February 2015: Miami and Whitefish

After a month in La Feria, Texas, Bob and Diane flew to Miami on Feb. 3.  Bob left to ski with Tom, Jett, and Caiden on the 24th.  Diane went to DC from Miami for a few days with Doug, Sara, RJ, and Julia.  We were both back in Texas in March.

daughter Meg, and Meg's husband and daughter
