Family, Family and More Family

Ron's sister, Sheryl, is visiting from Missouri, so we have been making the rounds of family in Washington that she hasn't seen in 16 years (or ever, in the case of most of the children).
First stop:  Dinner with niece, Regina, and her family
It was our first chance to meet these darling grand nieces:
Then on to Bonney Lake to see our Crawford family there:
Sheryl with her nephew, Ron, on his deck with the fantastic view of Mt. Rainier.
We had pizza and a birthday party for the September birthday with Ron and Keri and their family.
As we headed to another birthday party in Eastern Washington, we took in the beauty of the Tumwater Canyon with it's fall foliage.
Saturday was our great grandson, Sammy's, first birthday party.  We all had to compete for a chance to hold him.  Since he prefers his grandpa, we had to catch him when Grandpa was busy putting up the tent or hauling chairs.
There was no shortage of Grandmas and Grandpas to hold this little charmer!
And he got to spend time with a cute little girl too!
We came home today on North Cascade Highway, after a stop in Winthrop.
