The Third Generation makes it !

I think the world of my father. He was really one of the walking to school barefoot in the snow, uphill both ways kids. He really had a dirt floor and the family sacrificed to buy him shoes so he could go to school. He broke his mother’s heart when he left his job at the gas station to head off to college. With the help of the GI bill he was the first of his family to graduate from College. With my oldest son getting his diploma(s) my dad was thrilled that three generations had graduated from college.
We had a party this weekend to celebrate the occasion before the lad heads off to post graduate study abroad. The typical Seattle weather was unpredictable and changed throughout the day. Here are a couple of shots of the event.
You can see Pete our greeter, decked out as a grad and My handson son on top of Mt. Pilchuck.
