Arrival of our second granddaughter Paloma Grace

What a joy it is to welcome a new granddaughter into the family. Paloma Grace was born on Sunday September 4th. She arrived a week early so grandma Sharon didn't arrive to help out until the 12th. Sharon was able to spend two weeks in Virginia helping out and even got to celebrate her birthday more than once.

Celebrating our 35th Anniversary in Mallorca, Spain

I surprised Sharon with a trip to Mallorca for our 35th Anniversary. Was a very enjoyable time and it seemed like we were back in Venezuela. The island was a lot bigger than what we had imagined. Thanks to our friends Andrew and Vivienne who let us stay in their home while they were out of town and offered the use of their car!
35 of the best years ever!
