Room with a view


















The last few days have been busy with family fun. Our youngest daughter, Katie, has returned from her deployment in the Middle East and has been able to travel to NW Florida to spend some time with us. She and her boyfriend Dain are staying in a penthouse condo on Navarre Beach, so we have been spending a lot of time there enjoying the views.

We are doing the usual family things, food, games, catching up and just having fun. Katie brought the many birthday cards that friends across the country and overseas sent her while she was deployed. These were very much appreciated by her and we all enjoyed looking at them again. It was so nice that so many people took the time to do this.

The games were lively and produced a lot of laughs. Katie brought some gifts from the region, which was enjoyed by all. Sunday morning Anneke made traditional Dutch pancakes and bacon.(pannekoeken en spek)

Tomorrow, they will be heading home to Colorado. We will be looking at some motorhome maintenance items and a possible trip to Gulf Shores, Al to visit with some friends.

Glad Katie is home safe and sound. Even better that you had a chance to have a great visit with her.

And now she's off to the USAF Academy? How did that happen? ;c)
