnie. There were 12 children in the family. 12! Rowan, Glen, Mac, Don, Betty, Florence, Harlena (Nene), Susie, Eva, Margaret, Fern & Bonnie. Mom's mom was one of 16 kids! Can you imagine? They made good time and got here a day early. We pulled one of our salmon out of the freezer and Kristi made this dinner for us while we visited on the deck. My sister Roberta joined us. How many children were in your parents family?
Kristi called us in for dinner and she'd set the table with my new dishes, I was so pleased! What a good daughter-in-law!
We lingered at the table telling family stories. My aunt Bonnie gave me this crystal vase that was my mother's mother's mother's! My great grandmother whom I never met.
Mark and Karen went to visit her 95 year old aunt yesterday and I volunteered at Multnomah Falls. It was very busy! I think a lot of people had come to Oregon to watch the eclipse and were staying on to see more of the state. My sister joined us again and we all went to Tad's Chic Dump for dinner. :-) When we returned home we sat on the deck and visited with Travis, Kristi and the boys. They headed off early this morning for Seattle, WA where they are now aboard their cruise ship headed to Alaska. I look forward to hearing their stories and seeing their photos when they return in a week. They left their 34 foot 5th wheel trailer here while they are on their cruise.
Our grandsons start school on Monday. Summer is almost over. It goes so fast. I'm trying to talk myself into going swimming today, I'm kind of tired out. LOL! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
