More Cambell Grace

Storey, Cambell, and Graham went home Friday morning. Everything was ready for them, and they have begun their new lives together as a family!

Here are some additional pictures from Day 1 and 2. You can see the nursery if you care for such things. (Remember, they had 4 weeks of works still to do, and this is what friends and family got done in 24 hours. Like a barn-raising in days gone by...)

More later...

This is Cambell's proud aunt, Summer!

We Are Grandparents!

Gambell Grace Cook was born to Storey and Graham on Wednesday, May 7, at 10:51 a.m. She was 6 lbs. 15 oz. and 20.5 inches long. She was about 4 weeks earlier, but she and Mom are doing great. Dad is doing great, too.

And here's Lollie, the proud Grandmother...yes, she wants to be Lollie and me Pop...whatever. It could be worse, I guess. I'll answer to whatever Cambell calls me.

Here's a photo of the gang at "tent city" at the Texas Motor Speedway where we spent the night before Day 2 of the ride. There were two others who spent the night in nearby hotels and four others who rode Day 1 and had to got to other commitments.

Part of the friendships of the evening was giving two of the riders gift certificates for new bikes. Both started riding this year and either trained on a mountain bike or a borrowed bike. They both showed they really loved the sport, so, one of the team stepped up and led out in raising the funds for the bikes. It was one of the many stories that rode in the peloton over the two-day ride.

The greatest feeling for many was crossing the finish line for the first time--it was not about the 160+ miles they rode but the realization they really did it for those who could not…
