Texas Trip - Part 2

Then we went to Houston/Kemah to visit Dad, Dottie and some old friends. We got to meet Lance's new baby the day after she arrived. Kemah is close to Galveston and got hit hard by Hurricane Ike. Dad and Dottie just had a little roof damage, but the rest of the neighborhood is still recovering.

Shaban and I went to Texas to visit my family. First we went to Corpus to see Mom, Ralph and Aunt Nancy. It was sunny and one day got up to 80 degrees! A nice break from the snow and cold of Oregon...
