Thankful for memorable year. Here are a few of my favorite moments and places. I have had time to spend with family and friends, and quite times to appreciate all of our blessings and the beauty of our surroundings.
Our 70th birthday celebration in Puerto Vallarta , with a few members of our great family, 18 to be exact!
Returning home in mid February, Rob and I had 3 weeks to get our art show ready

Our friend and fabulous artist, Charles Smith or foundly called "Cha Cha" died in March. He loved life to the fullest!
We had lots of camping time starting in early April. We were very fortunate to have warm days and chilly nights.

It is always wonderful to get away and spend time with Sally and Helen. Every time I went this year the weather was perfect. Rob always jokes, " if the weather was always like this, I'd move to the coast"
