11: The wading pool at Highland Park We discovered that it was built in 1937. Older than us!

12: "The pool and backstop are over 50 years old!...I only got to be on the team because Dad was a coach!"

13: Look at this field! I played Little League here about 45 years ago.

14: To Kevin, the field at Highland Park looked small. | To Kathy, the field looked big like in our childhood.

15: Kevin was fascinated with Highland Park and the school. | Karen and Kathy thought that some of the boards on the bleachers looked like the original ones.

16: Denny Jr High

17: Like branches on a tree, our lives may grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.

18: We had picnics at Lincoln Park. | At Green Lake we walked, biked, roller skated, and watched fireworks.

19: Seattle World's Fair was a big deal for us. Kevin was in elementary school, Kathy in jr high, and Karen in high school.



22: Tent Camping, Canoe, Trailer, Beach Combing

24: Strolling Lake Fenwick Park | Kevin found that the park had been upgraded. It used to be an old fishing hole. | Karen found Dragonflies

25: An alligator at Lake Fenwick?

26: We make up silly songs. | We love to laugh at similar things. | We tell stories... over and over and over. OH NO!!! | We love the Lord. | We enjoy the beauty of nature.

27: What an interesting, fun day we had! Reminiscing... Seeing our old house,.. Checking out the schools... Sharing memories... After the year of 2009 - 2010, it encouraged me to get up and move on.
