you should really come here; seattle is so nice in the summer

that’s what we told ned’s parents: how about instead of us coming to hotlanta in august, you come to seattle. it’s SO nice here. the weather is always great. and what happened? we got the only rain that’s fallen in months. of course. they were great sports, though, and we did manage to get out between rain showers. we had family over for dinner in the backyard, watched the baby crawl around in the parched grass, and had a sing-along. josephine did a puppet show with the products of the puppet show she attended. we walked over to josephine’s elementary school playground (and got sprinkled on). we played games, posed for photos, visited great (great) aunts, and fed the baby a pickle. all around, a great visit, rain drops and all.

    Love the pickle photo! Also, love the blackberries, free for the picking. It doesn’t get any better than that. Too bad about the rain for Ned’s folks, but I’m glad you talked them into coming to Seattle. Love your website, Oma. It’s been too long since I’ve visited.
