Happy New Year and we are ready for 2009!

We left Midway for Dallas Dec 22 to visit with the grand kids for Christmas. We had a wonderful few days. This is a photo of us decorating Christmas cookies.

Then we left, heading towards California. Our first night was in Pecos, TX and then our next night was Deming NM. When we woke up, it was 12 degrees!!! This is the frost on the INSIDE of our window when I raised up the curtains!

Then, we made it to Quartzsite, AZ and spent a few hours visiting the Chamber of Commerce and a few stores to get ready for our big rally on Jan 13.

We are now in Palm Desert, CA until Jan 11, when we will head back to Quartzsite, AZ.

Santa Fe and then onto Texas

After Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, we spent a few days in Santa Fe and then drove on to Texas. We stopped in Dallas for a few days to visit with the grandkids and it was great seeing them.

We are now in Midway at Farris Ranch and are enjoying catching up on chores and relaxing and planning next year!

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

These were many 'special shapes' balloons.

These two bees would lift off, with their hands connected and then they would separate.

Canyonlands National Park

We drove through Canyonlands National Parks today. It was a bit hazy and hard to get good photos, but it was really a neat place.

Then, we took a jeep trail back to town. Glenda didn't enjoy it as much as Gerald did.

Salt Lake City and Moab, Utah

We spent two nights in Salt Lake City and were able to spend all day at Temple Square. It was really interesting and we were lucky to get there in time for the Pipe Organ rehearsal at the Tabernacle. Glenda spent some time in the Family History Library on the genealogy computers.

Then, we drove down to Moab and arrived last evening. Today we plan to visit Arches National Park.

It was truly a beautiful area.

We've had a great time in Oregon

We spent a few days in Seaside and then moved down the beach to Pacific City for a few days before heading to Salem to the Monaco combined rally (Beaver, Monaco, Holiday Rambler & Safari).

We have had a great time at the rally and are heading out tomorrow to go to the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque and then onto Texas.

While in Salem, we went to the Homes for Hounds annual picnic and got to see a lot of greyhounds and had a great time.

This was the group.

This is Marquis' half sister. Can you see the resemblance?

Chehalis, WA

We are now at TT Chehalis, near Chehlalis, WA. It is a huge park and is very hilly - great for walking. It has lots of trees, but we got a full hookup site with a break in the trees for our Datastorm.

We'll be heading to Seaside, OR on Friday.

Ocean City, WA

We are now at TT Oceana, near Aberdeen, WA. It has rained some every day, but we have been able to walk on the beach a few times. Marquis loves running in the sand and makes big circles around us.

We will be here till Labor day.

TT La Conner is beautiful!

La Conner, WA
We really like TT La Conner. It is a great park; there are lots of trees, but several sites that allow a satellite signal. The blackberries are ripening and walking in the park was great.

These are the berries that were growing in our site.

We are having blackberry cobbler and blackberry pancakes!

Now near Mt Vernon, WA

We also visited TT Mt Vernon, but it had too many trees for a satellite signal, so we moved to TT Grandy Creek.

This was TT Mt Vernon. A datastormer nightmare!!

At TT Grandy Creek, we can get internet, but not TV.

We drove through North Cascades National Park one day and really enjoyed the scenery.

We are just hanging out and enjoying the area. Will be going to TT La Conner next week.
