Having mom visit us!

On August 4th Bob and I picked up mom at the Denver airport and drove her to Fort Collins to visit her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She lives in Decatur, Texas that is about 40 miles north of Fort Worth. It was a blast having her here.While we were in Fort Collins, we spoiled her a little by shopping and getting her a couple of new dresses, going out to eat...especially Jim's Wings, and golfing with her daughter(me) and her granddaughters, Rachel and Andrea. Mom will be 87 on the 26th of this month and shot a 54 on nine holes. Awesome golf, mom!!!  We also took in some antique stores, at which, Andrea and I bought stuff and mom did not. But as you can see in the pictures, the rocking horse was a great buy!
One of the most fun things we got to do was to take photos of three and four generations. I am sure we wore her out, but it was such a great time together. We spent four days in Fort Collins and then drove back to Grand Junction with her. What a great time of visiting with her. And we are so thankful for Marlene Bonella who used some of her air miles to fly mom here and back home. What a blessing for mom and for our family. I took tons of pictures and we got a lot of them printed for mom to take home and I know she will cherish this trip as much as I do.
