Went to Pinecrest Lake and decided to take the job. Here is where we park and what our view is. Isn't the lake beautiful? I don't think we will get tired of looking at it all summer, do you? It is located east of Sonora and north of Yosemite. We will be camp host there till Labor Day.

We are back in Morgan Hill Thousand Trails. We had two phone interviews. Both positive now it is just a waiting game. If we don't get a job we will be traveling up the coast. We will be attending the FMCA rally in Albany, OR. Then up to Washington and back down the coast. But as usual, the wind may choose to blow the other way.

Easter was wonderful. We had a picnic and deepfryed a turkey. Had lots of salads and some stuffed bell pepers. Couldn't find the camera so not pictures. Oh well next time.

Here we are at Turtle Beach TTN again and we love it. For three days we had exceptional weather and now rain for the next three days. Great for Easter tho. We are having the family over to celibrate. No kids but I think I have an easter egg hunt. I will never grow up if I can help it.

Today was Richard's 32 birthday. Tomorrow is Lois' ? birthday. We went to Fernando's which had nothing Richard wanted but he had a steak which was aweful. The rest was O.K. Did I mention that Lois picked this year and Richard hates Mexican food. Next year he says he wants Philipino food for the pay back. He did't tell us that he went out and pigged out on pizza for lunch so wasn't very hungry anyway. Some times you can't win.

This is a service project for the UCSF Children's Hospital. This little hospital gown goes on a doll which we also make. The kids who have operations etc. get one and the doctors have a set with doctors, nurces, O2 masks, IVs and stuff to help explain what will happen them while they are in the hospital. The OT department really appreciates getting these dolls and some of the kids even bring them back when they have repeat visits. Origionally they only had their set of dolls and would use them to show what they were going to go through, but this way the kids design the face on their own doll and get to keep it.

My Stake has been making these for three years and they make about 250 a year of this size and about the same amount in a smaller size. I enjoy doing them but as you can see there are a lot to finish this year because we did not have as many volunteers at the project day and I said I would bring them home and finish these. About two more days an we are done.
