Travel

For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Party Time at Michael and Laura's

We all converged on Michael and Laura's home for their first family gathering, today. Laura and Michael are excellent hosts. We met Laura's cousin, James, who lives in Atlanta. It's about a 50 mile drive from my house to Michael's and about 85 from Lisa and John's house. Susan was on call so she couldn't make it. She hung out with Jack and took him shopping at PetSmart and for a walk at the nature center.

Keely, Michael's daughter was working until 5:30 so the other four girls took the golf cart and went over to say hi. It was good to see all the cousins having such a good time.

I tried to get some good pictures of all the girls together, but that's like nailing jello to the wall! They are all so silly, but that's the way I love them. I took over 80 pictures, but just chose a few for the blog.

  1. What a wonderful family you have. They seem to be having such a great time together. Congrats to Michael and Laura and to you too for being able to go and be part of the fun. I know Jack didn't mind missing it since he has his second favorite girl giving him attention.

    1. Thank you, Sherry. I'm partial, but I think they are wonderful, too. They do have a good time together; many times at my expense! Endless "Remember when Mom..." stories.

      I was glad Jack could hang out with his girlfriend, too.

  3. Love these pictures. These are the best kind of memories. Too bad Susan couldn't go but it sure worked out good for Sir Jack.

    1. Hi, Sandie. Yeah, I missed Susan being there, but it did work out well for Jack. Laura's cousin brought his adorable little French Bulldog, but he did not like other dogs. He went after Bogey, and he's probably a quarter of Bogey's size--quite a fight. (Jack would have run). James said, "He thinks he's the big dog." Fortunately, James brought his crate so there were no more confrontations.
