I'm Back.......

This was the veiw from where we were camping! It was so beautiful. The picture doesn't give it justice. The weather was perfect. Day-time temps in the 70's and 80's and night time in the 40's.

Thank you for praying for us while we were on our spring break vacation this past week. We had a very nice trip. We loaded up our 25 year old, 35 foot motor home with the 2 dogs, 2 cats and 14 year old grandson and we headed for the beautiful Sonoran Desert southwest of Tucson only a few miles from the old western town of Old Tucson where they filmed hundreds of movies and TV shows. I'll have some pictures next week of our trip. The desert is so beautiful in the spring.

The animals did great! We were very concerned if the cats would be able to handle the drive, but they were troupers! It was so nice not having the TV and Internet. It forces a family to talk, and play games! Travis and I played and played and played! I think we are monopoly out!! LOL. I felt pretty well while we were gone too. I was even able to take walks! First time in 6 years! Yeah!!! God is so good! I even climbed aboard a little train that went around Old Tucson, and I even went on the Carousel!!!

We had to leave a day early though because the well dried up that furnished the water for the campground. All in all we had a great trip. But it's always nice to be back home. There is nothing like home!

I missed everyone! Please bear with me as I try to answer over 150 of your emails and visit your blogs. I need to catch up to the blogging world! LOL!
