Christmas was held at the new house that was acquired this year, next door to the original ranch. It centered around Zakkary, who will be three years old on January 15th. We had a great time and a great dinner, including prime rib, turkey, and ham.
Now it's 2014 and it is back on the road, heading west this year, starting with 75 days in the Mesa/ Phoenix area. This year will include vacations to Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Alaska without the RV. But with the RV we will visit all of the National Parks in Utah, one stop in Colorado, on our way to three western towns in Wyoming (Laramie, Cheyenne, and Sheridan) and a few stops in Montana. We will spend more time in Washington state, and head south to Palm Springs to visit the newlyweds, John & Gerry (Debbie's cousin.) We got to spend time with them in 2011-2012 and can't wait to see them again. Then back to Mesa for a stop at the VA in Phoenix and we head back slowly to Florida for the winter.
