Today is my sister Susan's birthday and we had the opportunity to host a celebration with her children and grandchildren. Jack and Sue came from Olympia; Aaron, Jen and their two boys Jorren and Caden came down from Monroe; and Sarah, Mike and Anika from Bellevue, all came over for a midday meal. It was great seeing everyone, especially Mike and Sarah in their new role as parents. Our house received a preview of future grandchildren as the grandneice/nephews explored the environment. Caden is following in his brother Jorren's footsteps and Anika is a bundle of energy.
