David in Toledo, Spain

Today we received a telephone call from Spain. Our son David is there for three weeks taking classes on the language and culture of Spain. He is having a fabulous time. He sent a picture of him with the city of Toledo behind him. He has been to Madrid and has been able to see palaces, cathedrals and museums. He says the cathedrals are beyond what he could have ever imagined. We are anxious to hear more about his trip and see pictures. He was able to receive a grant for this trip which makes it even more fun. He is staying in the home of an older woman (50ish, of you can call that old) and she has cooked some good meals for him. What a great experience for him! Lesli and the kids are holding down the fort and are surely missing him and I know he misses them.

Arizona Here We Come

We were able to go to Arizona to meet our newest grandson and he is a beautiful, sweet baby!
It was fun to stay with Kristin, Darcy, Parker, Avery and little Ryder. We had a great time! We spent a lot of time in the pool and of course in the air conditioning because it was 114 degrees outside (yuck!). We spent the 4th of July at Reed and Debra Myers home. We were treated to a great dinner and were able to renew friendships. We also visited Patty and Charles (Mike's sister) and I saw their beautiful home for the first time. Two year old Avery walked into the house and seeing their large dogs said look at the horses! The kids loved the dogs. We had a wonderful Italian dinner and had a fun day of swimming and visiting. We also went out to dinner with Mike and Debbie McGuire and it was fun to catch up with them. So we had a great time seeing friends and family and just being together. I wish Kristin and Darcy lived closer because we miss them already!
