Last Friday Brooke turned 20 on the 20th. We had a small family celebration at Olive Garden. (her favorite) Every year I marvel at how fast the time goes and how quickly the grand-kids have been growing up. As a Grandmother I have to say there is nothing any better than to be a part of that if one gets that opportunity. That has been a blessing for me and I am so thankful.

Bob and I have a friend from Chicago who has been working in Norman OK. Bob was on the phone with Joe yesterday and we asked him if he would like us to meet him for dinner. The drive from here is nearly 3 hours so we got a room at the hotel and stayed the night. It was really good to see and visit with Joe. It was also really nice for us to get out. On our way home we were redirected from highway 35 to another highway for a while because of construction and high traffic back ups. The picture below is Turner Falls. We would have never have seen that is we were not redirected to a different route. What a blessing for us! We got a chance to stop and smell the roses.

Yesterday was our Grand-son Austin's birthday. He turned 17. It seems like yesterday when they moved to Texas. Our daughter-in-law flew to Chicago to get Austin and Brooke and the kids stayed with us over the weekend while Joy and Rob moved here. I mentioned to Joy that Austin crawls like an army soldier. (using only his arms and elbows) Joy said "What?" He has never crawled before. He is a tall, handsome and sweet young man now. We love him very much.

A few days after I returned home from Indiana and Chicago Bob and I took a short trip to Galveston. The purpose was to get away from therapy, doctors, working in the gym and the same oh same oh to spend some focused time together. It was really nice. We both relaxed a lot. Bob got into the pool for the first time since the stroke. He did very well but had to hold on the the edge of the pool. Since then he got into the pool at the rec center. Bob said he used muscles he hasn't used for a long time. While in Galveston we had an early dinner at Gaido's Restaurant for sea food. The restaurant opened in 1911. Our waiter had been there for 42 years and said he loves his job. The food is awesome. It is a must visit should you go to Galveston.
