I think Elle had the best seat in the house for the races! Her blanket is one that Grami made for Elle out of a bunch of my old rowing shirts. All the alum were quite impressed with it and probably at the next reunion we will see a few of them!
Group shot! It was a beautiful day down at the river!
WSU was racing Oregon State. This was the varsity 4, which is what I rowed in my senior year. WSU is way a head. GO COUGS!!
A look at the crowd along the point. In the far distant there is an old ice cream truck that is now a Coug mobile.
Family pic! It was so comforting to be around so much Crimson and Grey!
Kisses! Elle's latest trick, how ever you must, I repeat must pucker up or she will slobber all over you.
Waving to the boats as they passed!
Elle and I had a little talk about what she needs to do to prepare for a rowing career. It went a little like this:
Momma: Elle, you need to grow 47 inches in the next 18 years
Elle: Eeck (translation: no problem)
Momma: you must eat all your veggies so you grow strong
Elle: Waved it off
Momma: Crimson looks good on you, huh?
Elle: nodded yes then no then yes
Momma: We probably need to get you swimming lessons
Elle: babble babble, squeak (translation: yes, I agree! The sooner the better)
