Chuck flew up to Vancouver on Saturday to help his mother celebrate her 81st birthday. We had more of a birthday festival as Bill likes to say. We celebrated for 4 plus days with plenty of food, wine, margaritas and dessert. Bill always loves when his brother comes to visit. He tries to think of all kinds of ways to keep him entertained. On Sunday, the three of us went out to the Gorge to do a little hiking. The guys did the whole 7 mile round trip between Bonneville Dam and Cascade Locks. I did a one way trip. We ate breakfast in Cascade Locks and then the guys hiked back to the car and I explored Cascade Locks a bit while I waited for them to come back and pick me up.
After we came home, we worked on Grandma's birthday dinner. We wanted Cindy and Jim to join us for dinner and Sunday was the day that they could come. So we celebrated a couple of days early with them and skyped Tom so that he could say hi to all of us too.
On Bev's actual birthday--the guys took her to Olive Garden for lunch and then we all went out to Mexico Lindo for dinner. Had a great visit with the brother-in-law!
