  • Camping at Camp Grande

    My dad is and brother are fishing off of Vancouver Island, so my mom decided to take a vacation too.  She had my dad park their trailer up at Camp Grande on Camano Island, got Lydia and Luke and invited Bradley, the kids and me to join her for a few days.  We were ever […]

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
