Reasons I love Texas--Part I

Dallas and I--photo by Abby
Last of free summertime road trip---to the Republic of Texas to visit my daughter's family, Dallas and Todd Bell, and my grandchildren, Erin, Abby and Max, who live outside Canyon, Texas. These are among the most important reasons I love Texas!
