Coeur d'Alene with Dan and Judy Mulder

This weekend we met up with long time friends, Dan and Judy Mulder from Townsend, Montana. We met in Post Falls, ID for a couple of nights. It was great catching up with each other's lives. We were particularly interested in their recent trip to China where they witnessed the wedding of daughter Emily and David. They flew to the northeast corner of the country to be with David's family who are Uyghur, an ethnic minority speaking a Turkish dialect. It was quite an adventure for them as one can well imagine. We were able to watch a video of the wedding which included a Mulder rendition of Uyghur dancing! Our constant conversation took many settings as we soaked up the sun on walks from Coeur d'Alene to Riverside Park in Spokane. It was a great weekend of renewing friendship and anticipating the next phase of our lives.
