Port Orchard, WA

Port Orchard, WA has become one of my many favorite places to visit, these are just a few pics from the waterfront where they have little shops and places to eat.

They had some really intriguing organic grocery shops that if I lived there, I would be patronizing often, the fresh meat and vegetables looked amazing.


 So I have no clue who this man is, but we were talking to him because he had a Miniture Husky, So very adorable. My pics are kind of blurry, but you get the idea!!

Sarah Copeland's (Montano) Wedding PT. 2

The reception was beyond beautiful!

Very few weddings have food that actually tastes good. I will have to say this food was very good and the decor was nicely done. My favorite part was the stringed instruments playing. Love that idea for a wedding reception.

Sarah Copeland's (Montano) Wedding PT.1

 One thing you have to understand about Sarah, we have known this (little girl) for a very long time, I know what your thinking, but in my eyes she will always be sweet little Sarah to me.

Her big day to become a married lady and change her name from Montano to Copeland.

My handsome three dressed up and ready to go...

The San Joaquin valley

I spent four years living in Stockton, CA and had many occasions to visit the City of Sacramento.

     My favorite part was Old Town Sacramento, probably still is one of my favorite places. The smell of the waffle cones, and the sound of the horse and buggies going across the cobble stone streets.
     There are many places to eat and of course little shops that sell numerous items to attract the out of town folk.
     Usually when we fly into Sacramento this is the first place we go and grab something to eat. We have found a few favorite places :)

My3sonz and "The Delta King" which is now a Hotel.

     When I graduated from High School......that Fall I left for Christian Life College in Stockton, California  (my poor mother was left all alone, hindsight....).

  On this trip to California we were able to go by the old Bible College where my husband and I both attended. It is now a rehab place, but "Oh, what memories".
      They let us look around outside some of the areas, but not all of it.  Many of the buildings have been changed and the campus looks somewhat different.

 The front parking lot of the Bible College (and yes, the rental car agency gave us some cool cars to drive, anything to help the mundane drive up Hwy 99).

 Taking pics and reminiscing

 Bible College on Cherokee Lane

 These new fences over to the left kinda made me forget where this pic was at, but while I was a student this first door to the right was the music classroom. Such a familiar sight with a gazillion memories.


This is the Church across the street from the Bible College, we never used this one for Chapel, we used one down the street. However, I believe my Bishop was here when they used this building.

Sammy's 24th Birthday

   Sammy's 24th Birthday.......I say this every time, but where does the time go?? I remember the day he was born, the time has fluttered away like a leaf blowing in the wind.

     So happy and proud to call him ours, thankful for the Blessings of God!!

Caleb doing his thing, not exactly sure what it is though :-)

Picture Albums, What are they?


      For those of you that are over 15, you may remember the little book that has sadly almost been forgotten....... the picture album.

     I remember looking at photos for hours when I was a kid, trying to relive the images in my mind of vacations in the past. And/or trying to figure out who in the WORLD was that person in the picture!!!

     My boys also enjoyed growing up with the experience of pulling all of the picture albums off the shelf and going one by one through them all. Of course no one wanted to put them back on the shelf.....

     This new generation only knows of photos on hard drives or random picture books we have had someone print out for us. While I will agree with you those books are quite amazing... I have tried having some printed myself, but most of our pics are hidden somewhere on a computer or cell phone.

     This blogs purpose was for my immediate family and also for all of our out of town family to enjoy those pics that maybe they would never see but would enjoy sharing the moment with us.

      So all this being said, if you're not family and you look at this blog over the next few months while I play catch-up, you may wonder how Christmas may appear two times in the next few weeks or wonder many things!! LOL

      Just remember when you look at this blog, you are going to the shelf and pulling out a photo album......

    Pictures mark time, yet at the same time they are timeless!
