Before we left for home, we visited the Sacajawea Museum which was very interesting. Did you know she was only 17 when she joined the Lewis and Clark expedition? She died of an infection shortly after the birth of her second child, a daughter, at the age of 25.
The museum is located at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers. How would you like to try navigating the river in this?
Today we felt rewarded when we saw this Stargazer Lily finally open one of its buds. And yes, it was finally warmer here!
I've been knitting on some long term projects which I hope will be off the needles soon. Two August birthdays are spurring me on! Meanwhile, I've finished another headband. It's such a fun pattern and doesn't require a whole lot of yarn.
Mocha likes to supervise my knitting. I thinks she's saying, "Can't you knit faster?"
The Chicago family checked in today, too. They spent a fun day at Six Flags yesterday. They look pretty happy, don't they? (Thanks for the photos, Michael!)
I'd rather try to paddle the dug-out than ride this thing! (Goliath roller coaster)
It's official now. We are a one car family for the first time in almost 50 years. Our second Mazda is on its way as a donation to KUOW, the local NPR station. Our Mazdas served us well, the last two for twenty years each! One of these days I'll get around to posting the flower pictures....... Have a great weekend!
