Please excuse the mess... I am currently rearranging my blog. :)


For grandpa...

This posting is dedicated to my grandpa.
He loved Washington with its native american history, stories, and art.

His father came from Norway and my grandpa lived most of his life in Poulsbo, WA, also known as "Little Norway". There are many Norwegian influences in this little city.

He used to love to travel as well. For some time in his youth he lived in Alaska.

He also loved to travel to Africa on hunting trips. Along with helping his local community.

That was just a small, TINY, tidbit of my Grandpa's wonderful life. I'll miss him.
