Tyler is known for three things: smoked Turkey, the Rose Festival and the Azalea Festival. In past visits we've eaten the turkey and seen the rose gardens. Now we've seen the Azaleas. One area of Tyler is called the Azalea district --- this area has a lot of older homes and lots and lots of Azaleas.

This weekend, tours of historic homes were available as well as tours of gardens. The Azalea girls stood outside each home that was on one of the two tours.




It was good see all of my sisters family during our visit. The kids all love Zaph and enjoyed playing with him.

Ed and myself with our great niece Sarah and great nephews Timmy and Omar.

The kids.
