Day Off in Arizona

I had a grand time in Arizona. Weather was nice, but visiting was the best! Jari got me from the airport and brought me out for lunch at a great mom & pop Chinese place. We had been there on a prior visit. Good food; great visit. Anita was working, but I got some quiet time with their kids which was nice. Frans & Jenny came and brought pizza for supper. We can just chat the night away! Got some reading done in the morning, then to play broomball in the evening. My kids didn't think I would actually go play. They must not see that side of me enough. Pictures don't lie. After broomball, a bunch of moms, along with Alyx and Alissa, went to Chipotle. We were visiting so intently, we didn't realize they had washed the tables and put up chairs around us until Jenny went outside to use the phone and found she was locked out. How embarrassing to have the place close around us. Spent that night and the next morning at Frans & Jenny's. That evening, after supper at Anita & Jari's, we went to visit at Jeanette's. Wayne's mom is staying there for several weeks, so got to visit her there as well. Benefit breakfast at the church in the morning. More good visiting time there during Sunday school and after services. On to Souper!Salad! with Anita & kids and Frans & Jenny and kids. With full bellies, Anita and I went back to her place and reminisced while going through old photos, then laughed into the morning. We figured it was time to hit the sheets when we were down to four hours of sleep before heading to the airport. Thanks to all you AZ folks and to Wayne and my kiddos for a wonderful D.O. (Day Off)! I think I could get used to this. -b

I can't believe I got these posted! Thanks Wayne and Debbie for your assistance. Of course, I don't dare be too confident in my ability to do it again as I ended up deleting and reposting multiple times.

I'm glad you had a great vacation. It sounds like a lot of fun.

I am jealous of the Souper Salad. I love that place and wish we had one up here somewhere.

she isn't kidding when she said that she deleted and reposted many times, deleting was NOT on purpose, she needed much assistance, but i am proud of her for figuring it out eventually -debbise
