Outside our motel window we awoke to this peaceful beautiful scene. It just sets your
day before you so gracefully ...
We ate breakfast we @ the Country Cousins ... & we were seated at THIS table with the PINK ROSE POSTCARD ... each table had
memorabilia under the table top ...
Of course, I said they must have known
I was coming.
This is Mt. St. Helen's that greeted us as
we went out on the morning balcony ...
look at that gorgeous sunrise.
Another view of the lake we could see out our motel window ...
Now since I was a child, probably before, this fella has added STUFF to this house & yard.
There was a lot of hootin' & hollarin' about it when I was a kid, & we were so surprised it is still standing.
Actually an attraction by now ... amazing.
These are Harold's (2) precious cousins.
We adore one another. Deanna (l), Melody (r). Aren't they beautiful!
They had a lovely brunch for us on Deanna's terrace, the water fall fountain was creating a soothing rush, the gigantic evergreens surrounded us.
We had a grand time together, as always ... lots of laughter & love.
Gayle (l, eldest), Jack (middle, youngest) & Harold. The only (3) children of Harvey &
Naomi Underwood Ford.
We held the reunion at the Mercado, in Olympia. If you ever want a lovely dinner & fabulous service, this is the place to go.
I see Cathy & Cindy ...
Again, our precious family.
Cathelene, Harold, Marydon, Emery
Ansel & Tatiana. Emery left for a week
of climbing Mt. Baker with his buddies
the next day. Had some sore tooties but
loved the experience.
Our sweetheart niece Renee & fabulous son, Emery ~ first cousins. Love you guys!
We are with our precious Renee, once again. How blessed we are to have this wonderful niece, she is like our right arms.
Love you, sweetie.
Driving up & down the streets just to see what we could see, we stumbled upon another interesting front yard ...
full of interesting objects & plants galore.
As we ventured down the road to find the old homestead Harold's family settled in when coming west from Oklahoma, we saw this beauty.
Look at this awesome architecture. The porch was all dressed up ...
ready for a formal celebration ...
or a casual respite to leisurely enjoy.
At the end of the day in Centralia, WA.
