It’s par for the course….

I’ve photographed Wyatt and his brother over the years and now it’s time for senior pics. How time flies! A handsome young man, we headed over to the park and did a walk from top to bottom. He’s into golf and tennis making the images more meaningful. Here’s a peek….

 

A visit to Volunteer Park

I had a few moments to spare before a meeting and pulled into Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. Did you know the land was purchased in 1876 and first used as a cemetery!? and then later as this city park! The reservoir was built in 1901. The park was redesigned in1903 y the Olmsted Bros. and the water tower was built in 1907. Pretty cool to see what is have become…and nothing like enjoying what’s in your own backyard!

One never knows when IBD will strike. My sister has battled with Crohn’s disease for some 30 years. Drugs, surgery, emergency surgery, ostomy, ostomy take-down; the saga continues. But living a healthy life is possible with the help and support found at the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation.

Did you know: Over 1.6 million children and adults in the US have IDB for which there is currently no cure.

  • One of the fastest growing populations being diagnosed with UC or Crohn’s is children UNDER the age of 18.
  • Millions of families know of or have at least one person affected by IBD.

Mayor Ed Murray at Fauntleroy Food Fest

Mayor Ed Murray joined local West Seattle residents at the Fauntleroy Community Association’s annual Fauntleroy Food Fest on Tuesday, March 21 at The Hall at Fauntleroy in the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse.

Returning to his stomping grounds he visited with local vendors and chatted with community members.

The annual event is an opportunity to mingle with neighbors, learn about organizations serving our neighborhood, and sample fine food provided by Fauntleroy-area restaurants and caterers.

The FCA was founded in 1980 and deals with concerns that impact the local community and it’s residents. Over the years they have worked on ferry and traffic issues, public safety, restored local salmon habitat, built parks and playgrounds and connected with the people of the community.
