Summer 2017

With everyone here this summer we squeezed in a ton of activities. Some of them, such as hiking and camping, the Rose Gardens, Tillamook Cheese Factory, Enchanted Forest, and OMSI are traditional activities that we repeat every odd year when the whole gang comes. This summer we added a visit to Mt. St. Helens. We leave time for swimming, trampoline jumping and so on.

lunchtime, Ramona Falls

on the same day that some were hiking to Ramona Falls, Daniel was in hospital after a grand-mal seizure😢


  1. Lovely pictures! I'm sorry about Daniel's hospitalization, though. Has he been having them more frequently this year? Or maybe you've just posted more about them. Hope he's doing OK!

    Looks like your family had some great times this summer!

    1. "them" being seizures...not hospitalizations. I was not clear.

    2. Daniel has had a tougher year--a couple of hospitalizations due to more severe seizures, and he broke his wrist falling on the ice in February.

      We're grateful though that his general health is very good. Thanks for checking!
