We had a a chicken Caesar salad that was pretty good. They also had an Ice Cream Stand, so
we had to have an ice cream cone, also. I haven't had one for years! (really).
I live in Desert Aire, which is a resort community. A variety of people live here, including
retirees, who live here full time. Cailin and I had a glorious time swimming in the river. August
is very warm (over 90 degrees), and by then, our Priest Rapids Lake is warmer. Because we are
between two dams: Wanapum and Priest Rapids Dams, It forms two lakes: ours and Wanapum.
We also went boating, and Cailin floated on the large inner-tube. I am afraid I could not do that
sort of thing anymore. But I will try this year!
Parker Gerrit Arnold is grandchild #2. He is photographed here at the Benton-Franklin Fair near Kennewick, Washington. He is with us on the Tilt-a-Whirl. We had a blast.
Parker is a Boy Scout, and won all of the metals available while preparing for "scout-dome". He is in Jr. High, and like his sister, he plays the Viola. Cailin plays the violin and cello, and is in the Concert Orchestra as a sophomore in high school. Both are gifted beyond normalhood, says his Grandma!
Parker and Grandma cut greens for Christmas wreaths and decorations. He replaces his Dad as my greens cutting partner.
