June-July 2001  
Even in Washington State, we do have our nice days. Summer in the Pacific North West, when we see sun, it's a celebration!

The kids had a new swing set (bought by both sets of grandparents) in the yard and a new pool provided by C.C. It was pretty difficult to keep them or the dogs inside for long. They spent all the time they could outside.

Having had surgery #6 on my left knee, there was no camping for me this year. Hopefully, by next summer, I'll be back up in the Cascade Mountains, enjoying camping along the Wenachee River again. Willow and I really enjoy getting away at our favorite site, Salmon la Sac.

Sally and the kids flew down to So California so she could attend her brother's wedding and spend a few days visiting her parents.
