Fires Info; Dianne’s Parents Visit…
We first want to say that we are safe and there are no fires near us. However, we are most concerned about the fires near South Fork and Creede, Colorado. A number of friends have homes/cabins/ranches in the area… all livestock and people are evacuated. The fire crews must be doing a remarkable job, as no structures have been lost. Some of our favorite areas have been severely damaged, and will never be the same. We hope everyone involved stays safe!
Those of you who know my parents, Bev and Mac, and our children, may enjoy the following. They were here at a nearby cabin for four days. We had good visits as they ran back and forth between our son Kevin’s home and our campground site. On their travels, in addition to a variety of family and friends, they stopped to see each of our five children and enjoyed visits with them, their spouses, and our seven grandchildren. In the first two photos are Bev & Mac with grandchildren Trevor, Sara & Teagan. And a photo of our son Brian, his wife, Krista, and the children. So far away… we miss them!
Another stop was dinner with son, Loren, and our daughter, Kayla and her husband, Weston. We were fortunate to see them all this spring, and will be getting together with them again in July!
In Alamosa, they got together with youngest son, Ryan, and met his wife, Kate, and our two youngest grandchildren, Obie and Lucy. We, too, enjoyed time with Ryan, Kate and the kids in May… yippee… more time together in July!
This final stop here in Bayfield, CO yielded many gatherings. A great fish dinner at Kevin and Kirsten’s one evening, and beautiful breakfast the next day, some meals at our campsite and lunch at a little restaurant overlooking the lake. Too many photos to post, but here are a few… everyone enjoyed the time together!

So, lots of family time! Tom and I are enjoying frequent visits with Kevin, Kirsten, Logan and Owen while spending this time in “their neighborhood.”
Thanks for letting us share… Hugs, D & T
