YAY! I'm glad you made it to the Ape Cave! One of these days, I'll take my boys.

And I haven't been to Battle Ground Lake in probably over 15 years. Yeah, I was a bit nervous after hearing about the e coli. And I usually pass on Vancouver Lake for the same reason.


Yup... there's that "Alexis Look" again... :D You are blessed, no doubt, M & G. :D


Tho I have to say... Miss Jessica also has her looks. What a couple of characters... great kids. :D

Oh Michelle! I DO fight my lazy side... I just enjoy being at home so much it's difficult. However, it looks like you and your beautiful family found some fun stuff to do nearby. Hmm... got me thinking now. BTW, love your 36 things to do list! I'll be 50 in January and I think I'd like to make a similar list. Thanks for sharing!


It looks great! Who says you have to travel far for a great holiday! Yesterday I was with my Dad out in the boat. I tell you: lying on the boat-roof, looking at the skies floating by, and smelling the salty sea-air does wonders!
The sandy beach looks very inviting! And you all seem to be having the best time.
Oh, and I have gotten so many compliments for my new clock and cat-jar!


Had a great time... love just hanging out with you three... thanks for the invite!

Your whole family is beautiful. Your Mom is gorgeous too.
