Spring is definitely upon us here in the Inland Northwest. A 90+ heat wave has caused some serious snow melt and the Spokane River crested several feet above flood stage last weekend. We went down to Riverfront Park with the Melbys' and took photos ([see the album here](http://picasaweb.google.com/kellytadams/SpokaneRiver)). Also there is a [small album](http://picasaweb.google.com/kellytadams/Spring2008) of macro photos I took of various spring flowers in our yard. Film is expensive, but digital is free, right?
In other news, Jakki is terribly excited about how close she is to graduation. I've been brewing beer for her graduation party, and we are working on a slide show to show at the pinning ceremony. She's on the graduation committee, assuring that things will be done right :)
