Steph Turns 40 in Style

Leave it to Stephanie and Kendall to do up Steph’s 40th birthday party just right. The celebration took place at the Ballard Elk’s Club on Saturday, August 8th, and the theme was Prom Night – Forever Young.

Lots of fun was had by all. Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite. The rest are in these 3 galleries:

Raccoon in pool – Phinney Ridge

During the recent heat-wave we had a nocturnal visitor to our daughter’s backyard pool. Not only did this raccoon thoroughly trash the pool itself, by the time it was through with its swim, it had dragged the garden hose over to the pool in an attempt to refill it with water. We caught a little bit of his antics on film though our bedroom window.

Elsie’s first haircut

On a sunny Seattle afternoon in the merry month of May, Elsie got her golden locks trimmed for the very first time. Sandy had pondered the style (bob) and the timing (now) long enough and took scissors to hand, Stella shot video, Frances gathered curls into a ziplock for posterity’s sake, Aunt Steffi offered artistic guidance, and Elsie put on a brave face and sat through the ordeal as if she’s been to the salon on a regular basis for years and years.

I took pictures. Here are a few of the good ones:
