I am going to toot our nephew's horn here.
Last night, we went to dinner with my parents, my brother and sister-in-law and our nephew, Phil. Phil (his name is actually Philip James Boren III) just turned 21, and graduated from UCSB (in three years). He has worked hard in college, and was offered 4 jobs before he graduated! He will be moving to the Bay area to begin working, after a summer of travel and relaxation. Well done, Phil! We are so proud of you.
Here is one of my favorite photos of Phil and Katie, from Father's Day 2007 (she loved this photo, too):This was one of those photos about which I said to her, "You have got some pretty cute guy-cousins," to which she replied, "I know, that's the problem: they're my COUSINS!"
...and here are a few photos from dinner last night. It was a lovely dinner, with lots of laughs.
Phil, Jim and Caroline are heading to China for a family vacation/graduation gift. Bon Voyage and traveling mercies to them!
P.S. to smileygirl: See the sun shining in blue the evening sky? If you zoom in, you might see Mt. Rainier in the distance, over my dad's shoulder. (This place is on the shores of Lake Washington.) There is hope!
