we had the privilege of hosting m's sister l and her girls for the past month; papa p got to join them for the better part of the last two weeks. they did a lot of life with us, including making it out to b's graduation (see the slideshow in the left hand column of this page or see the album) and worshiping with us at the bridge. they also did the sightseeing thing all around the seattle area, occasionally with different members of our family.
but only yesterday were we all able to get out to the city together, and what a glorious day it was! after what seemed like over a week's worth of rain, the sun was out; the sky was blue; even mt. rainier was visible all day! it was a perfect day for a harbor cruise -- and for their last full day in seattle.
afterward, we stopped off at ram to celebrate father's day with delicious burgers, and topped it all off with a frasier mini-marathon.
we dropped them off at the airport today. i know they'll be glad to get back to hawaii, but we'll miss them. the house will be a lot more sedate without them.
