Vicki enjoys playing Pokeno and Bunco, dining out with friends and attending sporting events, especially the Astros and the Texans. But her favorite sporting events are going to her grandson’s baseball games and her granddaughters’ swim meets. She loves spending time with her grandchildren doing crafts, baking and cooking. Oh, and getting all their hugs and kisses! Go, ‘Stros!
