Sumpter's were in the California area recently so they made a trip to San Jose. While Steve was doing a "rotation" in Reno on Sports Medicine for two weeks, how could they not come another 4 hours to see us. They actually came the weekend just before mom and I scheduled to go on our Canadian Rockies trip we had planned earlier this year (more on that later). Miranda is growing so much (9 months old now) and a very happy baby. Whenever someone makes a noise like a panting dog, she does a good imitation. Watch the video to see a sample. More to come in the next blog.
