The lilies are done now, but the black-eyed Susan vine is headed up to our second floor. The red dahlia is full of buds, and the indoor plant that's called Moses in the boat has lots of boats with flowers. Don't you just love this time of year?😄

It's been 57 years since we started our life together along with lots of love and laughter, plus three children and five grandchildren. We have been truly blessed!
On our honeymoon, we drove to San Diego, CA, in two cars. Dick worked for General Dynamics and I taught school in Poway, CA. Because I had sixth graders who couldn't read, I went back to school and earned my Masters and then worked as a reading teacher under the Miller-Unruh Act. Back then when you became pregnant, you had to quit at 6 months! (Dick's mom was engaged for 9 years because back then, a teacher could not be married!) After 12 years in San Diego, we moved to Seattle with our 3 young children and have lived in the same house ever since. Our 3 kids are all grown now and are busy raising our grandkids, all 5 of them. We will soon gather altogether for another family reunion, a tradition we started many years ago. Since this photo three more grandkids have been added. This is a photo of a reunion with my family and my sister's family in 2012 on the St. Croix River in Minnesota.
And now we are both retired, Dick from Boeing, and me from several different adult literacy programs. We were privileged to participate in several wonderful tours with our church choir and have enjoyed lots of travel adventures. Yes, it's been a great 57 years! As I said earlier, we have been truly blessed.

There are two birthdays very soon in our family, so I made a couple of bracelets.
And then when I looked outside, I saw this critter having a snack in our yard. Luckily, he let Dick take his picture!
This is at least the third time he had visited us recently!
