|Party decor - we could not have asked for more beautiful weather --|
though a little more shade would have been welcome.

Because we knew that Kane would be completely overwhelmed (and demanding) during the day's events, we took him over to his foster-mother's apartment for the day.
Coincidentally, Steve's nephew is a musician with the Airliner Blues Band. Earlier this spring they had a Kickstarter to raise funds for their second CD release. We sponsored them and, as part of that sponsorship, received a free house party. We set up a very small stage in the corner of our yard that is usually occupied by our hammock. The music was fantastic!

We were so happy with how many of our friends and loved ones joined us, some for a short visit as they were double- or triple-booked, but some came and stayed, including this fun crowd.
|I have no idea why I've placed my hand on our friend's knee. I may have had one or two glasses of wine by then.|
All in all, it was a marvelous day
