Getting Excited


We have 4 days left before we are on our way to
British Columbia Canada.

Where I will see my children and grandchildren!


My Family!

This picture was taken  5 years ago (I have newer ones but they're stuck in my old computer!) The fellow in back with the beard is my Mr Fixit and the lady holding the little girl is my daughter in law.

Since this picture was taken we have two new grandchildren who we haven't seen yet. They were adopted over a year ago.
I'm so excited.

It's been two years since I've seen them all!


These are pictures of the area where my oldest and youngest sons live and my grandkids. This is Echo Lake and is on the side of a mountain just a few miles from town. It is a very beautiful area but they do get 40-60 feet of snowfall per winter.
It's a ski area.


My youngest granddaughter at the time with my oldest daughter before she had a little one of her own.


We'll be doing lots of sight seeing and visiting old places we used to go when the kids were little and taking logging roads up mountains. I'm hoping the huckleberries are still producing further up the mountains. Mr Fixit is a Kansas boy and has never had a huckleberry.


I'm looking forward to seeing clean clear water again
Kansas lake water leaves much to be desired...but it's wet!

I'm busy busy busy trying to get all the last minute things done around the farm before we head out. I hate flying but it takes 3 days to drive up there and we're limited for time this year.

I'm excited to go ...but I'm already anticipating leaving.
And that's always hard to do.

I hope your summer holidays have been good so far. Enjoy what's left of the season!

Take care.

Maura :)

Hello,

Well, we all wish you a most wonderful vacation and family reunion. From the pictures we see you have quite a "little fluffy swimmer" in the family. Precious.

Have a wonderful time, safe travel prayers are coming your way.

Blessings,
Joyce & The Bears

It's a little early, but 'Welcome Home, Maura!'. I think the forecast is for continued good weather, and I'll be the lake is as crystal clear as the last time you were there. We sure are lucky up here with the lakes. We have a choice when it comes to fresh water swimming - it's like swimming in liquid silk....remember?
