The Weirs have had a busy week. Last Friday, Robert and Yvonne went to Canton. Wesley bowled with My Heroes on Saturday, and then they all went to Destri Weir’s “40 and Fabulous” birthday party. Yvonne reported that Dacy [(Weir) Campbell] had “decorated Destri’s house up really cute.” A good group of family and friends gathered to help her celebrate. On Monday. Wesley played Bright Star baseball. Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley drove to Garland on Tuesday evening to watch Dustin Weir’s middle school football teams play. Yvonne comments, “Wesley loved the band, the cheerleaders, and the game!”
Chip and I have enjoyed the past week at Lake Tahoe, on the border of Nevada and California. The lake surrounded by the mountains was gorgeous. We enjoyed a sightseeing cruise on the lake, driving on the mountain roads and seeing the fall foliage and ski slopes (which will be opening for the winter season in a few weeks), and relaxing at the resort. It snowed on Sunday afternoon and night, which made for a beautiful sight. On our last day, we took a tour of the Thunderbird Lodge Historic Estate, known as Tahoe’s “Castle-in-the-Sky.” That afternoon, we drove to the “wild west” town of Virginia City, Nevada.
