We had two weeks in LaCenter, Washington at Adam, Carrie and Lyla's. Seeing them every day was a delight. The drive from the freeway to their house is through well-kept, small farms. The tree leaves are turning fast and are beautiful. You view Mt. St. Helens from their house.
We parked in the back of the house so we are separate, but together. I love the feeling of being close enough for them to pop in as they can. Lyla is only a year old, but soon she will escape her house and run over to Grandma and Papa's like her cousins do when we are in Wallowa. I wish they lived near each other. But Adam and Carrie will always live on the west side of the state and Matt, Heather and the boys will always be on the east side. And Uncle Seth will be in Chicago!
Lyla has turned one! She is walking, although working on her balance. She climbed the three steps in our RV without hesitation. It was her first step climbing experience. While here she has learned "So Big" and to whinny like a horse and moo like a cow. I'm working on "love you," how to say "sorry" in sign language and how to "be easy" when she turns pages in a book. She is so fun...full of the dickens.
