Happy Birthday. Gryphon!

Happy Birthday, Big Boy!
One Year Old!
This was also an opportunity to have a partial family reunion!
The party was held outside of Portland, Orgon at my nephew Tim and Ursulla's house.
My sister Norma and her husband Jim flew up from Florida and their son Douglas and wife Steffany came up from California and Tom, Jen and Marquez were already in Portland. It was a grand day, full of activities and fun for all!

Gryphon's fortune.
After touching the thread (indicating long life) on two separate attempts, it became obvious that the right object was not on the table. A musical instrument and a knife were added to the selection.

More images and videos are located here on Michele's Picasa album. And
on my Facebook album

In the evening, we were joined by my dear friends the Smith/Green family.

Tim and Phyllis Smith and Alexandra G. live in Portland and son Alex Green attended the University of Hawaii where we all got to see him play football for the Warriors. It so happened that we were all in town at the same time and got a chance to get together to enjoy some fellowship, food and fun!

Joyous Ridvan!

The Tongue of Wisdom proclaimeth: 
He that hath Me not is bereft of all things. 
Turn ye away from all that is on earth and seek none else but Me. 
I am the Sun of Wisdom and the Ocean of Knowledge. 
I cheer the faint and revive the dead. 
I am the guiding Light that illumineth the way. 
I am the royal Falcon on the arm of the Almighty. 
I unfold the drooping wings of every broken bird and start it on its flight. - Baha'u'llah
