We went to Leavenworth with mom. It was really crazy tons of people where there since it's so close to the 4th of July. Leavenworth is a town ~ 30 min from Wenatchee, it has a Bavarian theme the McDonalds, and Safeway the post office everything is decorated in the Bavarian theme. It's pretty cool, and the mountains are a good backdrop for the setting. There are a lot of festivals nearly every weekend. I have been told that Christmas time is the busiest.
We are all still grieving dad's passing, I think it will take a long time before we return to anything half-way normal.
We found out there was a tragedy with our 'adopted family' back in Oregon. We were in the Neah-Kah-Nie branch. It was a little church that we were really involved with. Our branch President's son was killed in a car crash. Barlow called them and the family seemed to be okay but I suspect they were in shock just like we were. I still can't believe my dad has died it seem so bizarre I still can't wrap my mind around it.
Mom's been doing really well, at least she acts like it. She's been whipping my spoiled dog into shape I've never thought of her as a dog person but I'm quite impressed.
I know most of us are taking one day at a time.
