We finally made it back to Dallas

We had intended to go visit our new grand baby, Eleanor Katie, a little sooner, but we wanted to make sure that neither of us were sick.

We didn’t take the interstate for the trip from the Corpus Christi Area to Dallas.  Instead, we decided to drive Highway US 77 north as far as Waco.  The ride was great.  We enjoyed seeing all of the greenery.  We haven’t seen much rain since September, but north of here they have been swamped.

Our first opportunity to see Katie was at her big sister’s (Gracie) soccer game.  More interested in milk than the game, Katie sat in her stroller.

Daddy Justin  took a turn at burping detail.

Cousin Maddi strolled over to see if she could help.

On the game front, Gracie, #3, moves into position to score a goal.

This made a two game scoring streak for Gracie.

Cousin Ayden chats with Gracie during intermission.

We had a wonderful couple of days visiting the kids and grand kids.  One day we did burgers on the grill, in the rain, and the next day we did some damage to some Williams fried chicken.

Tinka grabbed the opportunity to visit with Katie during one of her waking periods.

Rick was still able to recognize the facial expressions that preclude a major diaper change, and his instincts proved to be accurate.

We elected to take the long route home through the Bolivar Peninsula  and Galveston, both ravaged by Hurricane Ike last year.  We’ll report on each of those areas in the next day or two.

    What an alert looking cutie. Sounds like a good time–especially Rick avoiding diaper changes…
