Summer Day Fun Stuff

Flying a kite; fun.

Squirting yourself with a squirtgun; fun.

Eating out on the porch; fun.

Hanging out at the school; fun.


This; not fun.

Kelsey turns 25 today !! :-)


OK, go ahead and hit me with the 'dude, you are OLD' refrain. I'm a big boy. I can take it. Go ahead, hit me.

But this ain't about me...

It's about our Kelsers, and she is having a really really great year. We are SO proud of her.

Kennewick and thereabouts

Last week and the week prior I was working in the Tri-cities. Here's a few pictures I snapped while I was there. My earlier post of the lightning storm was taken from there also.

Snoqualmie Summit Panorama



I've seen the "Denny Creek" sign a million times but never had stopped there until this trip.


It took a little walking but it was worth it.


There aren't many sounds as beautiful as rushing water.


Tallest building in Kennewick, from what I could tell.



Thursday night's free show


Sunnydale, Washington hot spot.

One of the offices I audited. Unofficially called 'underground out in the middle-of-nowhere'. No snakes thank goodness.




Hard at work.
Fascinating bird-cliff in downtown Lowden, Washington. Lowden is a tiny town a few miles east of the Walla Walla convention grounds.



Saw this view a LOT.

Aeries Reads "A Fish Out of Water"




She's quite the little multi-tasker too. She can read and watch "Thomas the Train" at the same time!

The Life and Death of a Lightning Bolt

It's interesting how it jumps around between stormclouds for a fraction of a second before it finally touches down.
