Last week we had my daughter and her family from Colorado here for a visit.   It is too easy to forget just how wonderful it is to have children around.  It is true that there were times when the noise level was a few decibels higher than I am accustomed to,  but it was so nice to have them here.   I do have 5 grandsons that live here in Vegas (all four of my granddaughters live out of state).  I thoroughly enjoy seeing them on a regular basis.  I only get to see the five who live in Colorado and the three that live in Texas, once or twice a year.   Between visits there can be some significant changes, especially in the older ones.   Don’t get me wrong,  I love seeing the parents too,  but there is something about  the grandkids………..


It was also very nice to have so many of my children and grandchildren together at one time.   Last Wednesday we spent the day celebrating Kay’s Birthday.   All of my kids, and grandkids except those living in Texas were here.  We missed the Texans but enjoyed having the rest together.  


Michelle, Mike and Family,  thanks for coming.  Jaidi, Justin and Family,  wish you could have been here,  but we will see you in a few weeks.   Nigel and Z,  Kevin, Cass and Family, and Jeff,  thanks for making last week so very nice. 


Love you guys.
