Back from a Spring Break

Hi to all my faithful readers-
I am back after a 10 day trip with my mom and Carley to Texas. We had a nice time and really enjoyed the warmer weather. Carley and her High School Band competed in a Music Festival in Dallas-we enjoyed hearing them perform-they did Awesome!!! The band came home with over 10 trophies. We experienced Dallas (JFK Memorial, Dealy Plaza, Speed Zone, the Galleria and getting lost even with a navigation system). We headed down to Galveston Island for a few days as the the rest of the band headed back home. We did have a flat tire on the way to Galveston-but we were helped out by a young lady who had it changed in less than 30 minutes and wouldn't even accept any money for saving us-just wanted us to pay it forward at some point. We were so impresssed with the kindness of so many during our trip-thank you Nadia! We stayed in condo owned by Wounded Warriors right across from the Seawall.So grateful to that amazing organization. We saved so much $ by not having to pay for lodging. They offer this to wounded warriors and their families. A big Thanks to Col. John Folsom and his staff! Our Balcony looked out onto the Gulf-very cool! We ate seafood, dug for seashells, shopped on the Strand, went on a boat ride, had a couple picnics at the beach,saw dead jellyfish-yuck, went out on a fishing pier, got caught in the rain walking a mile away from our condo,spent some quality time relaxing and hanging out. We headed home with a much fuller vehicle from all our shopping and many memories we will always have with each other. It was a lot of driving and many tanks of gas but so worth it. Now I am trying to catch up and deal with the upcoming issues-Rodney is done with Medhold in 2 days!!!! Still not sure what we are supposed to be doing or what happens next. So I am trying to breath and slowly come out of the "Vacation" mode. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! I will post pics and more about our Texas trip later.
Keep Imagining!
