family time in WA

the weather forecast for the evening looks sunny

We spent an afternoon with the Mitchells in MO before we flew back to CA to drive up the highway

I've managed to get behind again in my blogging in part because of our move to Alaska but also because I have misplaced my camera cable that lets me download pics in all the moving shuffle. Yep, I have no idea as of yet where my cable is but I am sure it will show up sooner or later. I have several pics to download but thought I'd put up a couple from our time with Ben's family in WA before we headed up the Alcan.

We got to spend two days with Ben's mom and Tim in Kennewick before heading to Spokane for 2+ days with his dad and Tina. Tim is a weatherman for a local news station in Kennewick and we got to crash his station one evening and do a little news shoot of our own, very fun! Thanks Tim! We also went shooting one afternoon with Dorothy and Tim . . . pistols this time. I'm improving my aim more and more. Hand guns are easier than rifles and shot guns b/c you having the "right fit" doesn't matter as much. We've already picked out "my" rifle that will come later down the road . . . a youth size that I can manage much easier than Ben's guns.

We enjoyed every minute of our time with family in WA. Thanks for being great hosts! I've got more WA photos that I'll post later when my camera cable shows up! :)
