Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley Weir went to Galveston last Thursday and stayed in “an almost beachside” house on Crystal Beach, with Malorie Padrones and her family and another couple. Yvonne says, “Besides enjoying the beach, the three of us went out on the bay fishing and went to Moody Aquarium. Wes loved the penguins and the ferry.”
Dustin, Wesley, and Yvonne Weir and Maria (Dustin & Natalie’s niece) drove to South Dakota to visit Yvonne’s home place. They left on June 12th and returned on June 22nd. They enjoyed being at the Hall ranch, as well as the cabin at Shadehill Lake. On the way home they visited Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse statue, and enjoyed seeing the landscapes of the Badlands.
Our daughter, Tiffany Vaughn, and grandchildren, Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin, and I took a mini vacation last weekend and picked up Tiffany’s granddaughter, Dixie, in Kountze, on Friday afternoon. We drove back to Piney Shores Resort on Lake Conroe and spent the evening swimming and enjoying the beautiful sunset. We stayed up late playing games in the lodge, and then slept late on Saturday. We drove to Jacksonville and went to the Cherokee Trace Drive-Thru Safari, where we all enjoyed seeing the animals up close and getting to feed them. We stopped in Tyler for a delicious meal at the Texas Roadhouse on the way home. Dixie is spending a few days with Landon, Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden.
