~THE GIFT ....~

This picture was taken at the Huntington Library this past  Thursday.   
In the photo is my daughter Mary, my Grandson Adam's wife Cristina, me and Great Granddaughter Emily. 
Natalia took this lovely photo of us.  Thank you Natalia!  :)

It houses a fantastic art collection.  Being interesting in European History..I had a wondeful time.
The silver collection...well..it's wonderful but I can tell you this...
MINE is beginning to rival it!  LOL

The entire day trip was a gift from my wonderful daughter Mary and her husband and their family, Alex, Natalia, Christina and Emily.
Thanks girls, for all the trouble you went to for me.  I love my gifts!!
..here I am with Patient Husband walking and walking and walking..
 to the Japanese gardens.. (puff puff!)



THANK HEAVENS for benches!!

And someone to lean on...

More tomorrow about our day in Pasadena! 

Love,
Mona

Hi Mona,
You have such a lovely family and just look at you looking so pretty. I am in love with your hair! Your daughter looks so much like you.

What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful day. Strolling through lovely gardens until your dog tired had to be worth it.

hugs
Sissie

So beautiful. Tell Abby that we are having an online craft show on Friday, maybe she can come and visit with me while I am watching Mom's stall. Can you believe that I have to work? Pfft...
