Prescott, Arizona - April 28 - May 24, 2017

We volunteered our time here at Prescott Pines Christian Camp during the month of May.  In exchange, we were provided a campsite with full hookups and most meals were also provided.  They are dedicated to providing a Church Camp experience for kids of all ages.  Mom & Dad Robinson visited us while we were here.  Also, we met up with Ken and Ruth as they were camping here in Prescott.  We were planning on staying another month, but Linda's Mom had double bypass heart surgery, and we thought it would be best if we could be nearby to be with her.

We  brought our kayaks to Lynx Lake, but after hiking around the lake, we were too tired to launch the kayaks...maybe another day.

After hiking, Keith introduced us to Geochaching.  We actually found one!  We might try to find more in the future!

Re-plastering the swimming pool.  This was not such a fun job, but everyone is happy that it's finally finished...

Our campsite was great.  We had views of all the Ponderosa Pines, squirrels, hummingbirds, deer and coyotes.

Las Vegas - March 30 - April 28, 2017

We came back to Vegas area to see family and friends...and most of all to meet our new grandson - William Dean!!  Jessica and Erik had their second boy.  He was born on April 10th...and he's perfect!

Waiting patiently for little William to arrive!

Myles can't wait to meet his new brother.  He's hoping that William will also like Star Wars and other Superheros -LOL

Here he is!  Welcome to the world, William Dean

Meemaw is so happy and looking forward to spoiling William.

We got to see Myles play T-Ball.  He really likes it...and is getting pretty good at hitting, catching and throwing.

Playing First-Base was fun for him.

Cindy, Linda, Janelle, Chelsea and Jessica relaxing at Tim and Cindy's house while Tim cooked up a big pot of delicious Gumbo!  

Yikes!...He's so tiny!!!

Kayak ride up the Colorado River from Willow Beach to Emerald Cave

Brian and I helped Dad with building his new shed.  The weather was perfect...and the shed turned out great! 

We both rode our bikes from the Boulder City to Brian's house in Henderson.  It was a great ride there...coming back to Boulder City...not so great - It was mostly uphill - but it was great exercise.
