Back to the Future

It has been awhile since I've written a blog post and a number of you have asked me if everything is OK. In fact all is extremely well. Since we returned from Vilcabamba the focus of our family has been on a very special event that occurred this Wednesday.

Please allow me to introduce Addison Claire Staton, our first grandchild.

This 8 pounds and 20 inches of pure sweetness was born June 15 at 5:08 AM, missing Grammy Cynthia's birthday on the 14th by just that much. There are no words to express our joy and excitement of this blessed event.

We can't wait to head for the US this Wednesday to hug our son and daughter-in-law, meet the newest member of TeamStaton and begin our roles as doting grandparents. Our travel plans also include a fun visit with our daughter and her hubby, as well as a long-anticipated trip to Montana to celebrate our 40th anniversary.

Wow, there's a whole lotta love in the Staton family these days. What a magnificent life we have!

Congrats on granddaughter. Have been following your blog for sometime. One of the best. Where abouts in Montana ? We live in northwest Montana in Troy near Libby. We lived in Hawaii for many years and now are looking at coast of Ecuador.

Thanks so much. We're going to the Triple Creek Ranch SW of Missoula, then heading over to Yellowstone.
