Mosaic Monday: It's all about family...

It's all about family...

We just put our son, his family and his mother-in-law on the plane this morning, headed south to their home in Mexico. They were here for
three weeks. Lance is our oldest son and our business partner in our farming operation.
The farms are located near Manzanillo.
Lance and his wife, Marcela,
their two small children and Marcela's mother,
our youngest son, Ryan, my husband and I all
went to South Padre Island, Texas
to enjoy the beach, Schlitterbahn,
shopping, seafood and just a lot of fun.
Our granddaughter enjoyed two weeks
of swimming, golf, raquetball and
making new friends at the summer camp
sponsored by the club we belong to.
This will probably be the only visit up here for the whole family. Now we will have to make
trips down there to see them.
My son proposed a new idea this visit
which I am thrilled about.
He wants his daughter to learn more about
U.S. holidays, so we are going to
go down there for Thanksgiving!
Lance baked a turkey last year,
complete with gluten-free dressing
(our granddaughter has celiac disease)
and other traditional dishes.
So, we will be spending Thanksgiving
in Mexico!
I just wanted to share with you a few
of the pictures from the past three weeks.
The top left picture in the mosaic is
my granddaughter and me. She helped to
serve birthday cake for a joint birthday
party we gave for our sons.
