Hello everyone,  looks like it is Wednesday again and we are always happy to have you join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We hope you will enjoy playing along with us this week.  This is Judi hosting you from the Pacific Northwest!

First off, I hope everyone in the US had a wonderful Father's Day. No matter what day Father's Day is celebrated, it is a great day to honor Dads and to show our love appreciation for all they do.  It was a busy day for me as our family is rapidly the dinner crowd gets bigger with each event...which means more cooking and more cleaning up!  But all in all it's always a fun event as everyone pitches in to help out in one way or another.

Next I would like to share a few photos from a hike my husband and I  took last year at Paradise on Mt Rainier.  Just like to share a little of the beauty of the great Pacific Northwest!

Now let me share with you our winner for last week's challenge:
