|This evening we went to the 50th wedding anniversary party for Brandon’s
in-laws, Chuck and Joleen, Lisa’s parents. It was at the Campus Commons
Club House where I live. And this photo is taken on the Club House dock
which is surrounded by water.
At one point I felt my earring fall off and it must have gone through the slats
of the deck into the water. Shortly after that Colleen took off her shoes to
get better traction when we were lifting Erin and chair up 2 steps. When
Colleen went to put her shoes back on, one slipped into the water as
she was sliding her foot into it! There it was floating in the water. She and
Brandon retrieved the swimming pool net and were able to retrieve
the shoe, which she put back on and wore wet for the rest of the
It was an elegant party. Lisa had worked for weeks on it. It included
a replica of the original wedding cake and a catered dinner.
Steve arrived shortly after this photo was taken. He had driven Mišelka
to Berkeley where she was meeting up with the girl with whom she
is flying to Hawaii tomorrow. Steve left the boys and Raquel, the new
au pair, at Cindy’s for the evening.
