Happy Independence Day!

What better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than by visiting family and eating good food! We had a quiet day at Grandma and Papa's today. Papa grilled steak and corn on the cob and veggies. Later we watched the neighborhood fireworks from the porch. The moon was dusky through the clouds. Annika didn't like the loud noises, but Gabriel was so excited. I'm glad the kids are still at the stage where they are pretty easy to please.

Yesterday we braved the heat and the crowds and went to Portland for the Blues Festival.

My folks are big fans of Reggie Houston, and he was playing two sets with different bands. It was fun to get out and do something cultural. We ended our outing by letting the kids play in a big fountain down on the waterfront before boarding the Max train and coming back home.

I hope all of you, dear family and friends, are enjoying your weekend and having a blast.
