Day 14: Our Day just got Brighter

BradyAugust 13: Welcome Brady Gene Ferri!

Today the sun shined and started drying things out, but that’s not why our day got BRIGHTER. Our brighter day actually started the night before with a text from our son saying they we’re heading to the hospital.  Then, at 3:05 AM, Saturday, August 13, 2016, Brady Gene Ferri entered this world at a whopping 9lbs. 11 oz., 22” long and lots of dark hair.

As our daughter-in-law, Jess, a gifted writer, put her thoughts into these words:

“God blesses us with Brady “Bo” Gene Ferri at 3:05 this morning He is 100% solid beefcake – 9 lbs. 11 oz. and 22” long.  Yup, you read that right!

Brady means “spirited,” and he is named after some of the most spirited angels we know looking down on him.  The Gene is shared with our Manda Jean and my Grandpa Eugene, and Brady was Manda’s all- time favorite football player.

This kid has some pretty big shoes to fill.  Luckily, he’s a giant.”

We know he will fill those shoes because he has two loving and caring parents. Congratulations to Thomas, Jess and big brothers Tyson and Desmond.  Mom and baby are doing fantastic.

Boys

This is why our day got BRIGHTER.  We are proud grandparents to the most amazing grandsons…did I mention Brady makes it #4?

Day 7: Dog Days of Summer

August 6: Angus meets Crawdad Charlie

Camping in the Gulf area during the summer isn’t as cool as it seems. In fact, it can get mighty hot. I start sweating about 8 in the morning and don’t stop until about 8 at night.

Fortunately, our little home has air conditioning. The dogs have become very fond of that. We couldn’t get them into the camper the first day and now they don’t want to come out.

The Seabee base we’re staying at has two campgrounds and they’re both nice. One is near the the main gate and the other is back in the woods. Had we known, we would have gone to the back. There’s a lake and a big area for the dogs to run around (well, one runs and the other hobbles). It’s good information for the next time we’re passing through.

This completes our first week out on the road. It’s all going well so far, and Daria still likes me (I think!).  I love you!
