Just a fun impromptu day at the mall!
At the hat store…
and yours truly (obviously mid-hot-flash)
But where’s PETER? Unfortunately, he’s back at school at WSU. We really missed him today!
Guess what occasion is coming up this week? No really, just guess!
Yup! She – and this macho guy…
…are turning 21 on Tuesday!
And THEN there’s THIS “child” of ours… our shy (pffffffft!) child, Elisabeth, who apparently felt the need to show us her purchase…
…to the dismay of her father!
Yeah, we have a good time together, this family of full-fledged, of-age adults (as of this coming Tuesday, anyway).
Even Aleks and Elisabeth are buds these days. Finally.
It’s not often that Tom sports a full-fledged SMILE for the camera, but today was the kind of day he really enjoys – an impromptu day with the family, just simply having fun.
All that was missing was this guy:
But he’ll be home later this week, to pick up Shasta and bring her back to Eastern Washington while Tom and I are in Hawaii. Yes, we’re leaving in just five short days. And yes, I’ll chronicle the trip with photos each day, I promise!
