Welcome Home Samuel Bess!

Fun day today as our friend Debbie came down from Seattle for a visit to Tacoma, but the highlight of the day was a visit at Kristina and Dan’s place to visit their new arrival. Samuel Easton Bess was born two days ago and just arrived home today. What a great 4th of July! I am assuming the spelling of his name is traditional as the parents are a bit more “East Coast”. If it’s really Saamyuel Eaztun, I apologize to the family for misspelling (and the kid for the parents).

Kristina is Rita’s oldest brother Steve and his wife Diane’s youngest girl. (Yes, you ARE oldest in this regard Steve.) Dan’s Parents and Diane are already here (like responsible grandparents) while Steve is to join later. I am sure he will say he was saving the best for last. In reality he is just late to the party, per usual.

We were thrilled to be invited for a nice Four of July grilled dinner cooked up by the Bess family. We managed a great visit and to get Rita out of the place without her kidnapping the baby. I took some photos for them while we were there. I apologize if the mom and dad look a wee bit tired, but those of you who have kids will understand. We were personally very impressed with Kristina and Dan’s stamina (Kristina in particular) to actually be up and about at this point.

Anyway, it was great to meet Samuel, and we hope that Dan’s posting keeps them here long enough for some babysitting duties for Aunt Rita (He is a military doctor, still training and under obligation to Uncle Sam’s whims). The set of Samuel’s first day home is POSTED HERE.
