Destination: Weslaco, Texas.

Who went: Rose Deak of Lodi.

I had a dream trip for my birthday. I went to my home state of Texas and visited my birthplace of Weslaco, in the magic valley of the Rio Grande. I visited with my oldest sister and youngest brother and saw many of my friends from high school. My brother also took me to South Padre Island, and I had a blast. Everything has grown so much; it was hard to believe. South Padre Island has the most beautiful, world-class beaches and now has many hotels and is a huge draw during spring break for many college students.

For all the changes, one thing remains constant, and that is the weather, which, in a word, is beautiful and almost sub-tropical. Life remains slower-paced than California, and it was nice to be home again. We traveled from Brownsville to McAllen, Texas, all in the southeastern part of the state. I enjoyed the time and company so much that I absolutely want to visit again in the future.
