In reference to the entry entitled “Rites of Passage in the Front Room,” I’ve been reminded that Katherine, not Carrie, was the first grandchild to find her special mate. Katherine and Chad’s family shower was actually held on a sweltering July afternoon in Mike and Lisa’s backyard. As I recall, we used a Fourth of July theme, and some attendees even wore star-studded sunglasses.  Carrie and Rich’s party was several months later but was the first to be held in the russet red room at 511.
