This is the bed and breakfast we stayed at compliments of Kate's family. The view was so beautiful.
We had a rare surprise to see a Solar Eclipse. It is hard to see the circle of color around the sun but Kate's dad took some fantastic pictures with his big-daddy camera. He said he would e-mail us the pictures. I'll re-post them if he does.
Evie has been patiently waiting for cake since this afternoon. Ethan went to bed a half hour ago and Evie who was almost falling asleep at the table said she's not tired, she can wait for cake. She brought the cakes in to show Clarke and Hot mama (the nick name for Kate's mom who is pretty)
Happy Birthday to Hot mama who turns 50 and Clarke who turns 32. Evie tipped the boxes a bit when she was carrying them so they are a little beat up. Beautiful none the less. Dylan did a good job picking them out.
The gang. Kate is in the purple coat in the front. This is her family; one sister and one brother who is married and expecting his first child soon.
We found out that Kate's mom has a fantastic voice when she started in on Karaoke. Check out the video at the end of this post. The evening was fun. The way the hotel was situated we were able to put the kids to bed and join everyone for a few shots of whiskey, followed by lots of tea and munchies. It felt like Joel and I were on a date (and young again).
