Our last evening in Michigan was spent with Victoria and Rick
They spoiled us with delectable lamb chops
We can't wait to spoil them in Virginia!

My new place of employment

Me and the boys upon arrival to the TLF (temporary living facility)
The military LOVES acronyms
It is a very nice two bedroom, full kitchen, full bath, and living room apartment with hotel like services...can't complain

We spent an afternoon and evening taking in the beauty of the Sonntag farm,
which is again becoming fully operational and self-sustaining thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of Bobby Wood

Back from the coast...
we spent a lovely afternoon & evening with our dear friends
Wendy and Andy in Portland
We explored The Pearl
Had great coffee
Grilled Salmon
and drank in great conversation over a glass of Merlot

Jamison Park water fountain in Portland's Pearl District

Thaddeus is not shy
He was drawn to playing with the big kids
and even took their splashes
