Last Thursday my Aunt Dee from Castro Valley, California, came to Vegas on her way to visit my Aunt Bea (Yes, Aunt Bea and Aunt Dee, my dad's sisters, the remaining two from eight kids), and we were thrilled that she stayed with us for a night. Some of my favorite times as child were spent on vacation at her home in the Bay area, so I was glad to return he hospitality. Her husband, my Uncle Cecil, passed away last year at age 87. After spending a fun evening together, we drove her to St. George on Friday. Aunt Bea has a beautiful condo on the bluff high above St. George Blvd. I didn't take a photo of the view straight on, but you can get an idea of her views from the photos wih the Red Rock mountains in the background. Connor, Chloe, and Caleb were satisfactory entertainment for all of us.

Here are some photos of our kids on Easter Sunday- Connor, 6; Chloe, 3; and Caleb, 2.

Last Friday night, Annette's grandfather, Melvin Morrow, passed away in Fort Worth, Texas. He was 92 years old. He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Estelle.

I made this video in tribute to my children's Pappaw. He was a great man, who loved the Lord. The clips used in this video were taken from Melvin's own home movies shot in the 1950's and 60's.

The song, "Last Mile to Jordan," was written by our dear friend Rebecca Peck, with vocals by former Gaither Vocal Band singer Terry Franklin.

Here are some photos of our California vacation.
Connor and I went to his very first Dodger game.

Connor and Dodger legend Fernando Valenzuela.

We stayed with ANnette's cousin Trana, her husband Chris, and their baby Joss. We had a wonderful time in their home in Sherman Oaks. Chloe was in love with Trana, Connor was in love with Joss, and Caleb didn't break anything.

Trana got us passes to Universal Studios Hollywood, where she works as a publicist. We had a great time!

We also went to the Santa Monica pier, the train in Los Angeles' Griffith Park, and I took Connor and Chloe to Bel Air Presbyterian Church Sunday. It was a terrific time in Southern California!
