7th Anniversary Walk 04/26/15
By Heidi Cardona
On Sunday Artie and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary by checking out a walking trail not to far from our house. The trail parallels the Savannah River. Such a beautiful serene walk we had. We had Michael with us so it was all serene because he started having a meltdown half way up the trail. :( Our turn around point was the locks and a park that had restrooms. Michael fell asleep on the way back so we didnít stop as many times as we did on our way up the trail. We saw a few snakes on the trail (yeah no thanks). Artie made sure we were going to be bit and not following us. We hurried along after that. We walked a total of 8.5 miles. Whew! We were ready to jump in the river at that point. The high was 85 degrees but when we finished it was only 77 but felt like a 100 :) Must have been all the walking that made us so hot!! We drank lots of water to make sure we stayed hydrated. When we got home we all got showers to make us feel human again. Later on that day we decided to BBQ some chicken and I made a macaroni salad with tuna as well. Later on we had some Ice cream to top off a wonderful day! Here are few pictures of what we got to see on our walk. Enjoy!

We decide to pull out one of our backyard trees and replace it with a Birch. There is a lot of water in the back and Birch trees like lots of water. Here are a few pictures of the new tree.

It was later in the afternoon when we saw that the tide was out. We haven't taken very many pictures of the tide out. So while we were at the pier we took a few for you to enjoy.

Our friend Dee invited Cheryl and I to attend the ceremony for her son who is becoming a Buddhist Monk. It was an interesting experience and fascinating to see. It was a colorful place and a nice day.

Easter Bus 04/04/15
By John Schmit
The Easter Bus was on the streets in Redmond and Bellevue this year. Everyone enjoyed the decorations. Many people took pictures. I even took a picture of a group enjoying the bus and they didn't even ride! On Saturday I handed out candy, which is always a hit. Many thanks to Morgan, who took the pictures of me.
