Happy birthday Ivy!

Location, Houston, TX

Happy Birthday Ivy!

Today is the big 9th birthday for our granddaughter. We were here for her birth 9 years ago. Hard to believe that much time has passed. More on the birthday celebration later.

We arrived in Huston Monday morning after an easy drive from College Station. It did rain most of the way but mostly sprinkles. We wanted to get checked into Traders Village before the big Sunday swap meet crowds arrived. Fortunately, we did arrive early as the crowds later in the day were the largest I have seen.

The change in temperatures was much appreciated after the cold up north. It has been cloudy and over cast most of the time with very brief sunshine in the afternoon. Today however, we are back to the old ways with rain and possible snow showers later today. Hopefully, it will all stay to the north of us.

We plan to be here for three weeks before going south for a week of camping around Rockport and then heading west for home.
