Our Granddaughter Shala, Grandson-in-law Ryan and Pat and Michelle

As I mentioned in last Sundays Blog, we were headed over to Lake Havasu City, AZ. to visit son Patrick, DIL Michelle and the Grandkids who were visiting from Lincoln, Nebraska. We departed North Ranch shortly after 7am and had an enjoyable trip over to Hope, Bouse, Parker and on into Lake Havasu where we pulled up to Patrick and Michelle’s house at 09:45.

This is Granddaughter Shala and her husband Ryan, who have both recently graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Then, just a few weeks ago, Shala announced to us that she was going to have TWINS……  Can you tell its Twins?

Aww, Yep, it's twins!!  She says "Definitely!!!,  It's TWINS!!!"  She still has about 3 months to go…..

It wasn’t long until we all retired to the back yard by the pool. This is the view from Pat and Michelle’s patio/pool area. It's neat they have this undeveloped area owned by the city and designed as a buffer where it is assured no houses will ever be built. It slopes down right into the LAKE, which you can easily see.

In the morning it was still a little cool so everyone wanted to soak up the warm sunshine..

It didn’t take the sun long and about noon the thermometer slid right on by 80*!!

My son Pat and I had some enjoyable “laid back” time together…..

Shala and her Mom enjoy the sun and some quality mother, daughter time together..

Ms. Pat was the first to enjoy the water and get her feet wet.  The water was cool, so that’s as far as he got…..

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed seeing all the kids so very much. But as always, the time flew by and way too soon it was time to head on back to the “RANCH”.

The next morning we had to be in Phoenix at 8:30 am for a Doctor appointment.  We made it and fortunately we didn’t do any shopping and were back home by early afternoon. Neither of us travel and “run around” like we used to and we were “worn out”!

Tuesday was a “SHOOT” day so we spent the afternoon at the Shooting Range. It was warm but windy and that took its toll on us. We were glad to get home from that. Now Ms. Pat is heading for Line Dancing and I’m getting ready to do some reloading!!

Tonight we'll enjoy some buffalo burgers and a few other treats with the "Bayfield Bunch".   We're looking forward to spending some quality time with Al and Kelly before they "up and disappear".

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

No matter how busy we are, we must take the time to Thank our Father in Heaven for all His many blessings that make this wonderful life so great. Praise the Lord!!

Thanks for taking time from your busy day to stop by and visit. Hope you stop by again soon!
