The visit to family in Seattle went well. I saw my brother and sister and their families, as well as my father and a woman named Linda he is dating, plus my mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, she is a bit worse off than my last visit. She appears more frail and uses a walker to get around. I arranged my visit to coincide with the visit of my first boyfriend Douglas’ visit, since he was coming for his brother’s wedding. By a strange coincidence, my sister and brother know the bride, so I ended up babysitting my niece, three nephews, and the son of a family friend who also knows the bride during the festivities. The next day, Douglas and I took my mother out for dinner at an Italian restaurant in Edmonds and had a wonderful time.
Here are the pictures to prove it. Thanks to Douglas for the pictures at the restaurant taken on his camera, one of them snapped by the helpful waiter.
