4th of July Weekend 2016

Happy short week (and happy belated birthday, USA)! I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend and off to a great July (holllllly smokes). As always when with family, we had a great weekend celebrating with my brother and his family in Seattle. The only bad news was that Ken was unable to fly out as planned due to a storm on Friday night in NYC. After 4 hours on the tarmac and his flight being canceled, he sadly didn’t make it to the west coast. We missed him but will be reunited with him for 10 days on Friday! Here is a recap of our weekend!

 

We went sailing in the evening on Lake Washington (pictured: son Cruzzie, brother Giora).

Lots of cuddle time with dog, Romeo. I want to adopt Romeo and take him home with me. He is my best friend now.

Now today we are headed back to Eugene, for an even shorter week due to an upcoming trip to CA on Friday morning (two days of our camp / normal Oregon routine)….Thanks to my Proskurowski family for a terrific weekend. We love you and already miss you! See you in a couple of weeks.
