I decided that I better bring this blog more up to date. Mason Ozmun graduated from Mountain Crest High School and got his mission call to the Czech Prauge Mission. We are all very excited for Mason
The middle of June Tana and I went on a trip to the Seattle are to visit with her son Lou and Grandson Brice and then rented a car to drive down to Portland where we were able to visit with Bob's son, Darin and family. Darin, Kelly and Taylor are leaving for Switzerland for two years where Darin will be working. Taylor had a dance recital while we were there, which we were able to attend. This picture is of Taylor with their good friends Tripti and Manali.
After visiting with Darin and family we drove over to the Oregon coast where we had rented a small condo on the beach. We spent most of our time looking out at the beautiful view from our second floor deck.
This is the view of the Yaquina Head lighthouse from our condo.
