Columbia State Park

What a fun day we had today! We ventured to Columbia State Park for Gold Rush Days! The girls really enjoyed it and so did us adults.........lots of walking was done and panning for gold too! Of course I did take a few (okay........tons) of pictures. Would I go somewhere and not take pictures?? So, here you go........................


A fast picture before we roam the town!

Teahouse........this is the place Dan and I love! Last year we had lunch here.
