celebrity bidding

Photographed the Pacific University Legends Golf Classic. Tommy Thayer (the lead guitarist from the band KISS and also a board member at Pacific University) hosts the two-day fundraiser every year to raise dollars for Pacific's athletics program. The auction was incredible to watch (as were the shoes) - and by incredible I mean a little frightening. One guy bought a car on the spot. You could also bid to play golf the following day with Tommy Masters, pretty amazing - although I think there were more bids to play with David Anders from the television show Alias.

just lovely

Brother John and sister-in-law Ye visited from Seattle. Lots of food ... even pancakes shaped like alpacas ... and a trip to the river to share our favorite swimming spot. Love when you guys visit!

Liam is amazing. He learned how to say Heidi and it makes me giddy. He also is fond of the word neenah, referencing any and all types of trucks ... neenah being the sound the firetruck makes obviously.
