Recently I was blessed with the visit of my sister Tanya and nephew Oscar. They took the train from Seattle to Portland, which was a thrill for Oscar.
Only hours later my cousin Eric and wife Karen and their daughters Julianna and Sophia pulled into my driveway.
It was great to spend time with everybody. The big thrill for me was to watch Julianna and Oscar riding bikes and trikes in my backyard. I knew there was a good reason to have a large concrete patio.
