The home of Wanda and Alfred Coats and Mildred Ely was the setting for a family birthday lunch Sunday for family members Noah Coldiron, Chelsi Cold- iron, Natalie Rasco, Lauren and Blaine Ward, Margie Alexander and Caitlin Coats.

Joining them for the Mexican food lunch were Ray and Paula Coats, Caitlin, Rebecca and friend Cory, Bryce and Natalie Rasco and her parents from Kansas, Lori Coats, Sherri and James Rasco, Phillip Rasco, Margie Alexander, Lauren and Blaine Ward and Grant.

Jerry and Renee’ Vinton, Seth, Calla and Isaac recently spent a day at Barton Springs in Austin. That was the first time I had thought about Barton Springs in years. We went there when I was in school and after having children, Wanda Coats and I took our children there for a day in the summers.

That has been a number of years back. Sherri Coats Rasco says she can remember when we took them, but I haven’t thought to ask my older ones. Seth Vinton celebrated his 12th birthday on Friday with a pizza and swim party at the home of he and his family. He and the boy classmates he invited, plus his dad, had a sleep over.

Saturday morning, we attended the St. Joseph High School football scrimmage in Anderson. Grandson Connelly Cooper is a member of team. This is something new for him. He is a sophomore this year and its his first ever school year to play football.

On Saturday evening, a number of Connelly’s family members joined he and his family, Kelly and Chris Cooper and Cameron, at Kyle Field to set up seats for the Aggies football season. This helps fulfill community service activities that Connelly and his parents are required to have.

I don’t know if there was anyone there older than Wayne and I, it was an experience.
