Emerald Downs Horse Racing

Last Sunday was Father’s Day and to celebrate, we took Dad out to Emerald Downs, the local horse racing track. We couldn’t believe how busy it was! None of us had ever seen such a crowd there.

Trip to Leavenworth

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I went to Leavenworth with Grandma and her sister, Martha Sue. Leavenworth is a Bavarian town just over 2 hours east of Seattle, on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains.
