Weekend in Houston

The girls and I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Houston to honour my mother-in-law on the occasion of her 70th birthday. What a wonderful time we had!

Bob's sister hosted a fabulous luncheon for Jacque and her friends at Masraffs (if you are ever in Houston, DO NOT miss this restaurant!). It was such fun to see many of the ladies that I have met over the past twenty-one years and it was a treat to see Bob's childhood friend Russell who is co-owner of the restaurant. Jacque's friend Marsha prayed a beautiful prayer of blessing over her. I wish I had gotten it on video. Then we shared a delicious meal and many great conversations.

We had some great Grandpa Joe time, too!

While we were there we also had a "cultural" tour of Houston. First it was The Orange Show...

And the Beer Can House...


The little girls enjoyed the Houston Children's Museum (while Joe took Emma for a driving lesson)...

We also pulled out photos and family trees and learned more about some of the family history!

We love you, Joe and Jacque, and are so glad to have had some special time with you!  Thanks, Holly and Louise, for inviting us and for the time to create more great memories together!   XO

Many blessings!
