Helping move Jen, Jason, and kids

The new house is in Clarkdale, Arizona just 45 min. from Sedona
Summer is so excited to have her own room with a great window and view of the palms and fountain

Syd has opted for the denim and red bedding

Wish you could see the great view from here - you'll just have to go visit to take it all in

We had time for a great hamburger at Bings in old town Clarkdale - what a cute city!

Terry was in charge of packing the stuff in and it was hot, hot, hot!

The kids loved riding in the truck - especially when it was empty and Pops would hit the speed bumps without slowing down!

We all had to take turns as lifeguard as Ty wants to be in the pool all the time

Syd and Ty taking their first leap into their very own pool!

My great friends gave Becky a wonderful shower on Aug. 10th
Karen Mc Craneys beautiful backyard was the location

Karen, Rae, Connie, Heidi, and Rhonda did a wonderful job planning and executing a great evening

Becky and some of my "old" friends!

It was great to see old neighbors and relatives

Wow,everyone was so generous and I will have the best dressed granddaughter - it better be a girl!

Our "House Swap" to Las Vegas

Jen suggested we do a "House Swap" with her in-laws for a few days. All of them came to our house and Becky & Brads and we got to go to Gary & Maries beautiful home in Las Vegas. We are sure we got the best of the deal! We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend - well, except for the drive home in horrible traffic Sunday!
We love watching our grandbaby grow!

We got to see two of Beckys old friends, Cassie and Hayley, and got to meet Cassies baby, Scarlett - what a cutie!

We golfed on their putting green and played bocce ball

We swam in the wonderful pool

We saw a great show - the Beatles Love Cirque du Soleil

We walked the Strip and checked out the cool hotels and Bellagio water show

Becky and I started the babies quilt

And finished the top - isn't it cute? We had some sad news while we were gone - our dog, Willy, died. Check out the former post about him.
It was a great, relaxing weekend and we hope the Stewarts want to do it again next year!

Missing Willy

We lost our good buddy, Willy, on Saturday morning. We got him as a puppy about 16 years ago. He was a great dog and we sure will miss him. He went blind and deaf about 1 1/2 years ago but still loved to go for walks (and kill rats!). I walked him around the lake on Thurs. morning and then we did our house swap with the Stewart family so we weren't here when he died. Thanks Jen for dealing with the details. We miss him.
