What a great 3 days

Sometimes in your life you meet people that you just click with.  Back in time to 1990, I had just graduated from nursing school and was in the new nurse class at Valley Children's Hospital.  I met a traveling nurse named Mary, who by way of Arizona was in CA so her hubby could go to enology school.  They had one little girl who was 1.  Mary is from Missouri.  We just seemed to click and I learned so much from her about nursing neonatal babies.  My husband and I having 3 sons, love children and offered to babysit for them which we did and also when she had another little girl a year or so later.  In any case Mary moved back to Mo, had 2 more kids and became nurse extraordinaire.  We have been in touch over the yrs, not as much as we should, but as much as we could with busy lives.  It was so exciting when Mary came out to CA last weekend for her dtr's soccer games.  We had almost 2 whole days to catch up and we had such a great time, lots of talk, laughing, good meals, cocktails and wine (oh and soccer too) It was just like old times.  Mary has gone so far in her career, she is now Executive  Director of Nurses at her hospital and I am so proud of her.  Her dtr is a real cutie too, like a little bird, but a heck of a soccer player.  Congraduations Mary you did a great job!! Heres to being more in touch in the future.  Love you!!!

July Vacation

These photos are from our July vacation camping at the Lake.  Someone gave us trout and I cleaned and gutted them.  Several pics of Hannah camping and then of our sailboat The Hannah Lee.  We had a great time in spite of several problems with the boat motor.  As usual the lake is beautiful and we are enjoying it immensely.  Hannah loves camping, sailing and smores!!
