Jason, Nikki, Alea, Kylie, and Patrick Gurley spent a magical spring break in Grand Lake, Colo. They enjoyed the snow, went to ski school, built a snowman and a fox came along and ate the eyes and buttons that were made of Oreo cookies, went swimming in Glenwood hot springs, enjoyed snowmobiling in the Rocky Mountains, visited Vail and Lionshead, ate at Juicy Lucy’s Steakhouse and Buffalo Restaurant and much more during their exciting week. From Gambia, Colo., they rode an Amtrak train to Glenwood Springs and they said it was a beautiful trip. Everything looked like a post card out there. They also enjoyed visiting with Rodney and Meredith Grabow during their wonderful week.

Visitors of Jean Gurley during spring break were her grandchildren, Madisyn and Landon Cobbs of Oxford. They enjoyed fishing as well as other activities.
Last weekend, Roxanne Rowland and children, Christopher, Jayne and Brendan joined her father, Mark Savage of Red Banks, on a trip to Ohio to visit relatives. They attended a circus in Cincinnati, the American Girl Store in Columbus and also went to Lynchburg.
