Flowers and Family on the Mountain

As promised, here are more photos from our trip.  These ones were taken with my camera (and not my phone).

First the flowers.


And then the family.

We actually had a fire in the stove the first evening.

Ryeleigh had to be kept on a leash.  Thankfully Mo and William helped with the walking duties.

I bought William and Tom a crystal radio kit.  Unfortunately it needs soldering so they will ahve to wait and assemble it at home.

    What a wonderful trip! The pictures are really nice. Is the man with the beautiful white hair your dad?
    William and Piper are just as cute as can be!
    That must be Mt. Rainier in the distance.

      Thanks Jeanne! It was a wonderful trip that is my Dad. It is Mount Rainier in the photos but you can also see Adams and St. Helens.

  2. An incredible album! I really love the sky scapes!

    Your dad sure has beautiful hair! Wish I had that lovely silvery hair! If I ever get a decent picture, you’ll see my hair, too.
