In July, 2008 - that's 2008, now, we went to the beach with Paul and Christy y little Kiera. I am finally starting up the blog pictures again, so I thought I would go back to where I left off.

On that same visit, we also went to the club and got some good pictures, which I'm sure you have already seen.

Mom and I got to say goodbye to our little lovebug. It was great to have you all here - even if it was too short.

In January of 2009, we went to the beach with Jon and Kelly and kids, and Chrissy and Tory.

During that visit we did get a ride in up to Los Naranjos.

In June, 2009, we went to Seattle to see Paul's graduation and celebrate my folk's 60 wedding anniversary (no pictures). We stayed in the RV - and a tent. We had a really good time.

We went up to see Snoqualmie Falls . . .

And finally the big day came . . .

Then Mom and I went up to Leavenworth for our anniversary. We went to see Chelan Lake.

We also saw beautiful gardens in Winatchee.

After all the excitement, it was on to Kennewick - and putting up a swingset for Tory.

We were in Corpus Christi, Texas in June to visit with Lisa, Reagan and Kennedi (Todd was in Spokane, WA doing training) and had a great time. We spent a lot of time in the pool with Reagan, who was VERY atrevida!

Mom, in her favorite pose (her arms full of grandkids):

Me, too!!
Then we went to the park and had a great time on the slides and see-saws.

Kennedi was watching quietly from the sidelines.

Then we went to the kid's musuem, saw reproductions of Columbus' boats, made in Spain and floated across the ocean in 1992.

It was, of course, exhausting work and we had to catch up on our beauty sleep. I was very well taken care of by Kennedi.

The girls went on a merry-go-round in the mall. Reagan wasn't so sure at first but she really got into the "swing" of things.

Mom and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with a great meal on the water in Corpus Christi. It was a very special time.

Our last bit of business was to take the harbour ferry for a tour. It was great fun to be on the water.

Reagan loved to talk on her "phone".
