Pride in Seattle

Yesterday my youngest, Emily, took her goddaughter to the Pride festivities in Seattle. Looks like a good time was had by all. Today the Oldest, Kate, will take The Adorable One, aka Fiona, to the Pride Parade in Downtown.

In a few weeks the lot of them, including my son Henry will be coming for a visit.

Pretty predictable, never happens before June. This one is half mile from my house, and faces south so it gets lots of sun.
