On Wednesday I had a break from the norm - as if there is a norm around here. Kathy, her mom, Vi and I drove down to Washougal and picked up my aunt Lani. We then continued on up the Columbia River Gorge to Stevenson where we met Grandma Nellie at the Skamania Lodge for lunch. Lots of laughs and good food. Grandma had dessert waiting for us at home so we went a little further along the road to Carson and had a delicious apple cake and a good visit with Grandpa. It was a long day but great fun.
