Photo of the Week - Week 42 - ARIZONA
Week 42 of 52
Location: Tucson, Arizona
Subject: Arizona Wildflowers
In honor of our recent trip to Arizona, this week's photo is of my favorite Arizona wildflower. I always loved these bright, happy flowers. They made everything so sunshiny and happy.
Our trip out west was great. The drive out was tremendously long. We were driving into the big snowstorm that hit New Mexico/Texas/Oklahoma so we decided to avoid it and head the long way through Texas. Ugh! That is the only word for it. It makes the long drive to Arizona seem so much longer heading the long way through that big ol' state.
We arrived safe, sound, exhausted, and with full bellies thanks to a stop at a burrito shop for some breakfast burritos. YUM!! We spent a few precious days with my big sis and her family. Friday was girls day and gift exchange. Then Saturday we headed to Tucson to visit family and friends down there. It was good to see everyone. Saturday we had BBQ at my other big sis's house and we had friends from Marana, Green Valley, and Silver City come to see us. Miss my girls so much! Sunday we vegged all day, gearing up for the big drive back.
We arrived home at 4 o'clock in the morning Wednesday and each of us headed straight for our beds and slept soundly. Some of us until almost noon. And those "some of us" were the ones that slept most of the way home in the first place!
It was a great trip, tinged with a bit of worry for events happening back home, but it was really good to spend those few precious days with loved ones. We will be back in May, with hopefully a few more days to see everyone we missed this trip.
Love you all and can't wait to see you again!
