The highlight of March, was our belated celebration with this 1-year-old!
Don and I had planned on being with our granddaughter on her Valentine's Day Birthday. But we delayed our trip for March.
Quick Mardi Gras
The night before we flew to Oregon, we squeezed in some Mardi Gras celebrating.
We finished packing and celebrated with beads and Sazeracs!
From Houston to Oregon
I love pre-dawn drives to the airport.
We left balmy Texas and arrived in the cool, moist state of Oregon on March 2.
One Year Old
It was wonderful spending time with this spunky little girl. At the time of our visit, Charlie was two months older than when we'd last seen her.
Charlie's Aunts were able to come spend some time as well. A year ago, our group of 7 gathered in this house when Charlie was 2 months old... we weren't vaccinated then and Charlie seemed so tiny. The world feels so different now!
Celebrating is a lot more fun this year!
Just spending time in the house was enough!
But it was nice feeling comfortable, out in the world a little more!
We had our first inside dining experience with Charlie!
On a cool, sunny day, we made it to the park. Charlie had her first time in a park swing! It was hard heading back to Texas.
Spring in Texas
But we were back in time for bluebonnets!
These were spotted on a walk in a nearby neighborhood.
International Art & Kite Festival
Just a few miles from home, I ventured to an annual event that I've never attended.
The weather was perfect. Just warm enough and just windy enough.
Friends Again in March
March marked 2 years, since our real pandemic worrying began. This March, suddenly felt so much more relaxed.
It felt good to catch up with friends again... in person.
Although Don and I have traveled during these 2 years, we got out and enjoyed a quick trip with friends, Christy and Alan.
A few lovely spring days, wandering in Texas Hill Country! What a great way to end the month!
