June 28th Family Time

On June 28th we went down to Rainer, Oregon to my brother Mike's house for a graduation party in honor of the recent high school graduates. It was great to be together as a family again. Starting on the left, my brother Tom, Myself, brothers David and Mike, and my dad, John.
My banjo has been in storage for four years, but we dusted it off and enjoyed remembering some of the songs we used to play. I just put this picture in to make Chuck Talbot jealous. Chuck is a co-worker in the Philippines who plays banjo and goes on survey trips with me.

Below is a picture of my nieces, Emma and Hannah. They don't know us yet, but we hope to be good friends soon.

We had a great time with Bill and Robin and their family. The kids went on canoe rides, we had a picnic, we explorered a glacier. Everywhere we went there were beautiful forests and snow capped mountains. We even saw a few moose. Thanks Bill and Robin!

In the last week of May, our son, Charles, graduated from Faith Academy in Manila. Good job Charles!!! We left the Philippines a couple of days later and stopped over in Alaska for a week with Heidi's sister and her family.
