And oh what fun it was, but the time flew by way too quickly. The only pic I have of Dan and I together during our trip to the AZ Zoo. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and quickly headed over to our hotel and then to my son Josh and wife Dawn's apartment. Oh joy, I miss them so much! Josh took us to see the house they are building, it should be ready by the first of December. This is their first home and I am so excited for them even if it is 1800 miles away!
In their soon to be finished kitchen! They are both so excited!!
But first let me take you back to their Wedding Day 3 years ago. They were married in Madison, Wisconsin where they both attended college and took up residence and jobs after they graduated. Here they are pictured with beautiful Lake Monona and the State Capital as their backdrop.
It was a gorgeous although very hot day in June 2006.
Dan and I all spiffed up !
Katie and I . She is 16 here, 19 now and a grown- up young woman. I just wanted to share a few of these pics with you, I hope you don't mind. Josh and Dawn gave me a copy of their Wedding CD and it was so fun to look back at their pics. After spending a wonderful day with Josh, (he is a teacher in Tempe) and was able to take a personal day we headed back to our motel tired and happy. I need to rest up because tomorrow is the blogger tea party! I am so excited to meet some of these lovely ladies! Marty @ A Stroll thru Life and Sherry @ Country Wings in Phoenix got the ball rolling. Aren't they just the greatest gals! I am so grateful that I was able to attend. This is the best part about blogging, getting to meet the lovely women we have connected with.
My friend Linda T. on the left and new friend Laura on the right. Linda picked me up at our hotel and we got to reconnect after 35 years! We knew each other through our 4-H years and she attended high school with my Husband Dan. We found each other again through blogging!! Now how cool is that! Linda is such a warm ,delightful person and if you get a chance check out her lovely blog at Reminise... this and that.
Some Days are Diamonds ! I feel like I've known her forever! Marty and Karen were able to keep it a secret that Karen would be attending and boy oh boy did they do well!!! Karen made a six hour drive from LA. I about fell over when I looked over and saw the lovely Karen standing next to me. It was a priceless moment, and one I will never forget!
I hate to say it but I only have a few pics to share, I was way too busy yakking! I have a feeling lot's of you have seen plenty of pics on the other gals blogs.
Our oh so lovely table!!
After the party some of us headed over to the dollar tree. Ceekay checking out some cute little Christmas Mugs. On Friday after the blog party we headed out with Josh and Dawn. Saturday, my brother Tom drove in from Flagstaff. We spent the day visiting and having a great time. It was a wonderful glorious trip and one I will never forget!!! Hugs to all of you......... Cindy
