Road Trip!

Susan, Christine, Shirlieann and friend Mary take a road trip to Kahneeta in Warm Springs, OR. Susan and Christine were quoted as saying, "We've got to get out of Vancouver!" Yes, you must drive for 2 hours to get out of the rain. Kahneeta had beautiful warm weather. There was however some wind. But, all four girls enjoyed the trip and the change of scenery. On a last note, a game of miniature golf was played, and Christine was the winner!




Shirlieann and Kevin are expecting a BOY! Shirlieann had her ultra-sound July 5th, and the baby spread his legs and said "PEEK-A-BOO!" Since we're on the subject, the baby shower has been set for September 21, 2002.
Shirlieann's due date is November 23, 2002. Baby shower is being hosted by Christine, Shirley and Susan. Christine is on the decorating committee, Shirley and Christine are working together in the games department, Shirley is the grocery shopper, and Susan is on the cooking committee. Susan is also the keeper of the venue. Look for your invitations, coming soon! And let me forewarn you, Christine has been quoted as saying, "If people don't RSVP there will be hell to pay!" Wow-wee! So make sure you RSVP when you receive your invitation by the due date. That's the date indicated on the invitation, not Shirlieann's due date.

Significant Dates:

May 14th... Susan and Doug celebrated their 8th anniversary!
May 26th...Linda Doody turned 30!

Christine's Choice Recipe of May/June

Sliced fresh strawberries, optional

In a mixing bowl, beat the milk and pudding mix until thick and smooth, about two minutes; set aside. Drain strawberries and discard juice. Place berries in a blender. Cover and process until smooth. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in strawberry puree. Divide half of the chocolate pudding among four or six parfait glasses or bowls.

Robert Was Prom Queen!

No, Robert wasn't really Prom Queen. I just couldn't think of a good headline to catch your attention.

Robert went to the prom in June. He went with his then girlfriend Susan Hauser. Robert and Susan were reported to have had a great time!
