Seattle Sandfest to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound

This is the wonderfully sculpture that our Bigs and Littles created! It's the Fremont Troll, one a much smaller scale. If you look to the right on the back of the VW bug is our logo! BBBSPS ROCKS!!!

       "Sweet Dreams"
  The most intense of the sand sculptures!
Part 2 of the "Sweet Dreams"
So much detail!

Seattle Art Museum logo and building

For the next 3 years Seattle Sandfest will be donating the proceeds to BBBSPS! I am not sure how long Sandfest as been around but it is truly amazing to see these sculptures that are only made from water and sand. It takes place at Westlake Center in the middle of downtown. Volunteers spend at least 8 hours making their sculptures. On Saturday, August 23rd I worked a couple hours taking donations. It was awesome to see the kids face light out when they saw them!

Eastern Europe

Bill and I will be flying in and out of Berlin. The plan is to go to Prague, Auschwitz, Krakow, and Budapest. We have our hotel for when we land in Berlin and when we leave. No other reservations have been made. We are looking forward to having the flexibility to stay in one country as long or as short as we'd like. 23 more days to go and counting!!!
