Spenser, Ashley, Delaney & Cindy arrived at our house around noon on Monday July 27th. Here they are that evening enjoying appetizers with Kelly.
The next day we went up to Elk Lake with Cindy, Spenser, Delaney, Ashley and visiting Antarctic friend Paul Bernasconi, his wife Michelle and their three daughters Katherine, Anna & Sarah. The Bernasconi's have been exploring the country in their RV since leaving their New York home in late June.
We rented three paddle boards for the day and everyone got some time paddling around the lake. Here's Spenser.

John Keller mailed us a few bags of our favorite potato chips...Humpty Dumpty BBQ!!! We only ever get them when we're out in Maine, so it was a real treat to have some at the lake.

The next day was spent shopping in the Old Mill District and downtown Bend with the Gilbert's and Ashely. Here we are ready for dinner at Greg's Grill.
