We Had a Great Vacation

We were gone 11 days.  We were with 56 people on a motor coach.  We knew some of the people so that made it more fun.  We were picked up in Joplin, MO and from there we went to Church Hill Downs in Louisville, KY, Washington DC, New York City, Niagara Falls and the Amish Country in Indiana.

We ate so much.  My hubby just lost 105 lbs and he was hesitant to eat but he got into the groove with the rest of us.  He lost his weight on his own, changing his eating habits and lots of exercise, no doctors involved.  He has done great.

Back to our trip.  I will show you pictures and then in another blog, explain what we did in all of the areas.

This is just a few of the photos.  I will show you more later, I promise, not a month later.  I have been to NYC before but did not get to see a lot of the sights that I got to see this time.  I had never been at the other places we visited.  I am sure a lot of you have seen these things but to us, it was great.

Thank you to all of those who read my blog.  I know I have lost some readers because I don’t post as much as I use to.  Life gets in the way but I am thankful to have a job, a family and a home to keep me busy.

Everyone have a great weekend

Blessings ♥

What a great vacation, Maxine! It looks like ya'll had a great time! And wow to your husband and congratulations to him for losing 105 lbs on his own! That's wonderful!!!

I don't think as many people are blogging these days and if they are, they just don't check in daily. Real life is most important with our family anyway, but we blog because we love it...so just keep on!! :)

Hugs,
Tammy

What a wonderful trip. I think that would be so much fun! I'd love to go to NYC but wouldn't be brave enough to attempt it on my own. A trip like yours would be the perfect way to go!

Wow, what great pictures of your trip. It all seems so wonderful! I agree with OK Granny, I'd like to go to NYC but only on a tour like you did.
So glad your back. Some of those memorials are amazingly beautiful!
As far as readers and blogging goes, I think people don't always take the time to comment after they've visted. At least that's what I tell myself. LOL!
Hugs to you~ Birgit

What a fabulous trip, Maxine! So many places I'll likely never see in my lifetime!
Can't wait to see the rest of your pics!
Hugs, Kimberly

Hi Maxine!

Sounds like a great trip! Your photos are great too. I haven't traveled very much in my lifetime, yet. Maybe one of these days.

I'm sure I have lost several readers too. I have been awful about posting lately. But you are right, life does get in the way, and has to come first.

I look forward to hearing about your trip!

Have a happy week!

Great photos! Tell your husband I am totally impressed with his weight loss under his own gumption. Outstanding!
