Wow, what a year and did it go by quickly.

We had many church activities this year including a cruse to the Mexican Riviera with fifty of our members. We took shore excursions at Colima, Manzinillo, Acapulco, Zihuatanejo, and Ixtapa.

Pat has been very busy learning Swedish.   Sandy gave up on it -- too difficult to pronounce.   We have been enjoying the Oasis Classes for seniors.  We've taken everything from Art to Yoga and lots in between.

Sandy is still hooked on Harry Potter & has 7 button frames depicting the story from each of the books.

In July, Sandy hit a milestone with her 70th birthday.  We took a trip to Sweden.  Pat's cousin, Ingalill, planned a wonderful vacation for us.  We feasted with most of the relatives and visited lovely gardens, glass factories, and many beautiful & interesting historical sites.
