birthdays and anniversaries
September has been fairly busy for us. Both of Scott’s parents have birthdays within 2 days of each other followed by Cindy and her sister’s birthday 2 days after that! Scott’s father turned 81 (though he still insists he’s only 79) while his mother turned 80 this year. We all celebrated by a large family gathering in Estes Park, CO. 15 of us! Carole’s sister and Scott’s cousins and their families came out to celebrate. Beautiful fall colors coupled with elk calling and fishing in Rocky Mountain National Park were a steady theme for the weekend. Cindy made the tough decision to spend her birthday with Scott’s family while missing her twin sister who was in a beach house in North Carolina with friends.
Scott’s parents also celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. They took a trip to Italy to celebrate. Then Scott and his dad took a snorkeling trip to Roatan, Honduras. Just the two of them. They enjoyed themselves immensely.
Now it’s mid-October and we’re approaching our wedding anniversary. We wait for the rainy season to come to Seattle and plan our next trip.
