Wow, I keep saying what a great country this is and how much we have enjoyed meeting all these new people, but it's even more fun getting back together with family and we really have some special relatives, everyone we have visited this year has gone out of their way to show us around their area and treat us so good. FAMILY beats all, can't wait to see the ones back in MN. Anyway back to Saturday, Kate & Dick picked us up and took us out thru the Yakima river canyon road(goes to Ellensburg) Great scenery . We then headed to Toppenish, the town has 67 huge murals painted on the buildings and have tours in June but we picked up a book and found a bunch of them(Dave wouldn't let me find them all) Then went to the Indian reservation(Casino) and saw their huge RV park, really nice and they rent out TeePee's for $25. a night. The casinos here are much different than we have, they don't have any glitter or lights or flashing stuff, just nice clean buildings and lots of nice parking(free too) Had lunch in Union Gap and then Dick BarBQued and Kate had 2 nice salads(pasta & pink frozen) and a rice dish plus lemon bars for desert. We both have decided that as much fun as we have had so far, visiting relatives around the country WILL be a priority, it's just so nice to see them and meet their families. Thanks Dick,Kate,Shaun & Nick for the nice visit.
