We came up to Lynden last night and I rented a Uhaul trailer this morning. Markus and a bunch of his friends came up separately to visit a friend at Western. So they all came over to the Eide compound for brunch. John grilled pancakes on the outdoor grill. In the afternoon, we went over to see mom and take her out for dinner. We took a drive to Blaine and ate at an Italian restaurant. She seems to be doing well. It's funny how she enjoys talking so much, after being out-talked by dad for 50 years.
