This is a wonderful day.
I've never seen this one before.
Hello Family and Friends.
Welcome to the World! The big news in our family this past week was the birth of my nephew Patrick and his wife Nicole Shepard's baby boy, Logan Joseph Shepard, on Wednesday in Bothell, Washington. Congratulations to Pat and Nicole! Logan is the first grandchild of Darrell and Mary Shepard and the youngest G grandchild of Maida Shepard. He had some problems at birth and is in the Critical Care Unit of a Seattle hospital. Our prayers and best wishes are with him and his family.
Cindy and I are in Northern California today to celebrate the first birthday of our youngest grandchild William Quincy Shepard, who was born to Nathan and Chenda Shepard in San Francisco one year ago.
Barbara's Birthday! William shares the spotlight on this day with my sister Barbara Shepard who is also celebrating her birthday. Born in San Diego at the end of the 1950s, Barb lives today in Anacortes, Washington as do many of the other Shepard's in our family. She is a long time employee of Safeway in Anacortes, and will be one of the family members hosting our family reunion this summer.
The picture on the left was taken in Alameda, California earlier this year and shows Barb holding William and his older sister Preslea.
Happy Birthday Jeff. And last but not least is the final person of today's birthday trio.
Jeff Clark, husband of Kim Boyd Clark, also celebrates his birthday on July 28. Jeff and Kim live with their family in Blue Springs, Missouri. The picture on the right was taken earlier this month and shows Jeff Clark. Thanks to Kim for sending me this photo.
The time is drawing very near for our Family Reunion in Anacortes, Washington on Saturday, August 10 at the Shepard home on Wildwood Lane. Have you made your plans to be there?
