Madrona Tree

Our poor Madrona tree. Although the tree is dead and a bit haunting, it was sad to see it go.This was the last photo I had taken on Friday. They ended up cutting the large branch you see here. Now all that is left is a 20 foot trunk. They will come finish the job in a few days....hopefully.

Weekend in the mountains

This past weekend we went to the mountains with our friends David and Jane. Our dear friends, Bonnie and Richard, let us use their cabin for the weekend. We had a great time hanging out by the campfire getting to know one another. Here are a few photos from the weekend.

David made it across the roaring creek. When it was time to jump back he had a dilemma. He made it back fine with limited water in his shoes!

enjoy a cigar by the fire.

Here is Diane's first attempt at her own triptych. Our friends Hillary & Krishna commissioned Diane to paint silk that complimented their home's d├ęcor and colors.

Pittsburgh PA



Steven spent seven days in Pittsburgh. Some for a United Way conference, the other days spent with his parents.

Pittsburgh turned out to be a great town with nice people and wonderful, old architecture. We visited the botanical garden near Carnegie Mellon University where they had Dale Chihuly glass tucked away in each of the gardens.
