Griffin's first California trip pictures

Griffin has taken over 200 photos on his camera so far, approximately 167 of them are from his seat in the car, trying to catch a passing truck going the other way. Needless to say, that is not very successful. However, he has captured a few nice shots and many of the scenery beyond the freeway. Here is the first set!

Some recent events

With the end of school for both Griffin and me, I haven't been great about updating our blog. What I really need to do is take a photo of our garden, which looks very different from the May photo! We harvested fava beans and sugar snap peas last week, and have a few green tomatoes which should be waiting for us when we return from California!

Recent events in Griffin's life:

Hugging an elephant at the Woodland Park Zoo

Feeding a horse!

Making sure the grass is cut just right, while being supervised by the horse.

The Gorge!
