|Miriah, Danny and Aiden|
Hah! Immediate change of plans... Crystal met us at the gate and extended our passes for 3 days than went over to rent our spot for another day as we dashed to the hospital and promptly got lost... wrong hospital, oops! Finally, with a phone call from Kim, we left our bright green buggy with the valet people and headed up to the waiting room.
Later on, I was able to visit the crowded birthing room for a short time, but there really was already a lot of folks there. It wasn't long before I was asked to leave so Miriah could get some rest. She had a hard delivery and deserved a good rest... I BELIEVE EVERYONE THERE DESERVED A GOOD REST. It was after six before our great grandson finally made his debut. He is pink and perfect, and I cried at the sight of him. All further details, I will leave for the parents to disclose.
|Early Birthday Dinner|
Crystal and her family threw an early birthday dinner for Richard. Ronnie made a delicious meal including beefalo meat, corn on the cob, some great mashed potatoes and wonderful green beans, AND biscuits! Plus, there were Richard's favorite oatmeal raisin cookies and ice cream.

But the best treat of all is that everyone gathered there... Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I loved posting them.
Jordan, an award winning artist performed a very advanced original composition for us on the piano. We were indeed duly impressed!
Jacob and Jared were flying out to Boston, leaving that night to spend some time with their dad. Hard to believe these young men are so grown up!

We didn't get good pictures of everyone, but had a good time and were blessed to see them all. It had been too long. This is just a sampling of our wonderful family... of course, we aren't partial or anything, but in all truth, these re some fine looking and acting folks and there are more like them scattered all over the place!
As long as we've been at the base RV park, we have done little cleaning of the exteriors of our vehicles... too hot with record-breaking temps as high as 105 scorching degrees. But after a stop in LaJunta to visit even more lovely people, we will head for the hills and cooler climates where we can give the coach and the toad a proper bath.
