Auntie Claire & Mom came for a visit!
After a loooong week over the mountains in Olympia and Yelm, we finally called it quits and caravanned over with mom & Claire back home! My wonderful mother-in-law and auntie Claire from Hawaii spent lots of time visiting with us at home, going with us over to Amber's house and my parents house. They even got dressed up with us Sunday morning and went with us to church (AND convinced Tim to go too, he's never been to church in his life!!). Some of the highlights of our trip were the meals we shared (including produce from our garden), eating cherries straight off the tree at Ambers house, shopping in all the little Mexican stores (they got a kick out of Fiesta Foods!), visiting my own mom & dad's house to harvest walnuts, listen to mom's harp playing, and my dad EVEN gave mom (mary) a motorcycle ride! She hasn't been on one in 32 years. Then church was a definite highlight, to share our beliefs with them even a little bit was very special to us both. We said a tearful goodbye this afternoon to auntie, she is so very special to us and it has been a treasure to get to know her better and make memories with her!
