We enjoyed a festive national birthday celebration with PG, Deb and Maggie coming for a visit. We indulged in Sandpoint's finest parade with fire engines aplenty for Henry and enough troublesome righty-politics onlookers to make you gag. The evening offered an amazing gathering of more lefty-folks at a friend's BBQ and then fireworks at the beach. Sadly, Henry went quite excited but as soon as the first bang sounded, he hid his head in my shirt for the rest of the coloful, but loud display. The weekend sure had the feel of summer!
