For our trip to the States this year we wanted to visit Denver. My daughter, Janie, recently moved there, and cousin June, Victor, and family live there. The last time we had visited Denver was about 10 years ago when Tanya and I stayed at June and Victor's for a week after my throat operation.
Since there is no direct flight from Taiwan to Denver, we had to make landfall on the West Coast, first. Since the kids (including this kid) had never been to Disneyland, we decided to spend a few days in LA and take in the show, before proceeding on to the Mile High City.
Janie proudly showed off the nice apartment she recently moved into. She has a job at the zoo - one of the nicest zoos I've been to - and spent a wonderful day taking us around.
Nick flew in for a couple of days, and though the time we spent together was too short, it was great to see him again.
It seems as if we are always on the road for Mandy's birthday. No problem. June and Victor ordered up an ice cream cake and we had a great time celebrating it at their house.

And so ends our trip. As wonderful as it was, we can't wait to see what next year brings. As always, if anyone has any family news and/or pictures they would like to put up, by all means email them to me.
