Happy Birthday to Dad!

Edwin enjoyed a birthday at home. Augustus made breakfast pancakes, which Dad enjoyed in bed while studying scriptures ("And that would be the sweetest joy of all").

Kids helped Dad clean up the garage, which was quickly accomplished with so many helping hands. Then Dad flew kites in the meadow with them, and had a jacks tournament, which he won.

He enjoyed opening presents, and eating his mother's raisin cake, made by Virginia.
In the evening he went with Mom to a meet-the-school-board-candidates meeting. He was happy to receive phone calls from Nolan, Benjamin, and Charlie.

Birds in Glenwood

There were 25 of these large and graceful birds in the field across the highway from the Alma store. We're waiting for Benjamin to tell us what they are!
