Trip to Washington

I'm waiting for Ingrid to come today so I may have to cut this short. But I wanted to show you the pictures of the Garden lights in Bellvue, WA. We went to this botanical Garden Where they made all these vignettes of flowers from the tiny christmas lights. It was the most amazing thing. If you can imagine taking a string of lights and turning it into a flower, or a peacock or a swan!
The Seccond picture is of the part of my family that was with me. The guy in the red jacket is my son Randy and with him is his wife Virginia. They live close to me here in Victorville (about and hour away). Above Virginia is my oldest Wendy, they live in Tacoma. I won't go into all the rest right now because I want to concentrate on the lights. The third picture was an open area and there was a lot more to it than in this picture. Now the last picture. IF you can inagine this was on a lawn. Again, all I could say was AMAZING. I have a few more pictures I would like to share, but I will save them for another time.
I wanted to get a picture of Mt. Baldy ( a ski resort near here) covered with snow, but it's hiding today. I'll keep watching and maybe I'll be able to get a good picture later. The snow should be up there until sometime in Feb. I have some pictures of the snow on our way up to WA. But, I'm sure all of you in the east would rather not see more snow. I have a few more from the garden, one is of a spider and a fly. Just a teaser. More later.

Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. I've not seen such concentrated flower lights before. Nice to see a few of your family, too. =)
