Jared is in town for the weekend. It makes us miss Larissa more, as she didn't come, but we are thrilled he is here for Father's Day. They pulled in right as we were leaving for Three Bears to "fetch some meat." As it turned out we also looked at guns for my solitary hikes.
I was bummed Dad and Michael would get out and stay and I'd have to go to the store and miss the catching up. Michael said he'd go to the store and I could stay...but we hit on a solution. Jared hopped in the car and came with us.

What are they doing? Looks like some odd prayer circle around the table....
They're just serious about their Uno game.

We lingered around the table. Uncle Josiah had Benny and Jared snapped a photo.

At some point Benny moved to Jared. Jared showed him the photo of himself...

Arielle and Bennett headed downstairs. We played one round of Farkle. It was a fun table.

I didn't think it would get better than having Dad here; Jared joined us and the fun increased. We had a great time hearing about he and Larissa's transition to Juneau. He has some amazing video clips of Eagles eating fish, whales breaching and gorgeous sunsets - taken from their WINDOW. You won't be surprised, knowing his job and where he lives, we talked a "bit" of politics and the "funnies" which accompany that world.
It will be fun to spend the day together tomorrow....we're looking forward to adding BreZaak and kids to the mix. We're sorry Cory has to work both days.
