Wonders of Washington!

Parker, Macey and I spent 3 weeks in Toledo, Washington at John's mom's house. Memories is what it is all about. The weather was wonderful and the kids spent most of the time outside! They created several forts. The last one was with actual hammer, nails and wood. They built a two story one! They were pretty proud of it!

Mt. St. Helen's - Before, After & Now

John grew up in Toledo, WA which is the gateway to Mt. St. Helen's. It erupted on the day he was suppose to graduate from high school - May 18, 1980. It is amazing the devastation it caused and how it has come back in the many years that have followed. It has, however, taken time to get back to some of its original beauty and recover from the eruption.
