St Ogden Valsinkidane Day!

So, we're a little weird (but that isn't surprising to anyone who knows us!) We finally gave our family holiday a name ~ "St. Ogden Valsinkidane Day". At 6:42 pm on June 30, 1992 Kevin and I met outside the City Lights Coffee House on Ogden Street. At the time, Kevin was the director of the coffee house (which was an outreach to the homeless) and I was coming to volunteer for the evening.

Several years ago we decided to make it our family holiday. The goofy name comes from the letters in "Kevin and Lisa, Ogden St" (all mixed up into a word that sounded fun). This year we had a lot going on during the daytime, but in the evening we took the kids and went in search of a fun, 'out of the ordinary' spot for ice cream sundaes. We ended up at a fun little ice cream shop in the small town of Sedalia (a few miles up the road from Castle Rock).
