My mom passed away on June 25, 2014

It is with great sadness that I share that my sweet, generous, down to earth, tell it like it is, loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away unexpectedly yesterday from natural causes on June 25th. My parents would have celebrated their 60th anniversary on June 26th. Next week along with some of my family members we will travel to Canada for the Funeral on July 2, 2014.

Looking around Seoul June 9, 2014

We were able to get around town very easily on the subway.

It was also fun to walk along the river with the clear water.

Mark and I are in Seoul Korea. June 7, 2014

Mark and I arrived in Seoul yesterday for the weekend. The view from our window is great.

20140607-213517-77717631.jpg
The pastry snacks are delicious.

20140607-213546-77746463.jpg
The crunchy crabs are very tasty.

20140607-213615-77775207.jpg
Today we took a bus tour up to the DMZ, near the North Korean border.

A view of the DMZ.

20140607-213809-77889764.jpg
A guard got on our bus and looked at everyone’s passports before we could enter the DMZ.

20140607-213902-77942894.jpg

20140607-213904-77944029.jpg
This is as close as we got to the North Korean border. You had to stand behind the yellow line to take pics, or the guard yelled at you.

20140607-214023-78023414.jpg
Mark toured the 3rd tunnel the North Koreans dug to attack South Korea. Small spaces are not my favorite so I stayed a live ground.

20140607-214223-78143643.jpg
We finished off the evening with an ice cream treat.

A great way to celebrate our 34th anniversary. I am so happy we could spend the day together. Hoping for many more.
