We were lucky enough to have Al's dad come & stay with us for most of April. It was fantastic to be able to show him around the place & for him to spend time with us all. We went out to the Aquarium, Pike's Market place, to a local brewery (where he corrupted Hugh away from milk & onto beer).

Alex, Alan & Ben also went for a boys "road trip". Not 100% sure what went on but they had a fantastic time, enjoying exploring new areas together. They went down to the Columbia River Gorge, stayed in a little place called Hood & then went out to the coast to explore further. Both Alex & Alan said the Gorge was stunning - but sorry no pics yet.
