So, we had planned and saved and planned for a long visit back to our home state of Arizona all year long. Money was tight, heck, when is it NOT tight?? But, we made the trip in record time, with no carsick tummies or vomit involved. That is a good thing. We drove the entire 23 hour drive in 2 days, with a ridiculously quick overnighter in Provo.
We went to Mesa first to visit with the Barton side. It was a wonderful time! We had a quick birthday party for my December birthdays.
Jay, Aubrey and Emily wait anxiously with their cake while we sing to them.
A little wiffle-ball at the retention basin in the BEAUTIFUL weather.
Zoo Lights. At the Phoenix Zoo. Followed by apple/cherry fritters and hot chocolate.
It was a fun, busy visit to see all my family. We spent about 5 days in Mesa thoroughly enjoying the weather and family.
