We joined the Gemmers at a parade in Gig Harbor, which was a great time for everyone...except Daisy, who was a little freaked out by any and all costumed characters.
The weather was beautiful and I was diligent about smearing sunscreen on any and all exposed body parts, even if they did not belong to me. Fortunately, Deanna didn't mind me rubbing sunscreen on her husband's arms too much. :)This picture was submitted in the "Funniest" category by Deanna Gemmer
About halfway through the parade, we headed back to the Gemmer home for naps for the Middles. The guys moved picnic tables to get their yard party ready. And, then it was PARTY TIME!Darin & Deanna graciously hosted a joint birthday/graduation party for Daisy and Amy. (Invites said, "One's turning 3. One's getting her MD". That Deanna is so clever). A fun time was had by all. Oh, and here's some advice: If you throw a party, invite these people. Susie brought food. Dwight either held Andie or chased Sam the whole time. And, then they washed dishes at the end. Plus, they're just nice people, anyway.
