Jake

Our son Jake is 36 today.   That seems a little hard to believe.  I think maybe he thinks so too.
Jake is a hard worker and a hard player, and it's even better when he can combine the two!  He's a sometimes surveyor and a developing bio-fuel expert.
He loves the beaches at Rockaway and Whidbey Island,  the mountain peaks of the Cascade Mountains, and all of the hills and valleys in between.


His niece and nephew think he's just the coolest uncle.  He's a loved brother, nephew, son and grandson.
 Jake is a soccer loving fan from a soccer loving clan.  SOUNDERS!
 We celebrated with him yesterday at Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse, where he and good friend Tad kept an eye on Masters Golf and Mariners Baseball.
Happy Birthday, Jake!
