Mabel Lake and Yellowstone National Park

In August Don and Luke and I went on a 2 week vacation. We drove through East and West Kootenays/ Idaho/ Washington/ Montana and Wyoming. We visited Yellowstone National Park. The scenery was fantastic. The picture above is one of my favorite memories of Montana. Don was even able to do a little fly fishing on the Clark Fork River. All in all, a great holiday.

The picture of the old barn was taken at one of our favorite camping spots. Mabel Lake, just outside of Vernon, BC. I love old barns. In September we spent a few nights camping at Mable Lake.

Gracie Annabelle Watson has arrived!!

This is Amy - taken with the new camera. Four days overdue.

On June 3rd, 2010 we welcomed the birth of dear Gracie Annabelle. She was born to our daughter Amy and her husband Ben, of Victoria, BC. Weighing in at 9lbs 1 oz, she shocked us all!! What a blessed experience to watch her enter this world.

Luke (the Lab) is 9 months now. He is finally starting to settle down a bit. He enjoys walks and swims and is very sociable. A far cry from Walter with his sociability. :)

I am still having issues with hip/groin/back. Off to a specialist this week.

So here he is. The new dog. AKA as Luke the Lunitic, or "lukatic". He is very mischievious!! He is 4 1/2 months here. Weighing in at about 45 pounds. We wonder what we have done at times.... he is very smart and is in desperate need of a job. He chews everything. He is always in trouble. Stay tuned... he will be growing!!
