Gresham Skate World--Revisted--Happy Birthday Jonah!!


Little did you know that 13 years ago last month Jon and I met in front of the very lovely rock wall (circa 1967) you see us standing before now. 11 years of marriage and 4 kidlets later here we are, back again (by request, mind you), for Jonah's 9th Birthday Party! He wanted a co-ed party and there ended up being more girls than boys there (uh oh!). . . As you can see, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. There were only a few others that skated.

As soon as Brynne saw that everyone was going to be skating, she whipped her shoes off and demanded some skates, too! She did pretty well (with Daddy's help, of course)
