Suzanne and Ken's home is so welcoming. There is always a seat at the table and a bed to sleep in. We are fortunate to be given "Anne and Ron's room" and each year there is something personal to us hanging on the wall - this year there was a collage of pictures from their visit to our home.
We love all the grandchildren - we have watched them grow up.
Out with Brendt and Abigayle
Brendt and Myranda
Myranda and Ashley cooking our breakfast
It was delicious

Suzanne and I at the Scottsdale Craft Show
Leslie joined us and we stayed cool in a nearby restaurant
Ron playing Philip's guitar while Ken cooks
One of the highlights of our visit was the Music Museum. It displayed musical instruments from all over the world - there were videos to watch the musicians and earphones to listen to the music.
The boys waiting for us
Ashley, Myranda and Philip
Suzanne and I, and Brendt
On St. Patrick's Day, Ken cooked us corn beef and cabbage. Myranda made salmon for me.
Niki and the St. Patrick's Day spread
We love Tubac and spent a day there
I have a very respectful family - they insisted that we go to a vegan restaurant
We love Sedona
The Desert Botanical Gardens - we go every year and there is always something different
The butterfly house is amazing
Of course we all had to pose as a butterfly
Gardening in Arizona is very different than here in BC.
Brendt is starting his own garden
Ken is growing a tomato plant upside down
On our last day we had fun helping Ken do yard work
Niki reading a bedtime story to Brendt - he was a trouper and got up at 3:30 am to come to the airport with us.
We are always sad to leave.
We will be back soon....
