Texas Visit

 Last weekend Liz (my sister) and I flew out to Texas. (by taking a red eye flight and spending most of the weekend going on zero sleep) 
We got to spend time with our beautiful grandma. Dementia is a hard thing to deal with,  there really is no sugar coating it. And I'll be honest when I say it scares the hell out of me, in terms of my future. But those are worries for another day. This visit was spent talking to a women who was happy to have visitors. And that's enough for me.
On Friday night we got to go to Jordan's Spring football game. So fun to be able to sit on their new field under construction. Funny story Liz and I were wearing sweat shirts and wrapped in blankets freezing. Two little girls came skipping by in shorts and tank tops happy as can be. I guess our desert living did not prepare us for the cold+humidity of Houston. Jordan played great, so glad we got to watch.
On Saturday we spent the day on the coast at Kemah. Everybody knows I love love the ocean. So I am happy as can be just being near it. Unfortunately Patrick had to work but Jordan got to go with us.
 A fun day exploring shops and the area. Interesting to see the damage the last hurricane that came through did. We ate at Bubba Gumps which was a hit with everyone. Even me they had a yummy mushroom "burger".

 Fun weekend with family. Big thanks to the Werts for treating us to such a good time.
