|Pre surgery. She's a pro at it!|
|I walked into WalMart by Liz's house and was greeted by a mariachi band. Never seen that before!|
However the weekend before surgery, Ron and I left the LBJ Historical Park and headed for some relaxing time at our favorite spot – Fentress on the San Marcos River, at my cousin’s land.
|Forgot to mention that it was also my 60th birthday weekend celebration!|
This extra time with Liz and Lucy gave me the opportunity to watch several of Lucy’s softball games and go to her dance recital. She’s an awesome 3rd base player. I am amazed at her level of concentration. And that dance recital! Such a production!

|Hardly recognize her!|
|3 generations here!|
|She always gets a hit!|
Also got to see another of Aiden’s baseball games. He has so much fun and is really good.
Ron and I went to the Hostyn Catholic Church picnic one Sunday. These picnics are so fun! Not only do we get to see family, but there is great food, beverage and polka music!

I felt things were going good enough with Liz that on May 21 we pulled out and headed to Garner State Park for a week. It was so nice! The perfect time to come as the crowds started pulling in that weekend for Memorial Day. The river is pretty low. It’s not going to be much fun if they don’t get some much needed rain soon. We went back to Fentress for Memorial Day weekend. My Uncle Pete passed away but we were able to head back for his service. So good to see my cousins again!
|The Frio River has such pretty clear water!|
|Ron getting our floats ready.|
|Check out this woodpecker!|
|This Vermillion Flycatcher was quite entertaining!|
|A beautiful pair of cardinals!|
We headed back to our spot in Sweeny at the Backyard RV Park on Memorial Day. This is a nice place, but it’s still concrete. It does back up to the city park so it’s easy for me to go walking on the days when I’m here. I am thankful that we have family that gives Ron things to do while I head back to Houston and Liz. Lucy has one more week of school and Liz is still in a hard non-weight bearing cast. Just easier for me to go back and help. However, she ended up getting into a walking boot after her doctor appointment this week. I decide to go back to Sweeny and then……whammy she gets an abcessed tooth the next day. She just can’t catch a break!
|Lucy got to go to an Astros game with cousin Matt!|
|Swimming after a long day of school!|
|That last day of school!!! Check out my piano!! LOL!|
|Off with the cast of 2 weeks!|
|Into a walking boot, finally, for the next 2 months!|
We stayed in Sweeny for a few more days. Babysitting both grandkids and getting in those final doctor appointments before we head out to Inks Lake for a week long vacation with family and then finally leave for Colorado. Did some fun things with the grands during this time!
|Someone did great at fishing!|
|Lucy visiting Great Grandma!|
|It's time to leave the cement trailer park!|

Up next…….family time at Inks Lake and travels to Colorado.
