Back from a Fabulous Vacation

....just to say I am back home from a
but it's going to take a few days to get photos and words put together
to tell and show you what a fabulous trip
 our daughter, STACY and her sweetie, JENT,
took us on.

 Along with STACY and JENT,
we flew to Portland Oregon
for JENT to pick up a motor home his company had purchased.

It just so happens their oldest son, DREW, lives there.
STACY invited us to "go along for the ride" and

the Golden Gate Bridge
The Calif. coast line which is breathtaking
All the beautiful grape vineyards in the Napa Valley

My FB friends already have seen photos Stacy put online....
she works faster than I do..:)

a favorite foto from the trip....

...have you ever seen such a B.I.G.

meee, either...

and Mr. Sweet said it was as delicious
as it was BIG.

This was somewhere in

We LOVED seeing this beautiful waterfall...
it was sooo amazing IN PERSON...

Our grandson,
DREW and his
JESSAMY took us to this waterfall, among other beautiful sites in OREGON.

"We love ya'll sooo much...."

The Rose Garden in Portland was breathtaking and beautiful...

but our girl, STACY, was the most beautiful of all....

See what I mean ?

...all the beautiful drives along the coast line just took my breath away.
(I have about a kazillion photos of it, too. )

Stay tuned for other photos on our almost 4000 mile trip (including air miles)


I even took a seat in a BUTT STOOL
(refused to let Mr. Sweet take a photo of me in it, tho.)

and back into TEXAS 
Riding in a motor home is the ONLY way to go....:)

LOVE, bj

    Years ago, we went to Napa Valley and down to Caramel... To tell the truth, I was scared all the time in CA. For fear "The Big One' would hit and I'd be there!!!! -grin- I was so happy, when our plane lifted off, heading home. I felt... "Hahhhh, it didn't get me!!!" Silly me, hu?
