It's Awww Monday! August 29, 2016

We enjoyed a fun weekend!
Here are some random photos... 
Russell and Noam at Mt Shasta's
Friday Art Walk. 

A Black-eyed Susan will grow
just about anywhere!

Good friends from Portland came to visit
and stay overnight on their way home....

They are all wearing one of Russell's
T-shirts he created for the Portland BMW group... 
Early yesterday I took the Amtrak train up
to Portland to visit my son for a few days....
but I made sure Russell had plenty of cookies!
Here's an early morning shot of Mt Shasta
 as we leave. Not the best as the windows
are not the cleanest....but then I don't 
think trains get washed too often!
The train was only 10 minutes late- yay!  
Almost to Portland- this photo is of
the Willamette Falls in Oregon City.
The train got in on time and now I can
enjoy a few days with family!
