Who are these cute people and where is this idyllic place?

Paul McDonald came to see me about a special painting for his wife, Amy.  They had been doing a great deal of work to establish a destination store of local produce and country stuff.  This was back in the ____, (fill in blanks.)   Their son, Ben, was 14 at the time and their business in the town of Donald, just south of Wapato, was just off the new Freeway, I-82, that runs through the Yakima Valley.  They made a poster of this image, and sold it at the store.  Paul is a winemaker and 4th generation orchardist in the Yakima Valley.
Amy is a lover of animals, only after all of her gifted family and well documented grandson, Sam.
