Annual Ladies trip…late ‘80s in Orlando with cuzn Steph, as well as Mom and Les.ORL Ladies trip.Mom.Les

Moi, Ginny, Grampa Les, Steph(behind Les), Marj, Lynne, Mom Margaret, Carolyn

Each day of our trip was always an adventure of shopping, eating, sightseeing—whatever—just having fun and enjoying each other.  After dinner evening we would have “show and tell” and Mom (not a shopper—AT ALL) produced her very own shopping bag (I can’t remember now what it was that she purchased) just so that she wouldn’t FLUNK show and tell!  We all got a kick out of her good nature to fit into the shopping fun.  Ahh, the memories.

We are creating more memories, and carrying on a tradition the Bell gals have done since the very first trip in 1984.  Lynne had to miss that trip to NY due to having a baby, but Mom and Steph both joined the rest of us gals for an outstanding time in the Big Apple.

Mom, Les, Marj—we miss y’all!  Ginny, wish you could be here, but we are still carrying on the family tradition, and will do so as long as we are able.  Absolutely.

Life is good, y’all!

How fun! Good memories of good times. Me and the SisterDears and MotherDear so something similar, although NOT shopping. I'm with your mom on that score. NOT a shopper. I love that I can online shop these days. no muss, no fuss.

big hugs xoxo

Jacobson's! My all time favorite store. We had one in Ohio growing up. I remember mom in the designer salon trying on dresses. Oh, the memories. I cried when they closed. Cried. Thanks for the smile today.
