Well, here it is in pictures. We had such a wonderful time, but what really mattered was that mom had such a good time. It was, after all, her 80th birthday party!
Mt. St. Helens was magnificent. So hard to imagine the power of a volcano.
To my wonderful sisters, thank you for making it so much fun. To my niece and great niece, thanks for joining us for part of the time.
And to mom, you're such a wonderful inspiration to us all...
