The Picture at the Bottom of the Page Was Taken When Christy And I Visited Jim & Vicki In September 1998 .. the Others by Jim & Vicki Mattson ...

This is Lisa and Keiths new baby girl at 4 day's (Lisa is Vickis sister). Kelly Ann Combs was born on December 1 at 10:24 am. Mom and baby went home 12/4 and are both doing fine.

Jim Writes 6/4/01  "Just returned from a spring camping trip near our local Volcano (Mount Baker - known by the local tribes as "Steep"). Vicki stands across from one of its lakes (Baker Lake, of course). While driving to this spot, we saw a black bear (a first for me here in Washington). When George was here, we approached Baker from the north until snow and clouds. Here is an unobstructed view. From our perch we could see steam rising from a vent on this active volcano... life on the edge!!

Jim Mattson wrote ........ Hi all, I thought I would send this picture to ya'll that Vicki snapped last week when we were at the Skagit Tulip Festival. The picture captures the scene pretty well... Tulips, daffodils, and our local volcano, Mount Baker in the distance. Mom has a watercolor that she bought when she attended the festival during her visit here.
