Ed with his birthday cake.

Ed admires his birthday cake.

 

March is a busy month for birthdays in Anacortes. Here are a few photos. Ed had been longing for a proper German roast goose dinner, and so for his birthday he had exactly that, complete with red cabbage and potato dumplings. Kathi, however, had little say over her birthday celebration. A paniced call about a home break-in, caused Rob to take Kathi to the house in question to check it out. As the door swung open on the darkened house, and the lights were clicked on, she was surprised by 18 family members and a full birthday spread.
