We were excited to have Luke come to Yakima and spend a full 5 days with us last week. We had a great time just hanging out and enjoying each other's company. I also had fun trying to incorporate asparagus into every other dinner as we were able to get all we wanted for free from my boss, Mark. He's the avid gardner where I got all my raspberries and blackberries for jam last summer.
Luke and I got to visit Snoqualmie Falls while Lloyd was meeting at Double K. It's a beautiful and tall waterfall. We took the 1 mile hike to the river and back, which was pretty steep, but I was glad I went. We saw some beautiful scenery on the way down. The way back up was spent trying to get my breath on 3 or 4 occasions, but before I knew it, we were back at the top. After picking Lloyd up, we drove to the beautiful Bavarian-like city of Leavenworth and went out for some great schnitzel and spaetzle (forgive my spelling if it's wrong).
Sunday evening came too quickly and we had to drop Luke off at the Yakima airport to go back.
We sure enjoy it when the boys' can come and visit.
By the way, the sheets are clean on the bed in the spare room, and you're welcome to come for a visit!
Last week on April 21st Jonathan and I drove up to San Jose in my Smart Car to the dealership where I bought my car.
I got a letter in the mail a couple of months ago that I was able to take my car into the dealership to get the "Smart 2.0 Checkup". They did a few things to my car including installing a bigger battery, upgrading the firmware/software for the transmission and engine, checked and updated smog and VIN stickers, as well as replaced my sun screen in the headliner/moon roof of my car, as it had broken.
While the trip is about 2 1/2 hours, it was worth it because I got all those things done on my car for free, and it gave Jonathan and I some good time to hang out.
I also booked my plane tickets this week to fly from Fresno to Yakima on May 12th. I will be visiting my parents for about 5 days that week. I haven't seen them since December, so it will be nice to be with them for a bit. Plus, Mother's Day is the Sunday before.
