And one last wonderful family to share it with. Dennis whipped up a terrific dinner, and then we sat around the fire talking and drinking various hot beverages (coffee and tea for the "adults", hot chocolate for the rest of us). Madelyn sat at my feet most of the night snorting in (what I’m sure was) admiration. And then we ended on a sweet note: Tillamook ice cream!

Fun fact: 30 years ago, Dennis proposed to Jan underneath the World’s Largest Buffalo, which you may remember from back in Jamestown, ND!
