A Dream Coming True

Even though we had a few trials and tribulations getting here, I find I am spending New Years Eve just as I had hoped and dreamed to for a long time.


In an RV... With a retired husband ... and our two grandsons, on a trip to an event I have wanted to go to for many, many year, The Rose Parade.


Priceless.


Happy New Years Everyone!

  11. Oh Merikay, I am soooo excited for you and I can't wait to see your photos of the parade. My childhood memories are filled with the smell of the parade flowers and the beauty of the horses. We went every year I was growing up. Would surely love to do it again, although the traffic through LA from Desert Hot Springs is more than we want to endure. Maybe some other year.

  16. I'm so glad your dream came true. I've lived in California all my life, Southern CA for years, and never made it to the parade. There's nothing like a great parade! I hope you loved it. (And remembered your camera.)

    Happy New Year to you and Craig and your family! :)
