PINK is really big with Ada these days, and ballet is also really big; so it was a pink ballerina birthday party to celebrate our oldest granddaughter's fourth Bday. The party was enjoyed by family and special friends, with Aunty Marti producing another award winning cake and Bjorn's friend Carl whipping out crepes. Saturday afternoon's party rolled on to well after midnight as we waited for Mike and John to return from Esther's cousin Arnold's funeral in Portland. Sunday, we witnessed Bjorn's installation as elder at Oikos and then we enjoyed Russian dumplings Pelmenis in Bellingham. A cold walk at Boulevard Park and a visit with my mom completed the busy weekend. She turns 90 next week!
