It's always good to come home but we had a wonderful three weeks visiting our son and his family in Arizona. They had moved from Colorado to new jobs (in education) in the Phoenix area. Specifically Scottsdale and Queen's Creek. On the way down we stopped at The Petrified Forest National Park. Going home it was a detour through the southern Ozarks in Arkansas. Once I get the tons of pictures sorted out......
Oh, it look so dry and, well, cactus-y there! So different from my own home, I had forgotten. Cute family, they look like they are having fun.ReplyDelete
Lovely time indeed. I used to camp in Queen Annes canyon near there. I went to school in Tucson at the U of AZ.ReplyDelete
Glad you're back! Sounds like a neat trip and so much fun to visit grandkids!ReplyDelete

You definitely have a very handsome family.
