Small pic is her in the nursing home in

Aren't triple posts fun? Great choices for all the events. The pictures and story of your MIL's mother are just fantastic, and that she was still playing while living in the retirement home is so neat! Love the wall vignette you have of her pictures. Is that her fiddle? Kathy

I enjoyed all your Wed. posts, but the Palo Duro Canyon is my favorite. Dh and I lived in the panhandle in 86 & 87, and enjoyed going to PDC several times.

Have a good WW☺

What great pictures. I love the Irish dance pics and the canyon pic. I hope your DH and son have a wonderful time. My favorite of all though is the pic of the fiddle and pictures and story of your MIL's mother. That is just priceless. What precious family memories. Hugs, Marty

Cool picture. Hope Hubby & Son enjoy the canyon. This is the time of year that the giant lupin (big versions of the Texas State Flower - Blue Bonnet) are in bloom. Maybe they'll bring you some photos of them.

Hello Candy,
Loved the grouping,I think it is wonderful that your son is carrying on the tradition of fiddle playing, I love fiddle music.
That is one beautiful canyon,I know your family are really enjoying time there this week. Texas is one of my favorite states to visit, our daughter lives in San Antonio.
