Riding on the Big Wheel on the Seattle waterfront on her birthday was a big treat for Claire and her friends.
Patricia was surprised to see me upon first entering Suzzane’s house for her 90th birthday party. I had gone up to Victoria just for her party. One does not turn ninety very often and I had to be there to see her face. I have uploaded all of the photographs to a web gallery here: birthday party photos Below are a sample of a few of my favorites.
CLaire turns 9 Tuesday and so last weekend she invited 4 friends over for a movie, dinner and slumber party. Right after arriving on the school bus the girls enjoyed a snack of crepes with peanut butter and jam. The they headed out for a movie and dinner at Rubies Dinner in Redmond.
Next morning they were still all smiles after watching another movie on DVD in a messy fun room.

So it came to pass that Ema was turning 14 and she decided to celebrate it with a party for 80 of her friends at Carkeek Park last Friday. They were all over the park most of the time and I was lucky to get this group of 40+ of them together for this large group picture. I hardly had time for making pictures as I was busy cooking hot dogs and serving hot chocolate to one and all who came over to the grill. It was good to see them all having fun running up the mountain, around the meadow and over the train tracks to the beach. Some even went into the frigid waters of the Puget Sound.
When I first tried to get together a group photo the light was great but it took quite a while getting everyone in the meadow to come together around Ema who is sitting in this shot below. By the time they got it together the sun was down in the clouds and never returned. so the light up on the large group is a little flat. So it goes.
In any case the view of the sunset over the sound and Olympic mountains was wonderful and I had to make some frames of it before I went back to grill duty.
Oh. Just one more thing. I did get Ema to pause for a second for a quick headshot.
