Cleveland Aquarium


Sorry I have been absent lately in posting things.  I have been trying to care for my Mom along with hospice (My Mom has pancreatic cancer - diagnosed May 2012).

I had a few hours to work on my 2012 scrapbook.  Yeah.... I know I'm far behind, but I'll get caught up eventually.  Here is a trip to Cleveland, where I went to the new Cleveland Aquarium with my brother, Dan, and Tracy.  It was a really neat place to visit.

I used a sketch I found on Pinterest from Susan Williams' blog. Thanks Susan!

I'm back.... did you miss me?  Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  The holiday season is always busy, but this 2013 was really busy for us.  Ours was a happy and sad holiday.... we flew to Christmas to celebrate it with my side of the family, and to celebrate the wedding of my little brother.  The sad part.... was that my Grandma (my Dad's Mom) passed away during that time.  It was good that the whole family was there, so that we could all be together.
