Donna and I were blessed with many visitors over the long holiday weekend. We had friends and family in town from Nashville, Las Vegas, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles along with dozens of folks who live here in western Washington that we hosted at several events.
Today's blog post is just a few photographs mostly for the benefit of those we invited over who couldn't make it due to work or other summer plans.
Left to right, me, my Dad, and my brother John. Taken on the ferry from West Seattle, pulling into the Island.
The Atomic dog sleeping in the guest room to be near my dad.
My friend Dave with Sophie and Godzilla.
My friend Christine with Happy.
Donna's dad Howard and my dad on our friend Eric's boat taking an Independence Day cruise around the Island. Thanks, Eric! And have you ever seen two guys more excited to be boating?
Dave, stealing my wife. That's Dave's painting on the wall too. He is one of our favorite artists. Get him while he is cheap!
My brother at our July 3rd party. It rained quite a bit that morning but cleared up nicely for the outdoor event that night. Whew.
I've mentioned the 1905 waterfront place we plan to restore. The boat ride was my first chance to get a picture of it from the backside. That's what she said.
My dad, cutting his birthday cakes on July 4th. When you get to be his age, one cake is not enough. Happy 70th though!!! You kicked Tim Russert's ass.
And finally, a few random fireworks shots from the Island's display. Taken from the yard of the new place. I hope everyone else had a safe and happy holiday weekend too!
