Visiting My Daughter-Day One

Hubby and I took a much needed vacation (I was becoming really, really whiny) and visited our daughter and her family. What a joy to take a road trip and be blessed to see family!

Rhododendron

Our daughter loves photography, so she and I just hung out and practiced together. Enjoy the stroll in her little garden!
