A weekend with family in Texas

Beli chasing geese.
now, peacefully walking side by side

After a year of being absent, we have returned to Texas to visit my maternal grandparents. Beli was two years old when we last visited and I'm not sure how much she remembered from that previous trip but I can tell you she bonded right away with her Great grandparents. Although I referred to her as Abuelita, Beli preferred to call her Granma.

Two days was not enough time to visit everyone, but we did see all of my Mom's five brothers and one sister, and many first and second cousins. It was a very memorable weekend.
Beli with her second cousin. He is only a few weeks old.
Only my Mom is missing to complete this 4 generations photo.


  1. I love to visit family.
    Nice change of pace with the black and white photos. I like.

  2. thank you. I feel that B & W photos show more "emotion?"

  3. Grandparents are the touchstone to our past. Beli may not remember anything...but the love. :-) But that she will remember 'well'!

  4. i love the picture with grandma and beli with sunglasses on. priceless!

  5. what great photos- looks like everyone had fun.

  6. Awww, Texas!! Love the photos. You're so lucky to be able to take 4 generation photos! Actually on my husband's side, we can still take 4 generation photos, so I'll do that next time we go visit our family in Texas! Beli looks so tall now. Cute little darling!!
