Hiking with Doranda and her family

Doranda invited us to go on a hike with them earlier this month.

 It was fun.  The trail was out in the area near where they live, Gold Creek Trail up Green Mountain.

 Some of our group decided to take a shortcut and we got separated for a while.  We thought it was a switchback shortcut but it never did connect back up.

 Rest stop.

 Interesting views.  There was one area where the lumber had been harvested and they left behind huge piles of debris.

Feeding the hungry birds.

We love being outdoors with family on a hike.

Ashton Evan and Thomas

Guess who we ran into at the airport the other day?

Thomas Rawls, RB for the Seattle Seahawks.

Here's a picture I took of Thomas Rawls taking a selfie with Evan and Ashton.  He's not very tall (I looked it up, only 5'9"), but he looked like solid muscle and was a very friendly guy.

For those that don't know what a RB is, that's the guy they give the ball to, and he has to run past the monster sized tackles and giant linebackers.

Another picture of Evan and Ashton's new buddy on an average work day against the Chicago Bears.

 Ashton and Evan were at our house for a few days on a short but fun visit.

We had a good time and enjoyed their company.
