August 31 – Mt Ranier

Dropped Josiah off at PAX conference this morning.

Belinda and I drove to Mt Ranier.  It was beautiful scenery, but it took all day.

Took a walk up a path at one of the high points to get wildflower pictures.

Read more of Brene Braun’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection.”

Talked to a family at Burger King that were headed to Yellowstone.  He gave me tips on the southwestern Washington area.

meals – fried eggs and toast, picked up a couple of sandwiches from a grocery store to take to Mt Ranier, Burger King.

Josiah called by 6pm for us to pick him up.  By the time we got there he found more to do, but came on out since we were there.  He enjoyed the conference, and has 2 more days.
