Labor Day trip to Chicago.

Taelynn checking out what Mommy bought at the Hershey store.

Outside the Potbelly sandwich shop...their sandwiches were very yummy.
POTBELLY is named for the potbelly stove.

Taelynn saw the balloons at the Potbelly shop and she wanted one...she really
likes balloons!
Looking down on the parking garage from our motel
room. Taelynn loved looking out this window...seeing the
cars and the people down on the street.

Me on my little buggy and Taelynn in her stoller and this is
how we toured Chicago.

On the 11th of  September Chris, Shawn, Mason, and I went with the camper to spend a week at William's Produce. We got there in the evening...spent some time visiting and then to bed.

Before I was up the next day Janna came bounding in the camper and by her voice I knew something
was wrong. She had just gotten a call from CVM...they went to make sure she was up for breakfast....
they found that she had passed away sometime during the night

This is  what we saw when we went to Mom's room.

The next day this is what was on Mom's bed.

Flowers..roses and hydrangeas
We chose purple not knowing that was Mom's favorite.

Pictures of the tables.
