Saying Goodbye

Tommy’s mom passed away on Monday, April 15. At 97, she’d lived a long, full life.

It took us a little time to get the grandkids all together for a funeral. On April 25, the funeral for Doris was held at Roswell Methodist Church. Amanda, Evan, Miss B, Hall, Molly and Abigail were all in attendance. We took the opportunity to take some family photos.

2019 Moab Trip – Day 9

Saturday, March 23

We left the hotel at 9:15. It was 43 degrees and misting. We drove to Damar to take pictures of St. Joseph Catholic Church. We had been there before, but this time we were going inside. Before we got to Damar we saw this church.

Sacred Heart Parish
Park, KS
St. Joseph Catholic Church Damar, KS One of my favorite churches we’ve seen on our trips.

After spending some time taking pictures and marveling at the beauty both inside ¬†and outside of this church, we got back on the road and headed east. We got to Warrenton, MO, filled up the truck and got a room at the Holiday Inn Express. Dinner was from Imo’s Pizza.

Total miles driven – 3410

2019 Moab Trip – Day 6

Wednesday, March 20

When we were still at home planning our trip I wanted to do something we had not yet done. A friend had taken one of the jet boat tours when they were in Moab and it looked like fun. So I scheduled us for a Moab Jet Scenic tour. It was a 3 hour trip on the Colorado River.

Since our boat tour wasn’t until the afternoon, we went climbing. Well, the kids went climbing as Tommy and I watched.

We were all supposed to go on the boat tour but Miss B wasn’t feeling well so we left her and Amanda at the condo.

According to our guide, the river was low so we weren’t able to see/do some things that we might have. But it was enjoyable to see the scenery from the river.
