A last minute decision and some fast packing was the start of another road trip two weeks ago. We decided to accompany Rob to Reno and then to Lake Almanor for a familky reunion on Rob's Mom's side. His parents took the kids home with them after the weekend so I could drive to Tucson with Rob for a Habitat for Humanity service project a few days later... ah... freedom! After a whole lot of driving, some sunburns & sore muscles, and a fun getaway with my favorite person in the world, we are home again - there's no place like home! I'll post pictures soon.
This cactus resides by our front porch. It's generally a huge eye sore and a hazzard to the kids who like to ride their bikes dangerously close to it. What a pleasant surprise to find it in full bloom for the second time since we moved in almost a year ago.
Kids awaiting Sunday morning Dutch Babies. This was not staged, but true anticipation.
