Look who showed up at the office today! Okay, so it wasn’t a surprise, since we had already driven to the airport to pick up these dear Andersons (notice the dad is missing, back in Denver working).
One by one these “stokers” did drive-bys on their way out to see the town.
…and finally Marissa.
Later the local Macys came over for dinner and some celebrating. Everyone came prepared to participate in a travelogue, since we all had summer adventures to tell about.
John and Erin told about their around-the-world adventure, which is about to begin.
We all got to work on making the ice cream to go with the birthday pie.
This might be way more fun than anybody oughta have.
The focus of our celebration: Erin turned 30! (Now all ten of our children are in their ’30s. That’ll last until Ben’s birthday next March.) She’s worth a celebration on her own, but since Cassidy is with us close to her birthday, we celebrated her too.
