Busy and Fun

We had a lot of fun visiting with our son Eric and his family, wife Liz and children Kylie and John, who made a spring break trip to Arizona. They arrived Saturday afternoon and we joined them at their resort, the Pointe Hilton at Squaw Peak. We checked out the River Ranch section of the resort--an elaborate water park that they enjoyed each day of their stay.

Then we shared the KFC bucket of chicken we had picked up on our drive over there.

Sunday they joined us for Palm Sunday services at Epiphany, then we spent some time in their pool.

Tuesday, they came to VDO and we gave them a tour of our winter home. Kylie, John and Eric all tried out the treadmills in the exercise room.

We showed the grandchildren the garden railroad setup.

They were interested in the lapidary shop, the leather shop and especially the woodshop. Kylie had taken woodshop at her middle school and she really enjoyed seeing all the equipment we use. Unfortunately, she isn't in this picture I took there.

Next, we all visited our swimming pool. The four of them enjoyed playing, while a lot of senior residents who didn't want to get their hair wet looked on apprehensively.

After grilling brats at our place last evening, we saw a beautiful full moon coming over the horizon.

They left early this morning and as I post this, they are home in Colorado after a 700 mile drive. Would you believe we take 3 to 5 days to drive that distance?


  1. And now you can rest. LOL Actually that all looked like a lot of fun.

  2. It is always nice to meet the family ,this year we are taking one grandson with us as a Barmizva (13 years old) present,he is excited and so are we.
    Best of all.
