We had an fun day when we decided to meet up with my friend and visit another mission.  We took the train down and enjoyed the history and the beauty of the San Juan Capistrano Mission.

The train was an experience that I enjoyed. It was so much better than fighting the traffic on the freeway. The traffic in California can be brutal.

Anyway, a beautiful afternoon and fun time with our friends...

My girl took the picture of the purple flower/lily pad.  I think it is awesome!

Oh Seattle! What a fun, cool city!  Yes, cool....
We had a great 4 days in the city.  We visited with our oldest daughter and our grand babies.  We had a world wind trip but a fun one.  My hubby had to work and we did some sightseeing.....

The first picture is the space needle. The second a picture of a barge taken from the top of the space needle, not sure what the next picture is, some kind of art work : ) My girlie girl with the grandkids, my sweet grand baby girl, some yummo cupcakes from "Yellow Leaf Cupcakes"(my girl took the pic), the next two pictures are butterflies from the Butterfly Conservatory, and lastly Mount Rainier taken from the airplane by my girlie.

So we had an unusual 4th of July.  We went to the Queen Mary for a visit and planned on watching the fireworks from there.  It turned out to be way busier than expected so we opted out.  We ended up at a restaurant and then headed home.  It was a nice day... quiet because girlie girl was not home.

I got a bit behind on my 366.  I am thinking I might just post my pics on Friday like Tracy.  It seems the weeks are just quickly passing by.

We are in full summer mode.  I am really afraid to think of school! Ugh! Next week I head for a home school convention and that will be my first thought of 8th and 12th grade.  I think I am trying to avoid it because I just want to sit on the beach all day.  : )

My grand babies came to visit and I got some pics of one of them on the beach and at the pool.  What a sweet heart.  So ADORABLE if I say so myself : )


Psalm 103:17
From everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love  is with those who fear Him and His righteousness with their children's children.

1000 Gifts

I have not posted my 1000 gifts in awhile.  Not sure why, just time getting away with me....
I have so much to be thankful for and I really want to continue and always remember what Jesus has done and is doing in my life.  The idea behind counting my gifts is to keep my mind always "thankful."  We can get so preoccupied with "self" and forget to really see the blessings all around us.  I want to choose to be thankful!  God is good all the time....
So to my list!
