This is a brief update covering the highlights of the almost two years from July 2007 to May 2009. I started the blog in 2007, but got lazy and stopped posting. I hope to make regular entries in the future.
First the most important highlight, the birth of our second grandchild, Nate,
in October 2007.
Proud parents & Nate

In December 2007, we sold our Hitchhiker 5th wheel trailer and pickup truck
And bought a 2003 motorhome, a 40 foot long Phaeton, which we call the "Bug". It looks a little like a bug with the windows for eyes, the black mirrors for antennas and kind of a mouth in the area of the license plate.

After our winter of 2007/2008 visiting Brett & Dawn and the grandkids in
San Antonio and Sarita in Lewisville we went to the Northeastern US and far Eastern . We left Canada April 1st and returned in mid September. We drove the Bug 8,400 miles, roundtrip. Also we drove the Blazer another 5,000 miles sightseeing. We visited Lewisville Boston, Mass. and the coast of Maine. From there we continued into New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, . One of these days I’ll create a series of entries detailing this trip. Canada
We especially loved the 7 weeks we spent visiting
Newfoundland, . Canada
We spent the fall, winter and spring of 2008/2009 visiting with Sarita in
Lewisville and the grandkids is . It has been a great 8 months or so visiting with family, especially San Antonio
Our summer plans have us leaving
San Antonio, June 13th and spending the next four months in the mountains of central Colorado, returning to in early October for Nate’s second birthday, San Antonio Ehren’s fifth birthday in December, and of course being here for Christmas.
