Portland/Seattle Vacation

Here are some pictures of our vacation to Portland and Seattle. There are a ton and they are all mixed up so I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves. We had a great time visiting first with the Portland Budds and then more of Jeff's family in Seattle.

Let's go to the beach

Our first but hopefully not last visit to the beach this summer.

Love the colors of the buildings.

Picking a good spot.



Sand digging.

It was a pretty fun and exciting day.

Goodbye beach, we hope we see you again soon.

Micah, friends and picture painting

This is Jeff's view of Micah. He is way down there.

When Heather and I were in the house talking Jeff and Kevin made a fire pit in the backyard. Very manly. They even found some Christmas lights to decorate with. What do you do with a fire pit? Roast marshmallows and make smores of course.

Kevin teaches photography at a college so he showed us some functions on my camera like changing aperture and shutter speed. We had fun with that and did some picture painting. We used the outdoor lights, a flashlight and laser to paint. These were some of my favorites.

Can you see Micah the ghost in this one?
