We stopped in Dillon, Montana for lunch with Dave's cousin, Russ. We then went to the rest home to see his Uncle Loren and meet his aunt. Dave's uncle is his mother's brother and he is 91. When we got there, he knew who Dave was and when I went over, he took my hand and held it an squeezed it. That touched my heart!!!
After our visit, we went on a walking tour of University of Montana Western where Dave got his BA, etc. He was an assistant football coach there for one year. It is such a beautiful campus! I would love to have Cameron see it and Montana Tech.
It was so nice to get to our Butte home. The view is so pretty and it is just a nice and comfortable house!
All and all, it was a great road trip and I got to see so much of the country that I have never seen before.

We spent the night with Ted and Louisa on Wednesday night. It was so great to visit with them. We also got to see Kevin and his family and the grand kids. They fixed us a delicious dinner. We were able to get a lot of visiting in. Dave commented on how nice everything was and what a great guy Ted is. I agree as Ted is one of the finest men I know.
Thursday morning, Ted took us on a tour of Sacramento. He knows so much of the history and little known facts about buildings, etc. It was great.
We then went to stay with Jan and Tim. In addition, Jean came up from San Jose to meet Dave. We had another wonderful visit and a great dinner. It was so nice for Dave to meet the cousins. He has a lot of family so he "gets it" which is really nice! For some reason, I didn't take any pictures.
Friday we picked up our cousin, Mike, from the airport and drove to Turlock for the celebration of 50 years of marriage for Marion and Ron--more cousins. It was a small celebration with just the "sisters" invited. I am always so thrilled to be included as a "sister" as my Phoenix cousins are like my sisters.
We had a nice dinner with just our generation at an Italian restaurant in Turlock Friday night.
Saturday we moved to Modesto. Got there a bit early and couldn't check into the hotel so we went bowling!! I haven't bowled in years and it was fun!!!
Saturday evening all of the family went to 5:00 Mass and then to a restaurant with a special room just for us. It was so great to be with all of the family and we had an absolutely wonderful time celebrating Marion and Ron.
We drove back to Sacramento Sunday afternoon and checked into our hotel by the airport. We met one of Dave's cousins for a late lunch. Dustin is a delightful young man who works in the area as in special education administration.
It was such a nice trip. Came home to two puggies who were so glad to see us. Got laundry done. I had a board meeting on Tuesday.
We left for Butte Weds. and had to get everything packed for that trip. I will write about that soon.

We came back and opened the bottle of champagne and sat outside for a long time listening to music and watching the stars and just talking. It couldn't have been any nicer or more romantic.
This morning I am sitting here writing on my blog and watching Dave fix my coffee and breakfast. This is so hard for me to get used to as I have never had anyone treat me like this ever. I love this man!
This evening we are headed for Douglas for a reception down there for the many wonderful people I value. I want them to meet Dave.
