Take A Picture

I just recently returned from visiting my family in the Pacific Northwest and also attending the U.S. Open Golf tournament held in my home town of Tacoma, WA.  We were able to share some wonderful family experiences which we recorded with hundreds of photos.  This one was taken as a four generation memory of my…
