A Visit With The In-Laws...

Yesterday we drove down south for about an hour or so to visit my husband's parents. The weather was once again fabulous so I took tons and tons of pictures. Here is the house Mr. G. grew up in...

Front of the house. It was built in the mid-60's...

Back yard towards Mount Rainier...

Mount Rainier as seen from the back deck.

View from the back deck over Commencement Bay. (Tacoma)

Master C.'s favorite spot! (and mine...)
We had a lovely lunch (pulled pork sandwiches!) and then did some digging around in the garden. (as one does when one is visiting...)     [wink]
Digging for potatoes...

Grandpa hiding in the shade and keeping a close look on it all...
It was hot!
And it will stay this hot for the rest of the week: Yahoo!

And there were sooooo many beautiful flowers!




I also walked around a bit with my camera inside and found these little gems... (my kids' favorites)


What a great visit! Thanks Grandpa and Grandma!  {smile}
