In addition to these trips, we went to San Antonio to see Audrey, Dan and Tess; and we went to New Orleans to see Valerie, Mike, Alex and Chloe (before they moved back to Houston). In August Kathy drove across the country with Holly on her move to San Francisco. In December we went back to California for a pre-Christmas visit with Kathy's family.

We had Thanksgiving at Valerie and Mike's house with all of the children and grandchildren.

Audrey, Dan and Tess were at our house for Christmas eve. Then they flew to Ohio. We had Christmas dinner at Valerie and Mike's house with Chloe, Alex and Charles.

Finally, we took a New Year's cruise that left Galveston on December 30. The pictures from that trip are in the Journal for 2007.
