Hurray, it's Summer! Or is it?

Yep, just another Northwest July day.

So...what's been happening this summer? Let's take a look, shall we?

In June, I went to Alaska on a ten day sales trip. (Which, is a very long time to be away from your children!)

I visited customers....

 caught up with friends....

and saw beautiful scenery: this is outside of Palmer, just off the Parks Hwy.

We enjoyed the local wildlife: this Northern Hoarder was spotted in Fairbanks.

Then, our granddaughters arrived from New Mexico. It was wonderful to have them here.

 We enjoyed fun, summer beach days (noticed how we're bundled up?)

 Our annual Olympic Game Farm trip.
 The kids had a blast together.

Then it was off to Spokane with their cousins to see my parents.
This is Ana's favorite pose these days.

My brother & sister with my nephew & Ana on the Tilt-a-Whirl. I was impressed that my Dad took Jack, (it makes me totally queasy these days), but after the ride he was heard to say, "I don't need to do that ever again."

Spokane's Riverfront Park was our amusement rides, no nap, max out on sugar, late afternoon meltdown day. Actually, it was alot of fun!

My parents have property in Spokane and lots of animals and rusted out farm equipment. Apparently, that's what happens when you become a farmer, you have to keep everything for spare parts.

My Dad found his new calling....Cow Whisperer

and Chicken Whisperer....

and the Goose Whisperer.

So what more adventure does the summer have in store? 


Hopefully some sun, since we're going camping soon (are we crazy?)
