Second visit with family

Yesterday was my second trip out to the Lake House. I went earlier in the afternoon so I could go swimming. On the way down the gravel road I found sisters Gaby and Maria picking raspberries. When I got to the house people were hanging out on the porch. Sister Fran, and nephew Levi were there. After a while people began changing into the swim suits and going down to the water. I spent a lot of time in the water playing with Forrest. He likes to have water blown at him through the foam noodles.

Mieka made dinner. It was curried chicken with pineapple, stir fried vegetables, cucumber salad, green beans, and rice. All very tasty. For desert we had homemade chocolate cake for Fran's Birthday.

The party on Friday is for Gina's 50th birthday, but she was born on January 18. January is not a good time for people to get together. It certainly would not be a good time to rent a lake house or go swimming. So we are having the party now. Fran's birthday is July 14 (Bastille Day). She had her 50th birthday get together a few years ago. So this party isn't for her. But we still had to acknowledge her birthday. She spent the 14th running in the Valley Girl Triathlon. She came in first in her division.

I have been very tired today and have not accomplished much. I sent the Family Cookbook off to the printer. And burned a pot of beans. I hope the cookbook has no major errors. I still feel like I need another day off.
