By Ed Knudson
Our new grandchild, Brayden Kristoffer Buchanan, was born at 10:21AM on September 20, 1999, in Seattle, Washington.
- Brayden's First Photos When He Was Born. Nana Linda was in bed in Portland when she got news that Sonja's new baby was about to be born. So she hopped into Ed's Thunderbird and drove up to Seattle. She walked into the hospital and heard someone hollering and knew at once, that's my daughter. Brayden Kristoffer was arriving.
- The Baptism of Brayden. Brayden was baptized at Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon, by Pastor Mark Knutson. This section contains 60 photos of many family members presented in a slideshow format. When you click on this link it will take quite some time for all the photos to download. Then, after they are downloaded to your computer, you will see an unusal presentation of one photo after the other. This is fun, take a look.
- Born to Trike. (fast version) These are photos of our trip to Seattle in April, 2000, when Terry was in a bike race. (and won second place that day). If, during the slide show you want to return here, just click on the picture. This slideshow presentation is different than the one above, easier to use and set up; each photo is downloaded separately. There are 49 photos here. The slow version is 20 seconds for each picture so there is adequate time to both download and view the photo. The fast version is for fast Internet connections; presentation time is five seconds.
- New Bathroom in Seattle. Here's Brayden watching the building of a new bathroom in Sonja and Terry's first home. He's just beginning to crawl. This is set for 10 seconds for each slide.
