Dear Jasper and Kestrel,
I am writing to you because Cousin Liza is here in Portland! She and her Mommy and Daddy flew up Saturday.
First, we all went for a walk to Laurelhurst Park. The weather was clear but still a little chilly, but Grandpa fetched the frisbee and badminton set from the garage, anyway. As we all walked around the park, seeing all the kids, families, couples and dogs enjoying the lawns, he was secretly on the lookout for a place to set the net up and play.
And, not far away from the meadow where we see Shakespeare every year, he did just that! Within minutes we had the net up, coats off, and were having the first game of the season! Hooray!
Of course, it took all of us some time before we remembered how long the rackets make our arms, and Liza had never played at all. But Uncle David figured out a way for her to serve successfully, and we all had a great time.
Back at the house, we chatted, read stories, made dinner, and ate….. and ate some more.
i will tell you more about our adventures tomorrow!
