|Doughnuts, driving food!|
We drove to Edison, WA via highway I-90 and 405 to I-5. This was a very quick and uneventful drive, taking only 6 hours. Our plans today were to visit friends and attend a birthday party for Maggie Collinge who is turning 70. We stayed with John and Liz Degloria and were so grateful for their wonderful hospitality
We arrived in Edison and immediately started getting into the party spirit by helping Iris, the event host and one of our very favorite people, with the final food and party preparations. Iris's house is about three blocks from the Edison Granary where the party was set to take place. We prepped food, gathered ice and moved items over to the party site. It was good to catch up with the happenings in Edison and Iris's life.
We walked to John's business, Slough Foods, and picked up the house keys so we could drop our bags off. What a cool store/restaurant he owns! It's filled with wine, cheeses, and all kinds of delicious things. We picked up ice and some other little items while we were there and then went back to watch the party unfold.

The party wound down by about 9:30 PM and we helped clean up before retiring to John and Liz's place. We both showered and went to bed as soon as we could. It was so nice to get to talk to John and Liz. We wish we could have more time together with all our wonderful Edison friends.
|John and Iris, our hosts and wonderful friends.|
