We had such a wonderful time in Tucson with Family! It was full of laughter, fun and lots of hugs! The week has gone by so fast but it’s time we continue on our journey. We are headed to Yuma to visit our friends, Laura and Wilbur Bradbury. They have been full timing in a Prevost for several years and spend their winters there.
Here are a few pictures of our week. This was our first evening with Christina, Noel, Brianna, Trinity and Lily. It was so great to have them stop by and greet us. We hadn’t seen them since 2012 and they have grown so much. We are so proud of all of them! Alex, the oldest, had to work that night and couldn’t join us. He’s a senior in high school and working part time at Subway.
Our Grand Daughter Brianna is playing in the Catalina Foothills Marching Band. They put on a great performance with around 260 band members. It’s amazing to see those formations in sync with the music. It was their final game of the year and the football team won in a big way by around 50 points.
We took time to do some sightseeing and drove up to Mt. Lemmon. It was about 30 degrees cooler than the valley with great scenery. The leaves were starting to turn so we used them as a backdrop. We had just finished our lunch at The Iron Door restaurant and found someone willing to take our pic. The food was very good and the wait staff was great. It is a long windy road up and down the mountain with fantastic scenery of Saguaro Cactus, pine and other trees in abundance.
We had such a nice visit with our daughter, Brenda, and her family from Mesa. Daughters, Christina and Melanie, completed the group. We visited all afternoon and ended up at Whataburger restaurant later for dinner before we parted. It was a great time seeing all of them. We got to give and get lots of hugs; nothing better than that!
Here is a great pic of Tenishia Noel and I celebrating her 21st Birthday. It’s hard to believe that she is now an adult. (Tenishia is Melanie’s daughter.) Time sure fly’s by! We are very proud of the woman she has become.
Here are some pics of the ride up the Catalina Mountains to Mt. Lemmon.
