Time to Catch Up

Our trip to Kansas was great! There were 10 cousins there of the 16 of us that are still alive. We lost Richard 15 years ago from a heart attack. My aunt and uncle looked wonderful and they have a grand time at their anniversary celebration! It was hot and humid down there and we all enjoyed the air conditioning.

I spent 5 days with my new little great-nephew in ND. I had so much fun! We went to the mall, we took walks, wow, we had a super time! He's starting to "talk" so we had some very profound conversations! His parents went to Las Vegas to see Celine Dionne and they said she was terrific!

This weekend my kids came home and we went to see Weird Al Yankovic! It was quite a concert. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the carnival after the concert was over. My kids met up with high school friends and had some good "catching up" time.

Today both kids headed home. My daughter and her boyfriend headed back to ND and my son went east to Iowa. We're hoping his wife will soon get to come to the US from England. Immigration is mighty slow. Their first wedding anniversary is Oct. 28 so we're hoping she'll be back here by then. She had to return to England the first part of Feb.

I think our travels are over for a long time. We both need our home time. We're going to see the Oak Ridge Boys tonight as that is the group that closes the week of activities. It's right here in town so we won't have to travel.
