Journaling reads: In the back row, second from the left, is my lovely grandmother, Pearl. She was 15 years old in this photo. My grandfather, Chester McCance, was once engaged to Marie, Grandma’s sister, who is standing next to Grandma. When Marie got sick with T.B., and ultimately died at 22 years old, my grandfather started dating Grandma, fell in love, and he asked for her hand in marriage.

An annual event the last weekend in March. If you haven't had an opportunity to see the reenacting of the Battle of Goliad, Texas and Goliad Massacre, you should do so. It is one-of-a-kind, was well worth the drive, and there was such an abundance of Spring flowers, too. These are just a few of the photos we took on 3/27/10. Journaling reads: After learning of the fall of the Alamo, General Sam Houston ordered Col. James Fannin and his men to abandon La Bahia and fall back to Victoria. They began the retreat on March 19, 1836. Mexican General José de Urrea and his men attacked Col. Fannin and the Texians on the banks of Coleto Creek. Although the Texians initially repulsed the attacks, they soon ran out of water and Fannin surrendered. The Texians were escorted back to La Bahia, arriving by March 22, 1836. Although Urrea requested that Santa Anna treat the prisoners with clemency, on March 27, 1836, the men were marched from the fort and slaughtered by Mexican soldiers, in an event known as the Goliad Massacre.

Today is my Mom's First Birthday in Heaven. Missing her a lot today. She loved Lilacs so much, and always had so many purple and white ones in her yard. I loved all the flowers in her yard, but especially the Lilacs. Happy Birthday, Mom. I used Erica Belton's beautiful Lilacs and Old Lace Value Collection for Mom's page.

The "Mexican Eagle" is the national bird of Mexico, and is of the Falcon family. Kit used to create this page is Abbey Fields Value Collection by Lauren Bavin.
