Erin Paco Tommy at Toys’rUs – Mon. Aug 18, 2014

The boys planned a busy schedule for their last day here. They wanted to go to Costco because
they said that the nearest Costco to Traverse City was 2 hours away in Grand Rapids. They wanted
to eat lunch there. They ordered pizza, hot dog, and a churro to share. They didn’t find much of
interest in the toy section there, but did get lots of snacks.

So, the next stop was Toys’rUs which Paco wasn’t sure he had ever been to. Erin assured him
that he has been there before. I thought that Erin wanted to get them a small toy to play with
on the plane on the way home tomorrow. But, they chose big boxes, which she FedExed them.

When we got home, they were going to go swimming, but instead are playing with their iPads.
Tommy has a Whist game he is playing. He gets very excited when his Ace takes the opponent’s

Next stop: Chinese Buffet for dinner at their request. Tommy says he loves chicken chow mein.

We are happy – Sat. Aug. 16, 2014

I received this email this afternoon from Erin entitled, “We are happy”.

The text was this photo of Paco looking cool, poolside at Shannon’s.


Paco on Wild Stagecoach Ride – Fri. Aug. 15, 2014

Yesterday (Friday) Paco joined 3 of his Davis friends and their siblings at Funderland in Land Park
here in Sacramento. Paco’s sibling was supposed to go, too, but at the last minute Tommy
was whining and complaining that his legs ached, I guess from swimming the day before.

I left the group for a couple of hours, and when I went back, it was easy to find them.
I just looked for Paco’s orange shirt and yellow Traverse City All-Star hat.

Then later Clark and I took Erin and the boys to Shannon’s house for 2 nights. She lives
in Folsom in the hills beyond downtown Folsom. She has a newly remodeled house
with a beautiful pool. She was having a pool party this afternoon for Cindy, Anissa,
Vivian, and their families.



Erin and Tommy Swimming – Thurs. Aug. 14, 2014

This afternoon Brandon and Beck came over and we went for a swim at the Campus Commons
Clubhouse pool. Erin walked in the pool with her good left arm out pulling Tommy as he kicked.
He really doesn’t swim. Erin kept repeating how much she loves the water. It was actually our
first time over there this summer. We were all exhausted after 2 hours in the sun.

Clark is to the left, Brandon and Beck in the foreground, and Paco in orange in the background.
