State GFWC Board Meeting

We travel to Burley, Idaho for the State GFWC Board Meeting.  Maurie Barton is President for the next 2 years so she went early.  I drove the pick-up over and took Nina Ricks, Linda Flamm, Pat Packer, and Rochelle Arnold with me.  We had a great day.  It is always interesting to meet with the other ladies across the State.

89th Ward Activity

For the Ward Activity we went to the Straw Maze.  It was a beautiful night and the kids all seemed to have a great time visiting and just getting acquainted.  I got a picture of the sunset but nothing else. It was a fun evening.

Fall Bike Ride

 On my bike ride today I saw this interesting bull with huge horns that seemed to want his picture taken.  I am glad there was a strong fence between me and the bull.  It was a beautiful day in south eastern Idaho for a bike ride.  Melanie said, "Maybe he was gentle like Ferdinand the Bull."
Also on my bike ride I came upon and herd of cows being driven down the road.  I am scared to death of cows (memories from my childhood at my grandparents home).    No fences this time and no place to hide.  So I had to just stand there and let them pass.  But I survived, but I am still scared of cows!!!!

Flights home

Melanie flew home on Sunday night at 8:30 pm. and Hillary, Ashley and I flew home on Monday at 4:30 pm.  We all had a wonderful time on a Mother and Daughter long week-end.  I appreciate my daughters so much.  They are each growing into such wonderful ladies and each have their own personality.  It is fun to get them together and do things with them.  I will always love them.  Thanks girls for a great weekend.

The Water Front

 Pier 62/63 is actually a park under the Seattle Parks and Recreation.  The few yellow chairs on the open pier are bolted down.  A great place to watch the Puget Sound.
Pier 59 was the only pier partially open because of the road construction.  There were a few fun things to see there.

Seattle Public Market

 We walked down to the Public Market Center again.  There are so many shops there you cannot see or shop at them all.  What a fun place to browse.
 There are street performers all over.  This kids instrument was pretty interesting.  Also a talking parrot.
We ate lunch at the Pasta Bar.  The lasagna was the best and the workers were so entertaining.  What a fun lunch.

Space Needle to Westlake Center

 Last views of the Space Needle.  It was so close we walked there every day from our motel.
 Last ride on the monorail to Westlake Center.
We stopped at Westlake Center and did some shopping.
