 It's snowing in Seattle! I'm excited because this is the first winter I've had an all-wheel-drive car.

Fall Yard Cleanup

Noe and his guys came out to mow and do a general clean-up of our yard today. It is a beautiful fall day so I took some photos.

Hunter Derby

Mary and I drove out to Carnation to catch some action at the Evergreen Classic today. This is a picture from the $10,000 hunter derby. We got to visit with some of the show horses in their stalls, too.
