Cousin Ila, Uncle Joel and Aunt Bessie came to Seattle for Grandpa's 65th birthday bash / February Luau. A wild time was had by all. Plastic leis, tropical drinks, tiki torches and loopy kids running around. Who knew Danny was such a skilled hula hooper? It was bitterly cold outside, but most everyone came in Hawaiian-esque attire. At least it wasn't snowing (as it did twice later in the week - it's March, what's going on?).
Elliot has taken on the role of elder statesman in the family. (Gawd he's such a ham, we've got to sign him up for acting classes.). His card for Grandpa included all of the grandkids. Note how Ila is wearing a dress and has long blond hair. Happy Birthday Grandpa!
