2013 May

May 1-15

May was a pretty mellow month.  While finishing up our time in Provo, Utah with Dave’s parents he worked several days a week doing day labor as he had done in Colorado.  Every day that he worked Roberta spent a leisurely morning in the RV at the beautiful Lakeside RV Park in Provo, then hopped on her bike for the 6-mile ride to the McRaes, where she watched TV, played on the computer, read and napped until Dave got off work and came to get her…what a life!  We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Mom & Dad McRae!!

On May 16th we flew back to Boulder to attend the high school graduation of Roberta’s niece, Sophie, who (of course!) graduated with honors! She will be going all the way to DENVER to attend college in the fall.

Shortly after flying back to Provo we headed the RV south to Mesa, Arizona to meet our newest grandchild who was just about one week old by then.  Our trip from Utah to Arizona took us through Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada. We briefly stopped at some of the touristy places along the way, like the old Railroad Pass Casino Museum.
