1: Barb, Dick, Mom and Dad went out a week ahead of the rest of us to enjoy the beautiful weather a bit longer.
2: Unfortunately Mom had fallen and broke her hip within that first week. Dad also got sick and joined her in the hospital. Mom was flown back to ThunderBay and ended up having surgery once she arrived.
3: Chelsea, Jeff and Nathan were planning on coming up midweek being they had to work, so Chelsea and Jeff drove up to ThunderBay to make sure she did ok with her surgery. Mom did great and so they left and came back in time to fly out later that week. We had a wonderful time, and the only thing missing was not having Mom there.
