A Great Visit with the California Cousins:

What a nice visit we had with Billy, Vicki and some of their family this weekend. They drove up from Bakersfield with two cars and 4 little ones to bring Grandma her birthday gifts and to say hello. Billy and Vicki are the mom and dad of Little Bill and Nikki. Bill is married to Trinity and their little boy is Jake. Nikki came with her three children, Kaden, Kylie and Kelsi.

On Friday evening, Darlene provided the salads and vegi's while Larry and Sammi brought over spaghetti. I made some garlic bread.

On Saturday, the same crowd returned, along with Jimmy, Sam, Ethan, Logen, Maykala, Shelly, Brian, Trevor, Christian and Isaiah. We ate Larry's BBQ ribs and the rest of the spaghetti. It was a lot of fun to get caught up and enjoy each others company. We are so glad that they were able to come and see all of us.

See you guys on Facebook!
(Speaking of Facebook, I posted at total of 72 pictures of the weekend on my profile page.)
