Maddy's 6th Birthday

Dad sent these pictures in, Mum & Dad were up at Jane & Tim's celebrating granddaughter Maddy's 6th Birthday.

Spring is here!

The Latourell Falls Trail & Shepperd's Dell are probably the closest trails to were we live but because they are so short in over 20 years we've never stopped to hike them. Well we had a couple of free hours this Sunday afternoon & got to see a couple of waterfalls (Upper Latourell & Shepperd's Dell) that we hadn't seen before!

Shamrock Run

It was a very wet & cold Shamrock Run this year but that didn't dampen turnout with over 20,000 people showing up for all the different runs. Chiyoko ran the 8k & I ran the 15k.
