The McKee siblings gathered this evening at Outback Steakhouse to celebrate my grandfather's 88th birthday. Pat and Dave drove up from Eugene, John and Nancy drove from Shaver Lake, Calif., Cindy and Don drove from Surprise, Ariz., (actually, from their summer home at the Oregon Coast) and Mark and Kati drove from Tigard. Eryn, Brad and I were representatives of the next generation. After pounding down bread, a bloomin' onion, a steak and a birthday sundae, Grandpa declared that he was full!
It was great to be included in such an awesome occasion. I hope we have many more birthdays to celebrate together.
