We were fortunate enough to make a second trip out to Western Washington this year to see Amber, Drew, and Silas.  We got to spend a lot of time with Si – walking around the yard and on the forest trail, playing in the sandbox, reading, etc.  In one photo below, you can see him standing next to the water faucet (he needed to put water in the sand).  He also uses his crocodile walker as a car to drive, now that he doesn’t need it for walking.  Their new deck is great for many things including reading, eating, and spinning wool from Shannon’s sheep.  Our time with them was much too short, but was grand, indeed!  We will do more postings from the trip when we get the time – probably within the next week.
