rhubarb apple pie

if you're from bellingham, you've heard of ski to sea.
it's an annual race of sorts, accompanied by a parade, a fair, etc.
it's really one of the most exciting things that happens in bellingham every year.

two years ago my mom and all her friends got together to start this...

yes, it's a synchronized umbrella drill team.
(i am not making this up)

this year, they won an award.

drinking cocktails and eating rhubarb apple pie :)
