The festivities were held at my nephew Ben's home in Winlock, Washington.
There was lots of visiting and eating.
We were blessed to my great nieces, Maggie and Della with us, granddaughters of my brother Hank.
Auntie Jordan loves her nieces and they love her.
Their beautiful mother Jessica has her hands full while her husband is away going to military school, but she is doing a great job, with the help of her family.
Siblings and cousins gathered together.
Old friends surprised Laurie in what was a sort-of-surprise party.
More (Mohr) cousins joined the party.
Young cousins wore themselves out playing.
And there was birthday cake!

While we were partying, Jill was delivering her kids to scout camps. She dropped Isaac off for his ride in the morning and then she and the girls visited Snoqualmie Falls before taking them to Girl Scout camp at Camp River Ranch.
Then as we settled in at home to walk, garden and watch political conventions, Jill went mountain climbing.
Monday she drove to Mt Baker and climbed to base camp.
Then on Tuesday she and her companion climbed the 5000 ft glacier climb to the summit.
Then she climbed back down, got in her car and drove home, all on the same day!
Tom and I have been watching a lot of both the Republican and Democratic conventions. We will be glad to have it all come to an end tomorrow. I'll write a post about it them.
Then I can get back to spending more time in my garden.
