More Baby and Travel Pictures

On Friday, Deanne was not feeling well, so we left her and the baby alone, and took Aubrey out to lunch at the local “Purple Cow” hamburger joint.  Aubrey and Patsy shared a strawberry milkshake with their hamburger.  It was the best hamburger that I have had in a while.  Here is a couple of pictures of Aubrey with her burger and milkshake……

We’re Grandparents Again!!

On March 22, I got a call in my office at work from our daughter, Deanne, that she had delivered a healthy 6lb 10oz baby girl earlier in the morning in Little Rock, Ar.  The call was even more happy because the pregnancy had been a difficult one, with her placenta having been dropped.

Yesterday, Patsy and I left Victoria with our other granddaughter, Aubrey to travel to Little Rock to meet Rachel!  Our grandson is in public school kindergarten, and he could not go with us.  This is Aubrey’s road trip since Matthew had one in December 2009.

Here is one of the early pictures of Rachael on the way home from the hospital…..


Here are some more pictures with Grammy, Poppaw, and cousin Aubrey today……

I am posting this on Friday night because I have been having problems with the power supply on my PC.  Hopefully, I will be able to post again before we leave on Saturday night.  I have to get back to work. 

I have to say, it has been great being on the road in the Bus again.  I am considering being AWOL from work!!!

More later.
