Our Grandkids are visiting for their spring break this week. I don’t know who loves who more, Andrew or our dog Hailey but they are inseparable. Andrew was playing his DS and it looks like Hailey was intently watching. This picture was just to cute not to share:

How cute is this!

Many of you know our grandkids and have met Andrew who has spent some weeks with us the last couple summers.  Well, he ran into the bleachers at a soccer game last night and today his eye is swollen shut.  But here he is still smiling! He is a precious little boy! Love you Andrew!!!



Colton’s Football Game!

On the last day of my vacation I watched Colton play football, in the rain! But his team did very well beating the other team 36-0! It is always so much fun to watch the kids play and so happy for them when they win!

Colton is number 73

Texas Roadhouse!

After 3 days of no power I am back on the computer and back to sharing my trip with you!

After the girls soccer game we all went out to Texas Roadhouse for dinner.  I loved it!!!! Had shrimp and the best and biggest sweet potato ever! Here is our son Rick, daughter Becky and their families. It was a wonderful night together.  And if you ever get a chance to go to Texas Roadhouse you will love it too!
