Thanksgiving Week 2018 11/24/20

Thanksgiving week 2018, we received last minute permission to travel with Robbie to Oklahoma to see his two sisters. His lungs had fluid in them from cancer, he was weak and often tired, but we had a great week together. It made us a little nervous to travel, since his dr said we should find…

The Houston Zoo has an adorable baby elephant. I enjoyed watching him play today. The closer it gets to the holidays, the more difficult it is without Robbie. I stopped by the zoo for a quick trip. Many memories. ❤
