This Summer had Sue and I and Robbie hosting our two families of grand kids, first the Appah clan (Paxton, who appears here with Robbie), Phoebe, Payton and Parker and then the Garcia kids, Olivia and Nickie. Both sets of grand kids went to the Oregon Coast in August, with the spacious Caprice Classic providing seatbelts and a huge trunk for all. Most memorable moment: when Paxton followed in Big Brother Parker's footsteps and activated a fire alarm. Paxton did practice one-upsmanship by performing his trick in a crowded multiplix, sucessfully emptying out 8 (count'em 8!) theaters.

Yesterday we embarked on a trip that we had been yearning to make, to Silver Creek Falls, near Silverton, Oregon. We had a great time, accompanied by our faithful CKCS "Robbie". A short hike (less than a half of a mile) rewarded us with some beautiful scenery, set in a primeval forest with old growth trees, ferns and streams. We captured some digital photos of the area and brought them out with us, for your enjoyment.
