Georgia - trip

My Dad gave me some of his frequent flyer miles for United Airlines. I used them to fly to Georgia to visit my adopted Sister Darlene and her hubby Dave. I have not flown in an airplane since I was 21 so it was VERY exciting. I had a layover in Chicago, where the president is from and I had never been there. It was such an awesome adventure to take by myself. I enjoyed every minute of it even the rushed ones such as running thru O'Hare to catch my next my plane. I was on an adventure. Georgie is a gorgeous state with lots of hills and tall trees. I could actually feel Moore oxygen in the air. Darlene's house was amazing and I so enjoyed being a guest in her home. Dave taught me how to do my taxes myself and keep better books for our business. We also had play time when we went out on the boat and I got up on water skies. I have not got up on skies in about 15 years or so. It was just as I remember, totally awesome as if I was walking on water. I am very thankful for this wonderful trip! Thanks Dad, you are the BEST Daddy ever!!

Family Vacation

We went on vacation to South Padre Island, Texas. It was a 9 hour drive one way but so worth it. The beach was beautiful and majestic. We took all 4 kids and our grandbaby, which was a little tight but we managed. We went on a 3 hour dolphin cruise complete with fireworks. Then we rode horses on the beach and had a wonderful time. Only 1 kid got burned, our 16 year old she refused sunscreen cuz she wanted to tan. It was a great time for all of us and we are glad to be back home. Thank you God for keeping us safe on our journey.
